Default Men's hairdresser capable of cutting to style recommendations please

Can anyone recommend a men's hairdresser in the Marina area. My hair is a good 17cm long and as much as I've had fun with it being long, it's time for it to be cut.

I have a few shorter (but not short) styles in mind, but I have a phobia about people screwing my hair up. Does anyone have any recommendations for a men's hairdresser (or maybe even woman's hairdresser who would be willing to cut a man's hair) who is capable of cutting hair to style well.

I don't mind the cost. I'm more than happy to pay a couple of hundred Ds to make sure it doesn't get screwed up.

I used to have very long hair and know a good barber in Jumeirah who can probably help. If you'd his details I'd be happy to pass them onto you over the PM (Don't want to put out business or personal details over the forums).

I tip him an extra 5aed cause he gives extra's on a Thursday.

Haha. It's the latter. I have a phobia of people who I don't trust cutting my hair. I've had some truly atrocious haircuts in the past.

Anyway, the deed is done.
