Can we get a wiki with private barbers and prices? Sorry but a 10 minute haircut at a rate of $150 an hour is simply obscene. There is a s no reason in the world the job should command the compensation of someone with a medical school degree.

I don't know but that sounds a whole lot more reasonable than $30 even if they do a less perfect job.

It's nuts. Caplan downsized his shop and went up to $30.

Which other barbers are in on this?
what are prices by non Jewish barber shops?

I bought the Wahl $22 clippers from DDMS and started giving my kids haircuts myself. It took a few times to become good at it, but I don't think my kids knew the difference to much. (I practiced on the ones that were young enough to not really care until I got good at it, which took surprisingly quick.) Now I save myself $100s of dollars a year from it.

Just checked, now $35. But don't wait and think you'll save 15 or 20 by waiting. Every haircut will save you more than that.

Lol, most of the Jewish shops now charge ~$10 more for child under 3, and there, children are cheaper.

Real question is if you can really make $150 an hour off the books why aren’t we seeing a flood of guys doing it? The barrier to entry is really fairly low.

guys im giving haircuts every second Friday,
no experience yet but introductory price $20 a head
likes are not considered as a form of payment sorry
we also dont take any responsibility on the outcome, past experience doesn't predict future results
all the best, ~YesItsMe

we are working on a haircut robot that does haircuts for you according to your preset preferences



we prefer if possible to come with your chavrusashaft from morning and night and pay the full 150 and make the cheshbonos between yourselves

On a serious note, I will never forget going to the Skulener Rebbe zt"l as a child and he told me (and basically every other boy who came with me, as we were all Litfish) that we should cut off our chups (=in our case, bangs) and we should start wearing bigger yarmulkas.
