What stylist or facility gives the best and most consistent male haircuts in Austin for under $30? Names or places would be helpful, I've gotten tired and disgruntled playing Great Clips roulette. I understand this is purely subjective, don't waste a post telling me so.

I have been letting my haircuts go too long because I have been having trouble finding a good stylist, too. I found someone decent at a salon in Cedar Park for $35 but I would consider it a good $20 hair cut so I probably won't go back. Thinking of just shaving my head.

Bee Caves Barber Shop on Bee Cave Rd. Less than $20 for a good hair cut. It's just one guy so you have to wait if it's a busy time. Closed Sunday & Monday, I think.

If you can make it there during working hours on weekdays or on Saturday mornings and you're willing to wait a bit at times, then the Wooten might be what you're looking for.

I cut my hair myself using my bathroom mirror and a hand held mirror. I just cut my hair with a #1 all the way around.

The past few years I have done it for a few months to half the year each year with no guard once a week. It certainly is much cheaper and easier than getting a hair cut and worrying about styling it before leaving the house.

Exactly! I can cut my hair at 2:00 am if that's when I have time for it.

Same here!*

The first three or four times took nearly 20 minutes because I needed to get used to moving the clipper in the right direction while looking at the mirror, plus I didn't want to jab myself. But eventually it only took me 7-8 minutes to do it. Though it is still kind of tricky trimming the back on my neck with a razor & getting that line straight and my three-bladed Schick doesn't help.

I used to have my hair cut twice a month - now I do it whenever I want and except for the one-time $25 cost of the clipper, it's free!



* before I finally admitted my thinning hair (on top/front) looked like crap, a few years ago I used to get my hair cut at a local beauty shop for just $6.00. Looked fine to me but then again I got a simple fade cut i.e. short on the sides/thick on top so maybe it would have been more costly for a more fancy hairdo
