Newsletter editorial, Apr '14: A bit off the top

Postby Dave » Wed 30 Apr 2014 11:45 GMT

This month's newsletter editorial was all about barbers.

How do you feel about them? Perhaps you had a traumatic experience as a boy involving a No.2 clipper and a tub of Brylcreem and have never been able to cross the threshold of a barber's saloon since? Or maybe you like the quiet companionship of sitting with your fellow men, doing the Mirror crossword and picking your winners for the afternoon's racing while you sit quietly awaiting your turn in the chair?

Anyway, if you've got anything to say about barbers, why not share it with us? We'd love to hear it! :)

Don't have to bother any more, not enough on top so I just trim the sides with an electric trimmer. Likely saves me a few bucks each month too. :D

An elegant solution - unfortunately(?) not one that applies in my situation as I'm just going generally thinner on top rather than losing it in the classic male pattern!
