Out of interest what is the price (range) for a men’s scissor cut?


#22

Circa £20-25 and I think I was offered an inclusive drink for that price - but I declined on the day, so may have it wrong.

I think there is a price list on the web-site.


#23

I paid £20 and got a beer with it. But that was on a Thursday when they often offer a special. That week a free drink and small discount. They announce these on their Twitter page.

But I think they are keen to build up their business and are offer a few niceties anyways. My first visit I got a short Indian head massage. I love those but not quite before a hair cut do next time I politely declined.

First cut with Chris two weeks ago following a succesful first visit in March. Have to say, prefered Chris - cool guy to chat to as well.

The whole set up is great and couldn’t reccomend more. Surprised they don’t advertise more - esp as they stay open late to suit those who work in town coming back for a trim.


#25

As promised, took myself in there and was very impressed. Beard sorted, hair chopped, nice fellas and a decent price considering what they had to deal with, I was in there over an hour being tidied up.

Will certainly return.


#26

Went for a cut and a beard taming last night: wonderful service, Chris took real care, attention and pride in his work, and it was surprisingly reasonably priced. Great to have a decent rival to Rocket on the old doorstep.

Just had my first cut in Smoddy Sharp. Rohan was an absolute gent and the whole experience was a pleasure. Impressive job on the shop refurb too. This is a business that really deserves to succeed.


#28

What treatment do they offer for ears? The barbers who offer wax and/or flame get my business.


#29

I didn’t have any ear treatments so I couldn’t say I’m afraid

You must be too young, @ChrisBeach. My OH tells me it’s a watershed moment when the Barber first asks if you want your ears done. All downhill from there.


#31

Not forgetting nasal hair.

Just as well we are not discussing lady’s secrets too.


#32

First time my ears were done was at Jack the Clipper, a traditional Turkish barber in Shepherd’s market. I thought I was about to become a victim in a Victorian operetta.


#33

Maybe this is the moment to suggest a men’s area on the site?


#34

Well, a public denial - where no comment needs to be made - can only draw suspicion …


#35

You get your ears waxed? Mine come naturally waxed.

And I think there are easier ways to remove ear hair than setting them on fire. I usually get people to talk about me behind my back.

The barber who would get my business is the one where I leave with move hair than I went in.


#36

Not really. I recommend it. The boys in Erdis have methylated spirit flames. Avoid barbers using cigarette lighters, the flame is too hot.


#37

I tried once to replicate the ear hair removal I had experienced in the barbers with my own ciggy lighter and mirror at home.
Needless to say it did not get well and I had to get my hair cut to mask the track of the flame on the hair on my neck.


#38

Got there for a haircut - super happy with the experience. Place is smart (great renovation) and the barber was super nice and did a fantastic job - see you in a month.


#39

Sun Barbers on Brockley Rise do the ear thing. They use a metal skewer to swing a meth soaked cotton ball. Was surprised the first time as no warning was given but it was ‘an experience’.

Just like @ChrisBeach, I don’t think I needed any ear treatment!

It is my new favourite place, as cut and wash is about £12.

I will however try Smoddy’s.

First visit to Smoody Sharp today and I was thoroughly impressed. Great service and the barbers certainly know their stuff. Highly recommended and no till shock unlike certain establishments over in east Dulwich.
