I'm fascinated by this barbershop that my hub and my sons frequent. QBhouse offers 10-minute haircut for 10sgd. The rates are the same for both adults and kids. It cost a little more than kiddie rates in the beauty salons (8sgd) but what I'm impressed are its efficiency, cleanliness and no-nonsense service.
The staff don't handle money. You have to slid a 10sgd dollar bill into a vendo machine that pops out a card. Hand the card over to the barber when it's your turn for a hair cut.
Each booth is a system in itself, especially designed for efficiency. Clean neck paper, brand new comb for each customer, sterilizer for the razors & scissors, air washer (instead of shampoo), closet for customers' things and underneath, there's even a vacuum, that sucks the cut hair.

The staff wears sanitary vest and mask, as well. With the air washer, and blower they leave no scratchy tiny hairs on the neck.
When I first saw the shop, I raised my eyebrows. What's the quality of a 10min haircut?! I'm used to spending hours in the salon and bring the kids with me :)
Then, I brought them to a local barbershop and they had to queue for the Malay barber they prefer. "Style Pinoy, mommy, please.. " What the heck. At the rate the boys grow their hair and frequent the salon, might as well, settle for a no-nonsense 10min. service.
As I always say, it's just hair, it will grow back!

'til next adventure!
