BP,
HOw much is it in First Choice hair cut? and does the charge include Shampoo too?
Even in Philipinoe / Pakisthani hair cutting saloon, you just have to see if there is a chair free or not. Unless you have a very particular skilled way of your hair to be cut, it does not matter to which barber shop you go to.,

My burka wali saloon lady (beautiful kashmiri) chgs me $25 for hair cut/shampoo/hair setting. I m sure mcg wud be interested in getting his haircut by her soft chubby hands but the only problem is her husband (6 ft tall 200 pounds weight ) works with her in the saloon and I m certain that his hands are not as soft as her. :) Do u want her address n phone no. Mcg and FP?;-)

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.

Murali.



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 ;)

I am not sure but they do have 2 children a teenager and 2 yrs old lovely child. :) so the gay part is out. for that matter, I was wondering why qualified people have to come to Canada/USA or western countries to become a barber or a waiter.??

Simple economics.

Who cares, HW. I am happy with my Indian stylist for a cheapo and quality $10 cut. Also, not that brand conscious, you know.

By the way, you mentioned her hubby as if he has to veto the customers before they head to her. If yes, then it's a really bad business practice. I am sure they would close down real soon!

1. He came out of closet after his 2 children, as he grew delusional. You should've known better.

2. Qualified people and Barbers/Waiters: Not as easy to explain, but let me try in few words. Part of the blame goes to the Govt., then to the individual, and their financial /person situation. Just because you immigrated with 'monies', doesn't mean everyone else does too. And, please don't give me those 'high-fi' motivational quotes. Timing doesn't work for quite a number of people. Real life's a b!+Ch for some. Really!

Ciao!
