Interesting. So you're giving a $7 tip?

Up until now I've paid 20 dollars for a haircut that includes shave, shampoo, styling and a massage with both hands (fists!) and electric massager. (no tips in Japan). Took about 45 minutes, and everything was very meticulously done. This was a very regular barbershop in the suburbs outside Tokyo.

Only problem was that they seemed unable to cut hair without going to town with the thinning shears. Oh and I've moved. Now living in central Tokyo and I'm finding some steep price differences. Nothing under 30 bucks. And I'm also looking at barbers/salons with some experience cutting foreign hair and there everything starts at 60 bucks.

$25 + $5, my barber can do anything. I don't know how many times I've gone in with some blurry pics on my phone and said "can you do this?" And he always does, perfectly, and makes no comment on the extensive collection of hipstery vintage mug shots on my phone.

Yes, and it's all over my face too. And I also have a huge nose.




The lack of comment on the hipster phone gallery alone is enough for the price of admission, Mr. Randal. I'm jealous. I gotta find somebody like that.

The eyebrows could maybe stand some work, but I quite like the beard.

The eyebrows only stand up like that when someone makes fun of my nose.

Yup, $7 tip, every time.  I pay what I think it's worth.

Up until December last year, I paid £10, and that was for both me and my 6 year old boy!   It included hairwashing, a coffee and plenty of eye candy. Oh and 'products', whatever they are(?) but I never used them so cant comment on what they were.
Since Chrimbo, I have gone back to using my old clippers at a #4 :)

[edit] Shorty, I don't remember cutting your hair? Must've been a different Doc?

I've been using my barber for about 10 years. He's a nice Czech immigrant who sometimes practices english on me, or asks me what some words mean. He charges $15 and I pay $20.
