london area is a broad term lol but round my area there lots of turkish ones that are reasonably priced, 10-12£ a cut, avoid any hairdressers thats does 5£ cuts and you should be fine, also if you want to get that haircut because beckham so it's popular I wouldn't bother, beckham hasn't been relevant in years no one cares what he does anymore

Fire, that's some serious haircutting.

My dad has this funny story of when he was a kid getting his haircut. The person doing it was smoking and they told him "Now don't scream if I get ashes in your eyes". :lol:

yeah when I saw him dip the cotton ball in alcohol then light it up I was wandering what the hell he was doing :lol: but he knew his job well and did a great job, turks can be kind of crazy that way though I guess

Nine Dragons. The place i was looking at had a wash cut and finish with scalp massage for 26 pounds. theres a 10 percent student discount n i think its pretty close to me. seems a bit pricey though

yeah 39$ is expensive for a haircut, this place is only 12£ and they even wrap a warm towel around your head, you can get a bus from your area straight there as well, I can recommend 2 in my area which are good

if you start thinking like that in London you'll run out of money very fast :lol: here's my second favorite place, they're 10£ for a cut and after you can get a meal at one of the many restaurants on that street, all are affordable and really nice, personally I would recommend "café Z" both would come up to about 15-18£ together so you would get to travel London, eat out and get a haircut for 10£ less than just a haircut locally, it's only 30mins away from you on the bus as well

I have a slight question to my fellow Brits in regards to this tutorial I'm working on which focuses on British stand up comedians & how they push moral boundaries through their comedy material. I also wrote that their comedic material is reflective of contemporary British culture. Would you guys give me some insight on whether or not this is true, and perhaps the kinds of comedians that reflect this thesis? I thought I'd use comedians that are pretty popular in the UK Gervais Minchin and Izzard, but if you can give me some other ones that might be better then I would appreciate it. General Information and wisdom can help too as to how I should build on this thesis
