|Michael The Barber Best kept Secret|
But often with a trim round the bottom you can get the same result with out robbing the bank at your local salon just do not expect a cappuccino , five minute head rub at the back wash and latest recomendations to the top spots in town you would get in the really high end Salons.
How ever when it comes to men's hair, I gave up years ago getting my friends to cut my locks it took too long and they never really did what I wanted except for the brilliant Martyne Fletcher who used to tend the late Joanne Rivers
I gravitated to going to Sassoon's who really never once made me happy and other high end Salon often leaving feeling robbed at £50 -£80 for a trim. One day I was just about to give up when saw a man in the gym who's hair I liked so following my own advise I asked where he had it cut. "Mike the Barbers " he replied . A local men's shop that I had seen but would never dream of trusting my blond do to a shop a barbers.
I actually stood outside for three or four minutes to get up the nerve to go in, before asking for Mike, a dashing bubbly local legend in Earl's Court. For sure there was not cappuccino in sight and no head rub, in fact unless you request it they do not wash your hair , as I more than often had to take the brush off the stylists in the high end salons and dry it myself so it was no loss to me.
Unlike many Sassoon people I noticed they where experts with razor's and thinning scissors. I told Mike what i wanted and he asked if I would like the harsh line softened a bit , it had always bugged me that they could not soften it. always ended up with a server wedge or fire fly With in 15 minutes for the first time in years I loved my hair and did not need to grow a bit back or wish it had been cut shorter in another.
Even better it was £11, I get it cut every two weeks now to keep it neat and I go with out worrying it will be yet another disappointment . Mike has been doing my hair for six years and every fella i recommend goes again and again and one or two short hair ladies love him too.
Now colouring is another thing only go to high end , but i will get to that soon.
