Any sound barbers that will cut short hair on females?

    Hi all..

    I'm just after moving to the city and need to find a barbers that is fine about cutting short hair on a female. It's a generic dry cut.

    My family home is in Wicklow and I've moved from Dublin and over the years in both places I've struggled to find barbers without having to go through sneering and snide remarks.. not to mention being patronized and (being charged more than the dry cut actually costs because of my gender ) I kid you not!

    In the end I've always found someone but I'd rather avoid going through all that again if I can so if anyone could recommend a good barbers in the city that will take no issue with doing a dry cut on a female that would be greatly appreciated :)

    Thanks all in advance..

    Try crew on shop street, they seem like a nice bunch

    Try Kozzies. They have loads of female barbers, so it'll be a lot more pleasant than a place full of auld lads. They are in Galway shopping centre and Joyces in knocknacarra. I think they have another place in town but I can't remember where

    If you're in the south of the city try Headmasters in Doughuicse over Jack Jordans it's a barbers that I use and a number of girls come into have the side of there head trimmed down and some have the tribal designs inserted.

    + 1 for Crew barbers, I usually go to the barbers chair down near the garda station. Simple good cut and no chit chat..

    Haha, sometimes no chit chat at a barbers is a wonderful thing ;)

    There's sometimes nothing worse than a barber that tries to make forced awkward chitchat with you.

    Another +1 for The Crew. Get my undercut maintained in there and they're so lovely too, they made no fuss at all over me being a woman :)

    I got the worst cut of my life in Crew at the weekend. My normal barber was way too busy & I was in a rush, so I went there.

    I had a top knot going in, the barber/hairdresser obviously did not listen to me, and proceeded to cut off way too much hair and let's just so I no longer have one.

    I think she knew she messed up as she never even showed me the haircut with a mirror or asked me what I thought of it.

    I nipped in there a few days ago just to speak to them and didn't like the vibe I got..

    Since then I sent a message to Fat Tonys (there seems to be a couple of them around) the guy who replied seemed really nice so I'm probably gonna try there first.. also some pics of cuts they do look really good.
