I need a haircut

Recommended Posts

I hope I am not violating any TF rules here (as my post might be construed as solicitation), but I need a haircut. My usual hair stylist bailed town and I am in need. So, does anybody have any recommendations? I am willing to pay up to 800 baht (that's my limit, not what I usually pay), but I want somebody who knows what (s)he is doing. I am in central BKK - anywhere the BTS is going is fine.

I am a difficult customer - some call me anal (and that's not a sexual reference, for the jokers amongst you). But I want somebody with decent English so I can explain what I want and somebody who takes his/her time.

Any good suggestions / or hairstylists here?

A haircut costs usually 150 Baht in BKK. What would you like to include for the other 650 until you'll reach your limit? :lol:

EB, isnt that the same guy you were meant to meet on a TF event (he was supposed to turn up there in uniform)?

He showed up... Halloween 2008 - in uniform.

His name's Ralf and he's a cool guy.

And his hair is spectacular. (He's not the guy in the middle)

I know what I'm doing (most of the time)

I handle difficult customer well.

I speak "decent" English (and can pretend with French)

I don't live in central BKK, but that isn't a problem. I have passport, willing to travel.

800 Bth, that wasn't many but if you are handsom. I do it for free (it's a low season, you know).

Just came out of Pargon: haircut 700-1200 baht. Under which rock do you live?

The problem with the local 150 baht hair salons is that my Thai doesn't measure up to explain what I want.... Not that the Paragon girls speak any better English.

Your left out the most important skill in your sales pitch, though: can you actually cut hair?

Not that I am particularly handsome, but the idea would be to be more handsome after your treatment - so, it's part your responsibility.

Thanks for the offer, Rob. And congrats on the family addition. Did not know they build the BTS out that far.

They are building the station right outside of my house!

But can you wait 5 years for a haircut?

And digi...Jeab was trying an experimental hair cutting method "cut by fire."

Things are now back to "normal".
