Haircut?

Kind of trivial question but any tips on getting a (mens) haircut in Bangkok? (will be in Silom district)

I pay B 50 ( $1.25 ) and it's great, I usuallu add another B 20 tip, if you are looking for a good haircut Thailand is the place, they are excellent, any local barber just B 50 for a straight no messing haircut, if you want wash and style maybe up to B 200 ( $5 )

Thanks Bob and James. The local cut is what I usually go for when I'm on holiday. Can be a bit of a challenge getting the message across but that's just part of the fun. Up until now Turkish haircuts are the best I've had but we'll see what Bangkok comes up with.

sid---i can't seem to choose the correct words for you: "market or mall"; "clean or dirty", i.e. like diseased...aids, vd, you name it...why do you think that barbers, hairdressers and manicurists are regulated in many countries???

all smalley wants to do is have his/her hair cut...just an advisory and common sense...

yes sid you have managed to make me mad...

Just reporting back that I ended up at a little salon in a side street just off Silom Road, it think it was Soi Sala Daeng. Paid 200 Baht incl 50 tip.

kuranosuk didn't I advice ya not too go to MBK they love too rip of tourist.. I pay 60 baht...

rhknk if you can catch VD from the hairstylist you must be going too the salons on lower sukunvit where the girls who dress like prostituts and posibly practice that trade as well.

orgy; i think i had one too many changs when you told me that, as i don't remember your warning.

take me to your barber next time, but i don't want your hairstyle. i don't think thai punk would look good on me. .
