The BEST haircut I ever had was from a barbershop on the Viale de Lavoro in Ciampino, a quite close suburb of Rome. All communication was done using hand gestures! He didn't speak English and my Italian sucked then.

Always been bad at the jargon... I walked in one day and said “just an 8 thank you” sure enough they just shaved my entire head

Several years ago I realized that you talk to barbers the same way you talk to mechanics. Don't. You're a man, you can do it yourself. My hair looks good and my bike runs great.
Barber: "so what do you think?" Me: "looks perfect!" Also me: *it will grow back fast before anyone notices it right?*

You forgot to mention about prize! If a barber is agreeable with all such requests, it is an expensive one.

I've been a barber for almost 40 years and moved into a town that hadn't had a barber in about 20 years and they were all going to beauty shops. None of the men knew what to ask for and all of them were afraid of being misunderstood. I've done well.

How would a barber feel about a woman coming in to get a cut when she knows exactly what she wanst and has had men's length hair before

You don’t talk to the barber ever, you point at a picture and then answer debit when he asks “credit or debit?”

Just say what do you think will look good. Just go with what the barber says. Simple and works, cuts out the bullshit and shuts the barber up until he’s paid.

Some barbers are retarded. I had an old Vietnamese lady that could do all hair cuts. She got old but she was one a kind. Didn't get offended when trying to explain what you want. Some of these young guys talk too much and have a bad attitude. Clipper over comb is technique is now rare.

I've tried all your advice but the Chinese lady at the 5 dollar haircut place downtown doesn't understand a word I'm saying, I don't think she even knows what an inch is, and im always walking out of there with a random haircut... oh well

Cyber Cactus (1 month ago)
Often my barber is quite reluctant to cut off a lot of my hair even when I say I want it really short on top, to the point where even after asking for it shorter 2-3 times it's still longer than I asked for, and at that point I get too awkward to keep saying 'yeah shorter' because it feels like wasting their time

K (1 month ago)
My barber cuts the sides first, and it looks really good at first. I start gaining confidence and I trust the barber. Then when he goes to the top, he cuts it either too short, or just keeps it too long, then blends it in with the side roughly or just too smooth so it looks like a bowl cut lol. I hate that lol
