Discussion in 'Brixton' started by editor, Oct 1, 2017.
Following on from September's thread, here's the autumnal October one.
And here's a good way to start off the month:
Brixton Bookjam brings another night of literary enlightenment to Hootananny this Mon, 2nd Oct, 7.30pm
Got sent this.
You've got a couple more days to enter!
Win one pair of free tickets for Celebrate Pegasus! – a celebration of black presence in opera, Thurs 5th Oct
Oh no... I've got a few cards with Rosa on it. Very sad.
Take the money! Keep it going for as long as possible. When the penny drops it will make for an interesting meeting between client and agency....
weird troll attempt surely?
No I get sent a fair bit of spectacularly clueless stuff like this.
Was a bit bereft this afternoon. Having waited a couple of weeks for "Michaels" the barber of Loughborough Road delayed return from Cyprus, the place was again closed today.
I zipped up to Tulse Hill on a 415 but Haircut Sir turned out to be closed on Mondays.
Anybody have any suggestions for a cheap gentleman's haircut. Looking for less than half the pirce of Pop Brixton, where apparently they trim the beards of Hipster dogs!
I use Michael's or the place next to the Academy. Their rate has gone up to £10.00 though.
Not tempted by "BRIXTON'S VIBRANT HUB FOR TODAYS MODERN MAN"?
A 'Gentleman's wash cut' is just £27 created with "laid back cool for skool approach with the inherent flair and zest."
How about a shave for a mere £30. Best of all, it comes with a "pre-shave consultation."
Porters Barbers Brixton
A pick me up facial for £25? You get a consultation with that too.
Please see above.
Gonna check Michaels in the morning, & if shut try Tulse Hill.
Further research need - Michael had to retire at some point, and Michael Jr apparently has his own salon elsewhere.
I use Andrews, top of Brixton Hill.
Herne Hill's still got three normal barbers
I see that the Boom Burger place has scuttled off from whence it came and now the premises have got the name Donburi & Co, so presumably it's going to be some sort of rice place.
And next door the Vapes 'rebel soul' (whaaa?) place has got all edgy and started playing music loud from a speaker in their door.
a speaker actually in a door?
No, one wedged in by their door. Vibrant!
Maybe of interest to some, but it's a bit too backslappy for me.
It's about the resident DJ at Phonox.
I have started using the Barber of Seville on Coldharbour Lane. Near Clifton Mansions. Price varies from £10 to £16. Friendly and unpretentious.
The coolest barber shop in Brixton - The Barber De Seville
I think he has been unwell recently.
Used to use Barber de Seville and now gone to Porters. Well worth the extra £10. Proper service. Proper wash. Free drinks. BdS is ok if you want a quick in and out but if you want to have your hair cut properly then would recommend Porters. The only catch 22 is that at BdS I got my hair cut every 5 weeks as they did it way too short each time. Porters I have been to 3 times in 2 months because they cut it just right but then my hair grows bloody quickly.
It was good last night. It's such a great idea and free every time too

She had been ill with cancer for some time. Patrick had kept her going for longer than had been predicted initially.
Yes it's very sad. People in shop were asking where she was. Rosa was very popular with children. She was very good with them.
Will be sorely missed.
