The staff at Manmade know their trade well. I myself have been to Kyle (Clement Location) many times, he's knowledgeable. He takes his time, is not rushed at all and ensures the haircut will "grow in" well to look good for more than a week or two.

Wow, thank goodness I haven’t had the need for a barber since my mid 20s.
$50+ for hair cuts and beard trim.
I don't give a damn whether people/posters like me or dislike me, I'm not on earth to win any popularity contests.

You're welcome MAPearce.

GordonH, I remember paying $18 not long ago. Great Clips offers a $22 haircut if you get the flyer... though sincerely do not recommend it.

A traditional men's (traditionally assuming "mainstream Canadians 1950-present") haircut consumes 30-40 minutes. At $42 a cut (plus tax and gratituity, and yes this is a service a tip is worth it), this brings in $546 a day per chair (assuming a 70% schedule fulfillment), or for a 3 chair place like Manmade, ≈$1,500 a day. From this, 3 people required full-time pay ≈ of $60,000/year or $230/day. What is leftover (≈$16,000/month) goes to commercial rent ($9,000/mo.) and other bills.

It's one of those services able to keep up with inflation as people don't get haircuts more than once a month, so the monthly expense isn't up much, and a large portion of our population places great value on their personal appearance.

Hopefully, the price of shelter comes down so we can continue to pay for good services.

Side note:

Julius Caesar spent a fair bit of time in camps during his campaigns fighting off dissidents who were against Roman rule. I suspect he had personal dealings with lice as he later took great care in keeping his body as clean as possible. That involved shaving off chest, back and body hair, including plucking. [ouch]

Consider that razors and tweezers were not as efficient back then, and wonder, what did he pay for his grooming bill?

You know that lice don`t like dirty hair ? ..

Anyway .. Wife likes me in a beard and I HATE them . As a compromise , I`ll have a short , clean , tight and neat one . The last time I got it done was in July in PoCo and found a shop , with a man who was trained in Iran, and he did a FANTASIC job cleaning my shaggy but up . The kid was a master .

I`d go back but he`s all the way in PoCo ..

A good haircut and trim is something we under rate these days and like you said "It`s about service"''

I was more than happy to pay the 40 and dish a generous tip .

I'll go see them .

Haha. Practice scratching with your hind leg.

Where there’s hair, especially near the piehole, there's gotta be vermin lurking

Enjoy your barbering. [icon_lol2.gif]
