Berkeley Hair Chop
May 3, 2006 10:18 PM   Subscribe

Male in need of a good hair stylist near the UC Berkeley campus, much preferably within walking distance. $30 max. No barber shops, no supercuts. Where should he go? The more specific, the better.

I don't often get my hair cut (every 3 months), so I am very picky. Going for the young, stylish yet professional look. Opposite of the greasy stripped-shirt fratboy look. That's about all.

The East Bay Express' just-out Best of the East Bay.

Daily Cal's Best of Berkeley.

It's been a while since I've been in Berkeley, but what about the literally-underground "barbershop" in the walkway from Bancroft (where Mr. Godblessyouhaveablessedday sits) to Durant, just west of Telegraph? The guy who runs (or ran, maybe) it had a pretty good sense of style, I recall.

Otherwise--and this isn't walking distance, but it's BART accessible--check out the salons in Oakland Chinatown.

I used the underground barbershop twice. It wasn't a guy either time. They vacuumed my head after the haircut. The first haircut was OK, the second one was bad, so I quit going there.

I always went to Panache on Telegraph. The one on College is just as good, but harder to get an appointment for.

Blow on Berkeley Way has been very good to me. I pay more than $30, but I think maybe some of their younger staff charges less? Worth checking out.
