Indian barber should be cheap and accurate (place a tempurung kelapa and cut) but not sure abt style though (USJ 4, near Casablanca restaurant row).... Just kidding, Chermaine not suitable for you.... :p

Come to think of it, in the late 60's was only 50 sen a hair crop and RM1 later in 70's.
Now its RM10 and seen to rise further in future.
I've experienced a barber in USJ whose staff are Indian nationals.

Mostly done in ss19 indian barber. RM10 per and depends on who handle the job. You can come out with a coconut head or a latest dog bitten style oso . One thing is that they never forget to change the razor blades to a new one for each customer. Me.. kiasi hor..on all those razor transmittable penyakit ...
What about other barber that you visited KH..? .Do they automatically change the razor ?

Perhaps anyone can become as good a barber as the ones found in the barber shop if there are enough of guinea pigs to operate on. Buy an electric hair cutter and work on the kids first....sorry kids... Then graduate to gouge the hubby's crown :D after straightjacketed him :eek:.

Use to do that during the heydays decades ago. Probably getting a little oooomph...because scratches from the shampoo girls then is the in thing. That time was only 12rm wat in seapark.:p:

Anyone tried 5min ...or 10minutes?..cut in Giant hypermarket usj ? Rm 12 seems reasonable .

For a few years now my hair has been 'handled' by the Indian barber shop at Good year court 2, same row as the 7-11 store.... so far so good..

sometimes, after the hair cut, and shave (with new razor every time), the barber will ask if you want yoru neck 'cracked'... syokkkk....

then a bit of massage.... on the neck lah.

Word of advise .. careful wif house barber / stylist .. cos few years back, I went to this house barber .. she cut my hair as well as she accidentally snipped my ear .. din know it was bleeding till I reached home .. :eek: :mad:

Since then, I stop going to barber / stylist that operates from a house. Phobia liao ..

FYI, the lady is quite old and she can hardly see .. so most ppl that does hair cuts from house better hv a good eye sight.

Yeah, i also do my haircut at the barber shop in USJ 4 - it's quite clean and good (Rm10). Previously i have tried one indian barber shop at SS19/1 area and that too was quite good but on my 2nd visit to him, he used a pisau to shave which was i think quite blunt and i ended up getting a slight cut on my skin behind the ear (bled a little). That frightened me so much and later on thank God after doing my annual medical checkup, I finally saw that my blood is still HIV-free. Phew!...what a relief man.

The usj 4 shop uses razor blades and he changes the blade for each customer and i think all barber shops should practise this way. Maybe this should be made the SOP for all barbers...or else don't grant them the lesen to continue operations :D

Did my haircut at USJ16, half shop run by a couple with kids who hang around the shop, so far, she's the fastest haircutter/styliest in town, (don't mass with her!!) :D
Wash & cut RM30.00, open day & night except for CNY.

05-01-2006, 11:42 PM
Did you know that hair stylists charge extra during the CNY season? Maybe Orchi can tell us why. I am now reminding myself to go to the stylist barber 2 weeks before CNY so I escape paying the extra.

There is also an Indian barber in Summit. 2nd flr I think. Also Rm10.

If you want a unisex one, there is one in Goodyear Court 4, just behind Tien Tien Fatt c/shop. Amy is the boss there. Parking is free and no problem.

I go to the one next to escalator at the basement of Carrefour Subang Jaya. This one does the "dry-cut" type haircut at RM15.

Some of the barbers there are very experienced and good.

Chermaine, sorry. I don't go there but heard they are good as confirmed by so many of the forumers. I normally go to a saloon at PJ Old town, my regular shopping place. They charged me RM15 for a haircut, CNY or not. I've been there for quite a number of years now.... It's located at the left of Hong Leong finance, next to the hardware shop, on top of the pharmacy... :p

The key word here is SOME - make sure you know who are the better ones. Chosing the wrong one can make you cry after you see their art work on your head.........but since, it is for bf, ok lah....other SYTs won't look.

The one in IKANO centre is quite ok, majority of the stylists are attractive but you have less than 10 minutes to admire them. Cost is Rm12, you get the comb which they use on you to prevent lice spreading but downside, the dry cut equipment is not working.

I used to take my young son to a barber in SS 18/6. My son always cry everything he has a hair cut. So we make friend with the barber. Since we live nearby, my son recognised the barber's face. But still cry. He charged only RM7.00. Quite a no. of customer too. Especially weekend.

But now an old German guy cuts his hair here in Aussieland. Cant remember how much he charges. And my son still cry. Maybe he is just a cry baby.

Here's what i get
- A 'Hello' & guided to a reclining barber chair

- A clean,professional & stylish cut :D
- A delicate shave (hairline, sideburns, whiskers & prickly strands of psuedo beard :p with a disposable blade, of course.
- A hot towel to cover the mugface with a new hair cut, on a reclined chair
- A 3-5minutes strong & probing shoulder massage
- A 1 minute head massage/rub to get rid of the loose hair :p
-Finally, a bow and a gracious 'kharpoonkap'

i go to indian barber shop at ss14 at the first row facing the opposite banks of ss15. Charge rm10 also...Outside they sell magazines and newspaper.

Or sometime Geena hair saloon behind there ss14..near the Sukumaran's restaurant of SS14 or 7 Eleven..IF u student , Geena charge only rm8 ! And during promotion , free 1 cut if 2 cut. eg 3 fren go together , the 3rd person free.

But i prefer the indian barber shop above , since they seems to be more consistent in "cut short" and "slope"... If less people or no people , they can be quite artistic(cut nice nice and neat neat)..

While Geena somehow they scissors don work well on my head..Results not my liking...

Oh course lah...i didn't factor the travelling cost since i religiously ride there every month :D

The indian barber opposite my otherhalf's bizz (basement near eon bank, 1utama, new wing, below the stage/concourse) cuts hair for RM10.00 including a twist of the neck. The barbers are from india and the staff of 1U say they are pretty good.

There's one in USJ16.
Take Jln Usaha (from Jln Tujuan) towards Sri Melur restaurant/Caltex, Turn right after Caltex. Next to Doby shop.

RM10 for adults, RM8 for kids.
Style to choice. Good massage at back, and if you have a bad twist, tell him. He'll give you a nice crack.

I go to the one at Good Year Court 6, the last shop near the surau. It's painted orange and next to a coffee shop. The guy is a young Sri Lankan under UN something...something thingy. The shop is a hip joint with nice reggae beats and cool settings. YOu won't get the 60's tamil and hindi songs blasting away. He will cut anything from Brad Pitt to Shashi Kapoor, no need to worry. Chow Yuen Fatt is the easiest! RM 10 flat. LOok for Shan.

If you become buddies with him, you can also get duty free liquors and what have you not. Compliments from his MAS cabin crew clients!!

Tamil songs are part of the atmosphere of Indian barber shops. How can you accept reggae? What does the barber thing he is ... a Jamaican? I still remember those lazy warm late Sunday mornings in the 'ol "village" barber shop under the big Rain tree and the occasional trips the barber makes to spit the red tobacco onto the mud floor of his front yard (he is a beetle nut addict). Most times I fall asleep lulled by the Tamil songs.

for teenager and adult (who wanted very - "IN" cutting) try USJ 1 Giant, RM10 with vacuum

My favourite boy cut - Carrefour SS15 RM15 (comb sterilize) - Look for middle age Shi Fu as they will cut your hair just nice instead of cutting the style you mention and letting your hair stand the next morning.

For all the saloon, I suggest you to bring your own comb as you don't want to share your comb with others
