There are 4 barber shops around my area, one Chinese, one Indian and two Malay. The Chinese and the two Malay shops charge $8 for adults. I don't know about the Indian. Now I stick to one of the Malay shops. Usually there are two barbers in the shop, but sometimes got three.
I cut hair about once every two months, so the total bill for one year is merely $50. You know why got $2 extra, right?
I think my hair is easy to cut and my head is not very big, so they usually finished the job fast.
I read Victor's post about his haircut (link on the right - Taking up the challenge). His cost only $2.80 and included wash and blow and got receipt somemore. The receipt below is from his blog. From the list of shops in the receipt, the nearest for me is at Bendemeer.
