QUESTION: Where can a guy get a haircut in Waterloo?

BJ's was shit service and the one in the SLC has bad hours. I need a place open past 5.

  1. google gives you answers right away whereas here on omguw, you must wait for a response and often (like now, for example) the response does not help.

  2. If it is something simple, such as buzz cut, then just go to First Choice. $10 or whatever and there is one in the plaza.

  3. Waterloo is pretty limited. There's one place in uptown across from the LCBO, who's name escapes me. I've heard that place is pretty good, but it too, closes at 6pm. Only places open past then are the more pricey salons in Conestoga mall. I usually just waited till I came back to Toronto for a weekend to get my hair trimmed. I have yet to get a good hair cut in Waterloo in my four years of being here...smh

    2. Went to Oasis Joe's once, was shit, and expensive. I think BJ's does a better job unless you're looking for an old man cut.

    1. I've seen that place, but the fact that the barbers are wearing fancy clothes makes me think it would be expensive.

    2. ~5 bucks more than first choice, but they definitely try harder to give you a good haircut

    1. (serious) why? i've been going to them for a couple of months now and i like them. maybe a bit pricey, but they seem to give decent service and actually care about your cut.

  8. I'm originally from Waterloo and by far the best barber is Black and White Barbers in Downtown Kitchener. They are pretty young guys that know what they are doing and focus on cutting young adult and teen hair. But they are almost always really busy so prepare to wait and the prices are good too ($16).

    1. I go here often since I live fairly close by now. I totally recommend them, even if there's a wait. They're quick, and with 4 chairs (I think they added another one recently as well) running it's not that much of a wait.

      Only thing to be aware of though is that they don't do debit or credit.

    2. Also, I think they're open until 6 Monday to Saturday, and open 'til 7 on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
