Might try that next time I'm in town. Could take the boy too, although he is still a few months short of free beer age.

If you try it, I'd be interested in your feedback in this thread - may be tempted myself as long as they don't try anything too experimental on me.
There is I think at least one place in London where you can get free haircuts by letting students loose on your head*, but I'm pretty sure they don't also give you free beer. Only in the north :smile:

* There was also, may still be, a place where you could get free dental treatment by letting students practice on you, but that may be a step too far.

standard cut for me , hides the grey a bit :smile:
I am a bit posh and go for a 1 1/2 to 2 fade on back and sides with a bit of length on top to give it a bit of style but the fringe needs to be short. Current favourite place is a Turkish barbers who do the cut, wax my noses and ears and hot towel me with some Turkish massage thrown in for the price of £15. Get either a beer or Turkish coffee included too.

thanks - would be interested in a report back on them - have also been considering something like this (a few around) - probably a far better solution than a stick-on.

I've used this type (but not this brand) in the days before I needed varifocals and could get away with bifocals, found them perfectly adequate, allowed me to read my Garmin with ease! A bit of a staff getting them on the lenses but worth the hassle in my view, for a quid a time worth the gamble!
