My hair is styled like this now
Yikes! Spikes! Don't ask me how
My regular stylist is away
They told me he's on long holiday


So I went to this new barber
He looked to me like a foreignor
He spoke some kind of English
Which sounded to me Portuguese


How the story ended you now know
It is on my head on show
Story's moral is, do not go
To a barber you don't know

If you've got a hairstyle like David of the Alleycats
Its time for you to shop for some hats
I'd rather go to my regular barber
And use a shampoo to make my hair fluffier.

Joe, I wonder whether it is the same in Ipoh. I noticed that many Indian barbershops in Penang are manned by Indians who appear to be complete foreignors and they can't speak English or Malay. The local Indians can understand Malay at least. I gave these shops a couple of tries because they charge only RM5 or RM7 for a haircut. My regular hairdresser in Penang charges me RM45 and the price keeps going up.

Conversation in one of Indian barber shops manned by foreiners who can't speak English or Malay:


Customer: "Berapa harga?"
Foreigner Barber: "Saya India mari."
Customer: "Bila boleh siap?"
Foreigner Barber: "Tujuh Ringgit."
Customer: "Jangan potong pendek-pendek."
Foreigner Barber: "Saya baru sampai."

For guys who are not happy with those foreigners manned Indian Barber shops, may be you can try to have your hair cut at "Quick Cut"; "Kwik Cut"; "Quickie". They are chained hair cut shops and are mushrooming in the shopping complex.


The advantages of having your hair cut there are:
1. Comfort and air-conditioned since they are in shopping complex;
2. No dirty and unhygienic towels;
3. No unbearable b.o. (pardon me!)
4. Your hair is cut by trained hair stylist;
5. No communication problems;
6. The price is standard - between RM12.00 to RM13.00 and
7. They are unisex (so your the other half can have her hair cut there too).


But do not expect to have hair wash; hair tint; hair treatment; hair perm or mini facials here. After all, do guys need all these??

Hi Kayes,
I think they charge the same here too. Not too sure as I haven't been to a barber for decades. Liz has been doing my hair and I'm pretty pleased with it.
