    Maybe your barner should re-invent his trade, there is one spot of the human body that rarely see sunlight, and that is where luxurious 'grass' grow. Barber should do "grass" trimming or removal or even be creative, trim the "grass" to make patterns or shapes.

    Young generation dont go barber shop. They will laugh by their peer no class.
    Worst to worst go for $10 cut.
    Many Y gen will color their hair barber and $10 shop dont provide such service.

    LOL ! No hair to cut?!
    our body grows hair everywhere
    maybe the barber can choose to cut somewhere, not necessary the head

    Since no more hair, How about the idea of a pubic hair saloon?

    nowadays cut hair very cheap. many neighborhood salons are charging just $3-5 for a cut ( male/female ).

    The key word is salon. They're not barber shops. Sometimes we just want to go to a real barber shop - a man's sanctuary offering men's haircuts and a shave instead of a poor man's version of a Jean Yip unisex salon.

    Those cheap (less than $5) haircut joints make their money from the female customers doing perming, hair coloring. The quality of the haircut is not guaranteed, and service is usually lousy or mediocre. Just like other franchise shops, you won't get the same barber who clearly understands what you want. The person who cuts your hair at these 'fast food haircut shops' is usually a minimum wage, 12-hour shift jiuhu kia or PRC auntie.

    They are destroying the business of traditional barber shops.

    Students go instant $10 cuts.
    Working class go salons.
    Teeko uncles go mei taiwan.
    No one visits barber anymore.

    I haven't visited a salon or barbershop for more than a year now. I let my hair grow naturally and tie a ponytail. I shave my stubbles and trim my sideburns myself.

    Haven't had a local haircut for 10+ years. I usually get a haircut when I'm away in Indonesia , Malaysia or LOS where it's more convenient.
    I used to go to a popular Malay place at race course. Was in the area recently & found out that some of them have passed away, retired,...the place has now downsized & didn't see a queue like in the old, old days. The days of the Malay barbers are numbered.
