Chop chop, these prices won't last forever
Are you too poor for designer haircuts, but not quite desperate enough to be lopping it off yourself? The CBD has plenty of cheap places to get your mop chopped, so read on for some of the highlights of places to get your hair highlighted.

Yebbuns Hair

Outside a swirl of flowers and lovehearts, inside a mix of black and neon – Yebbuns certainly is distinctive.

Located at the Grenfell St end of the winding Costas Arcade, the quirky shopfront is hard to miss.

Although there's usually just one staff member on, the customer service is as cheery as the colour schemes.

Price: Womens $25, Mens $20, Kids $15

Tel: 82328812
Opening hours: Mon-Thurs 9-5
Fri- 9-8
Sat - 10-2

Alec's: Gentlemen's Hairdresser and Stylist

Located on the up-and-coming Leigh St just down from Casablabla and Udiberry, Alec's : Gentlemen's Hairdresser and Stylist is no up-and-comer itself, after 37 years of thriving business.

Inside conversation will leap between English and Italian, and the multiculturalism extends to the hair products, with both local and Mediterranean hair products available for sale.

Alec gets up nice and early to open at 7:30am six days a week, and after nearly four decades of cutting, he has a fair idea of what he's doing. There are a couple of other hairdressers in the shop, but Alec gives the best cuts so do your best to get him.

Bookings can be made, but its quite acceptable to just show up and join the queue of regulars sitting up against the back wall waiting their turn.

Price: $18 for men's, and Alec will also do women's hair for the same price.

Opening hours: Mon – Thurs 7:30am – 5:30pm
Fri 7:30am-6:00pm
Sat: 7:30am – 12 Noon

Tel: 8231 2009
Q Image Hair Design

With a sleek, modern interior, Q Image Hair Design is no traditional barbershop. In operation for just under two years, QIHD is all about in with the new, out with the old.

Décor adheres to a strict regime of black and white, and the hair stylists are suitably young and vibrant.

This is the place to go for an affordable haircut that's more cutting edge than conservative. In addition to cuts, there is a wash service, perm, straightenings and hair extensions – BYO hair.

A bit hard to find, it is tucked away off Gawler Place in Rundle Arcade.

Price: Women $28, Men $22, Girls $22, Boys $15

Phone: 82121111

Mobile: 0403559892

Opening hours: Mon-Thurs 9am-5pm
Fri 10am-9pm
Sat-Sun 10am-5pm

Mario's in Wyatt Street is the best gents hairdresser in the CBD. $20 for a haircut and the conversation is brilliant

Very nice article, I've been searching for a new barber since moving workplaces a few years ago. The city have plenty of glorified hair butchers around the place so it's great to be able to get some recommendations.

Liebe in Grote Street is cheaper at $15 and discount on your 5th visit.

I was hoping to find more info from the south of Adelaide. I know of a place in Pulteney St that charge hair cuts for ladies at $15. But going to the city just for the haircut from Aberfoyle Park can be tiresome. Thank you awyway.

Are there any cheap or free hair cutters in the southern Adelaide region?
Cannot afford to get to the city in the limited timeframe I have between kids and work...

+1 for Yebbuns but sadly this establishment now has a For Lease sign in the window (since Feb '19). All the gear is still in the shop so I hope nothing bad happened.
