It's been a while since I visited Tony and the team at Mo Hair, but with Commonwealth Games looming I'm looking for a new look and this is the place I'm coming to!
I first met Tony, the owner and personification of this place, many years ago next door at 13th Note; which incidentally is where I hang out after my appointments.
The atmosphere and banter at Mo Hair is one of the reasons I keep coming back. That and I trust their opinion on what to do with the hedge that grows atop my head. Granted it's not the cheapest haircut I've had at £25 but it's worth every penny and more - especially if you're looking for something new!
They have an awesome music collection and the graffiti style decor is cool and modern and adds to the general feel of the place. The last time I visited there was a cute dog and Tony's young daughters were also paying a visit.
So, next on my list is to book an appt to come have the hair shaped and styled - I wonder if they'll be able to colour my hair Pillarbox Red to match my Games outfit? Time to find out (pics will follow once the deed is done in a few weeks time).
**update** have tweeted to guys to ask their opinion on an awesome, stand out, maybe red, style for the Commonwealth Games - let's see what magic they can work
Started going here after speaking to them at the Citizen M event back in 2012 and haven't regretted it. Had my hair cut here 4 times now, and the experience each time has been brilliant. Three of these cuts have been with different hairdressers, and it's good to know that the quality is consistent throughout the place.
It's gone through a wee revamp this week which has opened the space up a little bit; this was much needed as there isn't a lot of spare room, and as a result rocking up and expecting a cut here and then might be a bit optimistic. Everything and everyone is pretty chilled out, and they certainly love their music; Otis Redding this time, and LCD Soundsystem at a fairly tasty volume was a previous highlight.
Most importantly, I've been given great haircuts, and the guys know what they doing well enough to convert my "I don't know what I want to do with my hair" mumbles into something that looks great. Importantly the cuts still look good a few weeks later, which is always a good sign. They have a loyalty card as well, which is a nice wee bonus. Price-wise, at £22.50 it's a bit more expensive than a number 2 on the top and a 1 on the sides, but it's also significantly cheaper than some of the higher end places I've been to in the past, and of definite higher quality. Highly recommended.
An update? Aye, why not. When a business blows yer socks off on the first visit, it's great to get the tippy tappy finger going and lay down the love on this here Yelp type thing. But that's just one visit. Did they fluke it? Were you feeling generous that day?
Well, three visits down I'm 100% certain that the cut and service I received on my first visit, is what these guys roll out on a regular basis. I've been working on a style for a few months now and my hairs just become long enough to sit just about right. The good thing about this, is that Tony (the owner and all around dude), let me know when I first got the cut, that it was a work in progress and that we'd just stick with it until everything sat right. We did (stick with it) it does (sit right), I'm happy (no need for this text).
This place, like many other top notch businesses in Glasgow, manages to combine passion with product and all with a smile and a laugh included. Sold.
I've been going to this gents only hairdressers for a while now, after spending a few years compromising my masculinity at a fancy dan salon, squandering £40 a time on a trim.
If you ask for Tony, you'll get any hair cut you want, good chat and usually a free beer to boot. You've also got the best selection of light reading for when you're waiting, including old issues of Tales From The Crypt.
Reasonable price too at around the £20 mark. Excellent.
Mo Hair is an excellent place for a haircut, much better than just going to the local barbers. Tony is an excellent hair stylist and gets my hair just right every time. Mo Hair has salon quality but doesnt feel fruity, its actually quite a relaxing and its good to sit and read the Wolverine comics while you wait.
I recommend Mo Hair to all my freinds and I have truthfully turned down free haircuts elsewhere to get my hair cut at Mo Hair. If you are in Glasgow and looking for a great mens hair style then try Mo Hair.

I had my first visit last week and was quietly impressed at the detail and time taken over my short hair. I had a wedding to attend and so needed more than my usual number 2 all over job, and Mitchell the Canadian barber done a great job.
Even got a show as there was a scirmage outside the shop as 2 junkies were in battle with council road workers stealing their broom and running riot down the street.
And maybe this is why I got a slight discount on my haircut and beard trim but who knows but I`m glad of it as times are tough and every penny counts.
Anyhow to re cap, make an appointment and see for yourself the quality haircut you will receive.
Antonio Destra (Tony the Hair) gives me body mods no tattoo artist or piercing parlour could hope to offer. My only sorrow is my hair doesn't grow quickly enough, and what there is is vanishing, leaving Tony with a smaller canvas for his art. And only Tony could have a shop that feels like he elbowed the space out from between two pubs. Next refurb must be a service hatch for a beer from Laurie's. :-)
The price is really good here (£20) and he actually listens to what you want!. Far, far better than the local barbers.

Established in 2004.
Mo hair started eight years ago as there was a definate niche in the market for something different. The idea was to create an inner oasis where our customers could sit back, enjoy great music, good banter and feel like part of the family. Customers have been coming back ever since and we have an army of loyal fans. No one day is ever the same as we have an ecclectic mix of clientel who love to change up thier style. Some fantastic charachters grace us with thier presence in the shop and we love it. Tony has just been given the honour of being awarded Men's stylist of the year 2012.
I started Mo hair in 2004 with a clear idea of the needs of men's hair. After studying ladies and gents hairstyling over the last 18 years I have developed a style focusing on the individual needs of my clients.
For a long time I found guys hair styles to be run of the mill and dare I say boring. Now a trip to the barbers for a short back and sides simply isn't enough. Hairstyles are changing constantly and instead of fading away, they are now redeveloped and merged with classic and contemporary styles.
"Now" is a time for evolution and is the most creative period I have experienced in my career.
