So, any forumers who have had the disadvantage of meeting me will know that I have very short hair. After years of struggling with hairdressers trying to give me a shampoo and set and a bouffant blow dry, I have finally discovered the joy of barbers.

The last time I took my son to get his haircut, the barber said: Let me cut your hair sometime, and last week, I took him up on it. He cut my hair very short, just how I wanted it, said how soft my hair was, how much the cut suited me, and was generally charming for 20 mins, and charged me a tenner.

This contrasted sharply with the last hairdressers I used who wouldn't cut off too much as she said it made my face look harsh, constantly blithered about it being important to grow your hair when you're getting older as it was just as good as Botox, told me to guard against a thinning scalp, while having a running commentary with her mate about the Kardashians. And charged me £40!!

I have seen the light and it involves getting my neck shaved and talking about the football, while having someone be totally nice to me. Consider me converted. Xx

I would never have thought of a barbers, what a good idea. I got so depressed with the chit-chat at the hairdressers, I just stopped going. My hair is ridiculously long now, purely because I couldn't face going and being ripped off. I don't know anything about the Kardashians, and my football knowledge is pretty thin as well. Is there a book of 'conversations at the barbers'? I bet they don't say, 'you know what, I could hide your greying hair with some highlights' What a ****** liberty.

Not always easy and economical

Not been in the barbers for nearly twenty years. My wife started cutting my lads' hair when they were little and after initial trepidation I get sheared the same. Saves cash and having to feign interest in West Ham and Arsenal

Oh Lynne, I feel your pain. Part of the depressing thing about middle age is the unwarranted comment from people about getting older. Like my dentist who, in the middle of a check up, when my mouth is wide open and I can't say: Fuck off, you rude wanker, informs me that they are now doing Botox as part of their services!!! And all the comments about greys, growing your hair long to cover the wrinkles, your hair thinning as you get older, it's like they're talking to Miss Haversham, decomposing slowly in their shiny chairs! I actively look forward to the day where they say "same" and I say "yup" because it would save my unshakeable faith in humanity being eroded, soul destroying little bit by little bit.

And I would never have gone to the barbers if he hadn't asked me. My children say it's OK as long as a) I don't go at the same time as them and b) I go in school hours so none of their friends see me! I now have a 1940s short back and sides and I am very happy. x

a lot to be said for 'the usual' Going to my barber for a few years now and that's how it is, easy going chat and a decent cut. The other place I went to before had won all kinds of awards (all be it not a fancy dan place) but I got fed up of them yapping to their mates, stopping and checking their txt messages or answering the phone when cutting your hair. Followed by the usual quizzical 'ahh right where was I' look when they remembered again where they were and what I am paying them to do.

For where you can't go
Mustang horses, champagne glasses
Anything frail anything wild
It's the price of living motion, what's beautiful is broken
And grace is just the measure of a fall.

Although I am a barber - with a capital "B" - I don't use one....

Now you mention it Helen. I do have a resemblance to Miss Haversham. My hair is long and unruly, I have to have hair slides, combs and all sorts, to control it. My gran had very long plaits that were put up on the top of her head, a bit like a hair band. Maybe I should go for that.

'Same and yup' is a perfect conversation with someone you don't really know, but you have to let get quite personal with you. I'm really temped. I had short back and sides for most of my teenage years. My eldest said, when I turned 50, I should think about starting to wear tweeds and a hat, Miss Marple style. I'm 54 not 97.

Is that what dentists do now? Botox??? I did notice when I went last year, the call waiting thingy was an advert saying 'Do you wish your smile was whiter and brighter?' I should have hung up, there and then.

Oh, lovely Lynne. You're not Miss Haversham, darling. Sure you are proper lovely. But I would recommend cutting off one's hair. I used to have Crystal Tips and Alistair hair, like a monstrous, fat, hairy cat sitting on top of my head. Hit 30 and cut the whole lot off, which I have found a most liberating experience as not all girls have the necessary hand/eye co-ordination to do the hair dryer brush balancing act. I used to end up either looking like an extra in the Hair Bear Bunch or Olive out of On The Buses with a pan of gravy head. Now, I just stick it in the sink, give it a shake and I'm ready for the off. Mornings in our house are just piss and go, as opposed to wasting an hour on the barnet.

Anyhow, on the subject of getting old, I crossed a line of decrepidness yesterday. I was at the Tube and offered to help a blind guy down the stairs and he turned round and said: It's ok, I've got to pick up the litter... new glasses on order as we speak... xxxx
