A Cut Above The Rest

Barber Shop

After weeks of contemplation, I got my hair cut yesterday. I try to get it cut every three months or so, whether I need to or not. I didn’t get too much cut off as I don’t like to have it too short and I prefer to show off my curls. The barber told me that he was not as busy as he used to be as people were not getting their hair cut as often. However, I might have to go back sooner that I would like as he didn’t take that much off. Here are some tunes for all the barbers and hairdressers who’ve had the pleasure of cutting my hair over the years!

  1. I went to the barber shop across from the railway station. It cost me €14, which isn’t too bad for Limerick, I guess. That thirty euro would appear to be a sound investment. And you must really trust your wife as well!

  2. How much did they charge btw? they got very expensive over the last few years. I get my missus to cut my hair now, invested 30euro in a clipper set. can result in a dodgy barnet from time to time…
