Really the place doesn't matter. It's who's doing the haircut. If you find a competent person. Let them know it's a system and that it has to be so long to cover the base, and to blend where the system meets your bio hair. It's $15 and I typically tip 75-100%... because she doesn't charge any different than any other normal haircut.
So for under 30 bucks you have a very happy stylist that will go above and beyond for you.
I considered going to a stylist that specializes in systems. They charge $50 then you throw a $10 tip on it. How are they any different? It shows me they're just praying on the market of insecure men.... A haircuts...a haircut's a haircut. Thinning shears and straight razors are used by many Stylists.
I'm sure we've all seen a bad blend job's and bad haircut's on a regular traditional hair from your head cut. Right?
