Default Mens Haircut - Dubai Marina

People,

Hello to you all, I am new in Dubai (from London) and have been to the same haridresser for the past 15 years. Im now in need of a desperate haircut but have no idea who is good. I have seen Franck Provst in Marina, again dont know what they are like.

Any feedback or tips would be greatly appreciated. I generally like to keep my hair short and messy, cut into not straight with scissors.

Please help me....

ahh, listen only gay men and dare i say it lebo's visit *hairdressers*

take the geordie and sheepshaggers advice..visit your local indian chap and get him to remove all hair for 10Dirhams. He will give you a lovely head massage also. And remove the hairs from your nose and ears..

and Zico, if you ask him nicely he'll give you a brazillian...

you will find them near the spinneys in the springs/meadows. Orange T-shirts.

Next to Shakespears...actually they are quite good. Around 60dirhams i think.

you have a few on the JBR Walk including the one with 'orange' guys in the Al Fattan towers (two buildings across Oasis Beach hotel - that building which is being demolished). You can also get waxed, manicured, pedicured and any other things you want.

There is a very good Iranian-run mens hairdresser/barber on Marsa Walk (i.e., the dual cariageway road between Dubai Marina towers and those of the JBR.

The place is called "Caractere" (04 4370 160 ask for Hassan...though all the staff are all well trained) and it is located at the back of Amwaj building (towards the marina). Open form 10 am til 10 pm.

try , Ibn Battuta mall, take the GEANT car park and as you enter its on the right.

Also there is a hairdressers in Dubai Internet City, below the siemens building.

Both are ok, priced at 60 AED.

t'was a joke.

Thanks for the advice, but one more thing, does anyone know if these recommended barbers are used to cutting European styles? Or is it a straight "short back and sides"?
