What's with that "barber shop" that opened across from the mexican food place on MLK? Is it a true place of business or a squat house? Do all barbers cut all hair types? I'm looking for a place that does clipper hair designs on kids.
I've never really cared for Lamar's. I used to go to Sanchez Barber Shop, over on Invasion St (I think), but it looks like he has shut down. I stopped going years ago, because his hours were getting shorter and shorter. He may have retired or died, but I do not know.
There is (was?) another barber across from Garcia's and I went there until I started working outside of San Marcos. Now, I get my hair cut in the big city. Heh.
Anyway, the place across from Garcia's does good clipper cuts, although I never got any designs done. There was a big guy there, who looked like he might have learned to use the clippers in prison. Great cuts.
I've got one more to mention.
It's out in the middle of nowhere, but well worth the drive.
Silva's in Staples Texas.
Take C.R. 621 behind the high school and follow it out about 8 miles. You'll come to the thriving metropolis that is Staples Texas ( acutally it's a town of about 75 people ). In downtown you'll find a general store and a baber shop...That's it.
The barber shop is about the size of a small bedroom and every inch of it is covered with various articles about the family and it's history.
Haircuts are 7 bucks and you will not be dissapointed. I got my first one there last week and it was one of the best I've had in a long time.
Staples is a cool little burg.
( I believe that Silva's has a shop in S.M. also...may be the one across from Garcias )
Anyone know for sure ?????
I gave up and bought clippers years ago. My 6 year old has a 4-inch tall mohawk (1/4" long everywhere else) and I have a sort of flat top thing going. Nothing beats $30 for a set of clippers and guards spread out over 5 years! That's what I call C-H-E-A-P, baby!
I wonder if the local elementary schools in San Marcos would make my boy cut his hair to be less "eccentric". I was surprised it was tolerated while he was in Kindergarten, even here in Cali. I live in the most conservative area of California, so it was a legit concern and nobody cared.
Deisel in my "work" F350 SuperDuty Turbo Charged Power Stroke.....$1.00
Gas in my wifes "commuter" Ford Escape.....$0.025
You'll find that Texas is, what some people call, "a really big state", with a lot of really cool stuff to see spread out over its 250,000+ square miles. If saving money on gas is an issue for you, I would try a smaller state in New England, or just move to Houston.
I drive to Round Rock once a week to go skate. It's about 100 miles round trip.
Takes me longer to drive up there and back than the time I spend skateboarding. And I love it. ( I don't even know, or care, how much it cost me to drive up there)
Hey A-2 what's the Sat. hours and cost at Lamar's? Thought I would try something other than a burr for the first time in about 4 years. repeater 75, your right about the clippers. Hadn't paid for a hair cut in about 6 years.
