    Next time try Haircut Sir ? 3 Tulse Hill SW2 2TH opposite Sainers. Friendly sister and brother outfit in retro surroundings and only a tenner ...

    I used to go The Barber of Seville which kind of sat nicely half way between a no frills barber and a hairdressers, with a price of £16 which again seemed fairly balanced between barbers and hair salons.

    But a few months ago someone here reported they’d just put their prices up by a whole tenner, and frankly for £26 you might as well go to a proper hairdresser. The Shout House in Tulse Hill is pretty decent IME if you’re ever feeling flashy and want to have a more elaborate haircut than a barbers job.

    Good haircuts but run by a person with a challenging personality ... :)

    Is he? I’ve never had a proper chat or my hair cut by him. He always seems to be talking about Arsenal.

    Is it a tenner now? Last time I was in it was £8.50, which was a bargain. I remember it being £5 not that long ago when Andy was on the scissors.

    When it got to £7, I'd tell them to keep the change from £10. So as they put it up, I'd pay the same and their tip goes down.

    The last time I went down, they were closed for a week or something so I went to Cosy in Tulse Hill. A decent haircut, but £12, plus a quid tip brings me well beyond Haircut Sir.

    At my age, the barber needs to be very creative with cutting some parts and not others.

    I may be doing them down Smick - it probably is less than a tenner. Thinking about it I give them a tenner knowing theres a tip included. I'll check.

    A new place has opened in Tulse Hill, charging £12 for a dry cut, but an opening offer of £10. A bit hipsterish. Lots of bare brick.

    I was thinking of giving it a go tomorrow...

    I also love to see new business succeed through hard work. But am also protective of businesses which have given me good service over the years.

    Maybe get each to give you half a haircut.
