If I go for some hair-cut, I prefer hair salons, simply because they are easier to reach for me with my car. I however avoid barbers since I have yet to meet a barber who will show due respect towards my long hair. Any visit to a Polish barber resulted in loss of one-year of patient hair growing... Now I prefer keeping my hair unkempt with occasional trimming it myself ;-)

Noooo. This is absolutly uncommon. Hairs link every Pole to his ancestors and cutting them would be betrayal of their homeland and forefathers. Instead of cutting hair, Poles just wait for senility when they get bold.

WHAT a stupid question!

Why stupid? He asked what is the common choice: a barber shop OR a hair salon. Makes sense.

I have never been to a barber shop in the five years i have been in Poland , usually go to salons where they can cope with long hair....

Do they have barbers shops in Poland....? there are not that many Polish guys with any hair....

I think very few barber shops have survived. There is no single barber shop in the two little neighbouring towns where I live. You can however find small hair salons targeted at women. It is so easy for me to jump into my car and drive some 16 km to the next shopping centre where hair salons can be found...

Wildrover, I do not think most of Polish men are bald. They just crop their hair.

The genotype makes many men here get bald since they are in their thirties, true. Still you find so many young men cropping they hair just for style. On contrary, many heavy-metal followers are long haired and as long as the Nature lets them, they maintain long hair.

See, I'm fifty and am proud of my long hair... "I won't hesitate to use them" ;-) My close pal is 49, still has all hair on, yet he's been shaving his hair since he was 16.

Peszek.
Bad luck ;-)

And yes, there are barber shops in Poland and men visit them.

These are in the centres of larger towns, big cities, right?

Not really, I come from a small town (23k or so inhabitants) and there are 4 or 5 of them (plus much more female hair salons).

OK. Good to know.

One of the neighboring towns is 3K, the other 10K. Two hair salons in total. Big number of pharmacies, though, at least 5, many more in the borough :D

Hair salons are boring. "Balwierz" is the place to go.
