I got my hair cut here every month for twelve years. Never had a major problem, and I'm really sad they're gone.

Worst hair cut ever. Hopefully I'll heal before my next one.

This was definitely the worst haircut I ever got. I went in and asked for a dark caesar. Its pretty much a standard haircut but the barber didn't even know what a dark caesar was and barely understood english. After some of the other people working in the shop explained to him what I wanted, I sat down for the cut and while doing my hairline the barber begins to dig into my scalp trimming any area where there was no hair. He cut me on boths sides of my head. When the haircut was done, we had to get another barber to fix my hairline, and I still had to pay $5 for the cut. 4 days later my head is still healing and looks worse than the day I got the hair cut. This was my worst experience ever with a barber shop in my life.
