Any traditional barber shops in Poznan or Wroclaw?

Does anyone know of any traditional barbershops around any of these two cities? I just moved from the US and am looking for a barber, or wherever, that can cut a clean pompadour or at least close to it. I've looked around Google, and found some barbers set up in hotels. Any word on these or similar?

See, I would help you here...but I go for 12zl haircuts in the nearest hairdresser (two seconds walk...) and don't have any problems - in fact, it's much better than the same haircut in the UK.

I think there might be a barber in the Novotel, though don't quote me on this - I have a vague memory of such a thing. It might be worth asking in the hotels in question though - and for some reason, I wouldn't be surprised if there was a proper barber in Stary Browar.

But...what's a pompadour? :s

I'm going to have to visit the Novotel soon. Thanks for your help!

Oh, and a pompadour is a style of haircut that is sort of a 50's type. There's a bunch of different looking kinds. They range from the big kind, like those seen in the film Grease or Elvis', and then there are those not so huge. They're more clean cut.

I got my first pompadour this past November. It was more of a dare to myself to get one only because my wife moved over here to Poznan two months before I did. I don't think she would've approved if she was still there.

My barber did a better job than what I expected though. I thought I was going to get out of there looking like a 50's hot rod greaser racing type of guy. Which I would've liked too of course, but he made it look clean cut and professional looking, but cool. To find out what they look like, visit My barber's actually on there under the Barbershop link too. He's under Galveston, Texas (Manny's).

Ok, I'd have to admit, this is the longest I've ever talked about hair. I'm off to find a barber. Thanks again for your advice!
