Difficult to beat a free haircut isn't it. The whole operation is very professional and I have never been disappointed. I don't see how I would return to paying for my haircuts. To be honest, you pay a little bit with your time as trainees some times take more time than an old pro would. However, they are up to date with all the latest styles and trends.
I went in for a shave and a haircut, and while I understood that it was free because people are learning, it isn't an experience I want to repeat.
First off, the shave took 45 minutes and my barber's hands shook the whole way through. He was clearly new at it, and the instructor just let him go about the business of covering my neck in shaving cuts, despite producing a worse shave than I can at home with a Gilet.
Then the hair cut. Wasn't necessarily bad, but no effort was put into understanding what I wanted or explaining what would be done. Again I got the distinct impression the trainee was as fresh as they come, but worse was the dismissiveness I felt from the instructor, who when cleaning up the cut actually "tossed" my head rather than ask me to adjust or even just gently push.
I understand it's a busy environment, and people are learning. But I was treated like meat, not a person.
Great place, top teachers and the students are always enthusiastic.
