I wandered into Jim's one afternoon to get a simple hair cut in preparation for a business trip I had the upcoming Thursday. Jim's looked appealing since it had that old style barber shop look and feel (one of the few barber shops with the rotating swirly thing outside the door).
I was helped immediately since there was no one else in the shop. I briefly described the hair cut I wanted and the barber quickly went to work.
Usually when you get your hair cut you are sitting in front of a mirror. Jim's has mirrors but for some odd reason I was facing the other way. I was kind of freaked out by not seeing what he was doing and seeing piles of hair violently dropping to the floor. I then relaxed and enjoyed some idle conversation trusting that this man was a professional and he knew what he was doing. I have straight black hair and most barbers that do not have a skilled hand with the clippers can become overzealous and the results can be very noticeable.
After 10 min of clipping and cutting, I was released from the chair to find out that my hair was cut exactly as I wanted it.
Not a bad deal for a $13 hair cut.
