finding a female barber

Post by Roadie » Sun Dec 09, 2018 7:53 pm

I've tryed a few times to get a haircut by a woman but every time I think its all set, there are only women working in here. Then next thing I know in walks a man from out the back. Bugger. I'll let a man cut my hair if I'm desperate for a cut but I'm not that desperate yet. I'd much rather have a woman running her fingers through my hair thanks all the same. Does anyone know one?

In case it helps, in Cambodia (possibly unlike some other countries) it's easy to find a man barber who is not gay. He won't run his fingers through your hair.

Men cut hair and the women style it here.

Near the junction to street 118 and 15, if I remember correctly. But about twice the price of the other male run outfits, locally

Getting your hair cut by a man is not gay. It's not like you're sitting next to him in a tuk tuk.

I think Ego Hair Salon can hook you up.

But in the interest of transparency and full disclosure, potential customers can't be 'grandads', or 'young Khmer girls', or 'young Khmer grandads', or something like that....or you'll be told to fuck off.

Thanks for the tips. I know the male barbers aren't gay but I've had my hair cut by woman all my life why would I want to change if I have a choice.

The Vine on 172 is run by an Aussie couple. She cuts hair and he works the bar.
