Old School Hair Style

Barber shops like this are getting lesser as stylish and modern hair saloons mushroom around the city.
Customers who frequent this shop are mainly looking for a hair cut. Nothing flashy, nothing fashion-y, just make my shorter. Period.
The price is at RM10 per hair cut. With RM 5 more, you get shaving. The barber normally ends their routine by giving pats on the customer's shoulder and a twist on their neck. I am always afraid to see they way they twist people's head, for fear that the head will end up rolling on the ground.
Besides all these no-nonsense regular, there are mums who bring their boys over for a hair cut. I can imagine one mother telling the son : "Well, when you are old enough to earn a living, you can choose where you want your hair done. While you are still in school, you should look like a student."
Lol..I guess trendier hairstyles for these young boys are perhaps something to look forward to.

I prefer a barber shop like this than a fancy hair salon ... It always has friendlier atmosphere about it ...

Yes, you don't see many like this. I like the sepia tone of the photo. It makes it look 1950's.

I've got something for you! Head over to Cheltenham and check out Tuesdays post :)
