Hello all
I did do a search on this but coul;dn;t find any previous threads.
Do any of you gentlemen know of a decent barber in the West Norwood/Tulse Hill area? You know, somebody who takes time with the clippers and then tidies everything up with a cut-throat razor?
I went into one of the more fashioable 'hairdressers' the other day and the girl who cut my hair looked quite frankly scared of the clippers (and didn't do a great job to be honest).
Cheers
Graham

Try the barbers up the Palace next to the picture palace opposite sainsburys. I always ask for the 1 of the brothers ( Marios or Bambos) they also have someone who does proper wet shaves if it takes your fancy.

Only a bus ride away !

Zorkot Barber - Church Rd opposite what was Gala Bingo - Lebonese - does good job at around 8 - think hes got a special offer going on over december - also throws in a bizarre flame on a stick thing which burns the small hairs around your ears - have found him more consistent than opp sainsburys as its always him you get - does all the wet shave / hot towel razzmatazz too - def worth a try - Ive been back quite a few times now

the guy who's taken over the place by Tulse Hill Station by the bus stop on the main road is good.

I've just been there and can confirm he's still very good! (It's gone up to 9 though...!)
