Hair Cutter for Boys

Original post made by Lisa on Jan 7, 2009

Anyone know a good hair cutter for boys? Not the classic short hair style cut, more like the skater-dude cut. Cosmos is too hit or miss. Thank you.

You mention that Cosmos is "hit or miss". If you like some of the hair cutters, take down their name(s). You can make appointments or wait for them specifically next time that you go.

I have 2 teenage boys who are very picky about their "skater style" haircuts and I take them to Alicia at Allure Hair Salon in Dublin. She is young and hip and always does well. 556-1889. Good luck!

I don't know of any in the Tri Valley- use to go to Cosmo's but I started getting picky as well. Like you said, a hit or miss. I would check out Yelp.com. It's a consumer type website where costumers can rate and comment on businesses around town. I'm sure they have a good list of hair cutting/salon places to go to.

One thing I do know that I learned from friends who are stylists is tell them exactly what you want. I've heard them say that most people are way to vague and expect miracles. Good luck ;)

Why leave Pleasanton?

Christine over at Touch of Elegance in downtown Pleasanton does a great job on cool kids cuts and has been doing them for a long time. All the kids I know that use her are huge fans.

How much is a boys haircut at these salons? My son's hair is thick and curly, no one seems to know what to do with it.

Tough of Elegance charges $25, I believe. It's no Cosmo's!

Alicia at Allure charges $20. She used to be in Pleasanton, that's how we found her. My boys refuse to let anyone else touch their hair, so Dublin it is!

Al's behind Strizzi's is a good salon, too. Al wears a 80's layered, long style himself.
