Friendly, efficient little barber shop right next to the town centre. The biggest selling point is they are open on Mondays, so it's one of the only places you can get your hair cut at that time. Lots of barbers working all hours, a cosy enough waiting area and good haircuts. Cash only, student discount.
I loved my haircut from a Hispanic man working there on 7/25/11. I asked him to cut my hair a certain length, and he suggested that it would be too short. He cut my hair longer than I asked and told me he would cut it shorter afterwards if I wished. He was very professional, cutting my hair with care, and he had a good vibe.
I left this place feeling angry. I am an international student and their billboard said Students: Mon-Wed cost 9 pounds. It had an asterisk that said a Cambridge ID was required. When I went to pay, I asked for the student price and the other employee at the register (Blond hair, blue eyes) said that it was not for international students. I guess my ID is a little different from resident students. He was persistent and even went on to say it was for Masters and Ph.D students only! That is the biggest bullshit I have ever heard.
My student ID is officially from Cambridge.
I am enrolled and being taught from the school -- officially.
Just because I am an international student that is here for 2 months (meaning I would need 2 haircuts) does not entitle me to the student discount? Kiss my ass guy.
I get a student discount at the train and the movies with this ID.
I payed the amount he asked for, and even tipped because I liked my barber. I feel ripped off and lied to. The Men's Hair Salon just down the street would respect my Student ID.
