The one serving me had lots of tattoos (as did every barber), big black earings (the ones that leave gaping holes), and her face kept twitching as she cut my hair which showed me she was nervous and had no experience.
She asked me what I wanted, I told her exactly how I wanted my hair cut. She did not follow directions.
My hair was uneven, she didn't lower my ears like I asked, the back was uneven from feeling it, didn't line up my beard properly, and she didn't put a mirror in the back of my head probably for good reason.
They don't know the difference between a medium fade & a high fade, they also act as if they're trying to be artistic when cutting hair so they can grab as much money as possible from you.
I wanted something that should have been their buzz price, but they charged me the $21 special cut price. These 'cool/trendy/uphip' places w/ all the tattoos and pictures on the walls... ya, stay away from these places. They'll act like they're professional, but they'll always be low quality and charge you an arm & a leg in this economy.
I ended up going back to my house and fixing up the errors w/ my beard trimmer... which were quite a few.
Pros: Only if you like punk/rocker attire.
Cons: Unprofessional & Doesn't Listen
