Any business that is easy to do has already been taken over by other immigrants.

In all universities / colleges, there are students who do haircuts at $ 5 (Machine cutting). You canot get customers there.

At Dundas-Hurontario, there are many people cutting for $ 8 a cutting.

I used to cut with a Pakisthani in Dundas Huontario. It always used to be crowded (it was also a facial and eye brow spot). I paid $ 8 (in 2010) and the time spent on me was around 20 mins.

If somebody can watch how Gora's cut their hair and what their habits are, we can tap into a potential money spinning market as Gora males are not too much concerned about money. About Gori's, I am not sure, but in my office they always used to visit a hair cutter once in every 3 months and in my conversations with them, understood that there were many spots for Gori's to cut their hair.

It is a good business when you find an area which is underserved.

where you guys get so cheap haircut ?

I always pay around $30.00 (incl $5 Tip ) each month for my haircut.

it included (hair cut + shampoo after cut & combing)

May be my selection of hair dresser is different - I don't go to Pakistani's or anyone Desi for my haircut ,
I like to go to beautiful young ladies hairdressers ;)

That's it , nothing else

I think $ 24.95 total with tax + tip $5
I never saw a hairdresser charge less than $20, that's why wondered how some people find for $5 or $8 ? unless someone run cheap salon from home

I think Sardar's are lucky as most of them never require haircut due to faith....so much saving
Always wondered why they are rich - now got one clue :):)

That's sad. I would expect a bit more for $30 from these beautiful young ladies hairdressers. Anyhow! I would go to them if were at your place as well. Don't feel bad, please. You're spending for 'your' right cause :).

I pay $10 at an Indian style saloon. With tip it comes to about 12. Very happy with the cut.

Well, Sardars have also started getting their beard trimmed as well, so also have to go to Saloons, especially here in Western countries. Many of my cousins do it here as well as in India. The time it takes to tie the Pagg (turban) in the mornings and doing the beard at the same time is astonishingly high. Well, I know they get used to that. Moreover, they are hardworking, hence Rich. :)

U r crazy to pay $30+ for hair cut, Just add few more and go for massage : ) :) :) - of course with cute lady :) :)

on topic: If your heart is saying to move forward and do something better in life , then dont worry to much about risk , lose , gain ...

JUST DO IT - start small or big , just start - THERE ARE NO RULES FOR BUSINESS AND LIFE...

consider its test and you will have to graduate , one trial or many trial - finally you will be graduate.

or lease after so many years - you will regret thinking i should have done this, that bla bla bla

I failed twice , but experience i gain threw those loss gave me more confident and i can say now that i'm expert - i'm set and stable -

So if i would have not started taking risk , i would still be doing day to day job and crush my life everyday.

that being said , i will keep taking risk and not afraid of it

SO FELLAS !!! CLOSE YOUR EYES, TAKE DEEP BREATH AND JUMP INTO IT

It's hard to find a female owned relaxed salon for hair cut for less than $ 20 + tax .
I don't like waiting and sitting in queue as it's not worth my time.
- yes I never search for any desi Naaiii

reg, Massage - I am covered thru my company - I think $750/year.
Canadian ladies are very professional & talented in massage as most of them are RMT .
I use every penny of $750, sometime even more from my pocket- it's really worth man-can't describe in words:)

MCG7,
$ 5 hair cutters are in the Univ. of Toronto and Spadina area.

$ 8-$10 (no tips needed) are in the newin centre of Mississauga (Dundas Hurontario). 2010 rates.

No shampoo will be done. You have to come home and do Sampoo by yourself when you are taking bath.

What I generally do is on Sunday morning when I wake up, I go straight to the barber. Then come home and take a shampoo bath and head out. It is the same as waking up, taking shampoo bath, go to barber who will cut your hair / shampoo it and make it read for you to go out from there.

Simple economics.
