Al Murray the barber

I got my summer holiday haircut last night. I went to a local barber in Leadenhall Market, I don’t have time to get it cut in Tonbridge. I've been there a few times before but try not to as it’s £19, almost double the price back in Tonbridge. And with my hair cut there’s very little difference between the two.

“What can I do for you sir?”
“A number two round the back and sides and trim it up on top”
“Certainly sir, how would you like the back? Tapered or straight”
“Not bothered, which ever is quickest.”


This barber looked, sounded and acted just like Al Murray the pub landlord.

Was it worth the extra £9? Probably not…

  1. Things are changing: wherever I go for a haircut these days the barbers all sound like mechanics, awight mate! I took my car to a local garage the other day for some MOT work and it was like going to a hairdressing salon: The place was spotless, they were all young spotless and tidy and wearing latex gloves and "what can we do for you sir?" and "we'll just pop it on the ramp and have a look sir".
