Can anyone recommend a Cambridge-based hairdressers who are capable of dealing competently with longhaired, beardly geeks? (Preferably without chopping it all off!)

I don't know about beards, but I am longhaired. There's the one at the bottom of Regent St. (near Lensfield Road) that I've been mainly using this year.

Kathleen's, 215 Mill Road (01223 246466), are unisex and have coped very well with my long hair in the past, both when I wanted it kept *very* long after the trim and when I needed it trimmed to just-short-enough-that-my-family-don't-lynch-me; they're relatively cheap. Don't know how they deal with beards, but definitely worth asking if how they deal with hair is anything to go by.

Oh, and - avoid any of the gents ones on Mill Road on the town side of the bridge (i.e. the Al Amin / Hopbine / Gwydir St. area) - none of them seem to be aware of any way of dealing with hair that doesn't involve an electric shaver.

I've heard of another one vaguely near Gwydir street that also has some kind of female name. No idea what though... They're supposed to be very good for one long haired bearded guy I know...

I always did think it unfair how us men got cheaper haircuts from unisex places, even us men with 'girly' long hair.

Maybe you should turn up in drag. :)

I doubt I'd be convincing in drag.

hair.co.uk down near market square are good for long hair, at least I found, for beards I couldn't say.

Speaking as a boring shorthaired geek, I always thought one of the advantages of long hair would be not having to go to the hairdressers... What happens to it to require attention?

Split ends. One might want it to be only a certain length. Etc.

It's got rather uneven at the ends, and incidently my beard needs trimming (which is something I can do (just about) for myself, or get someone else to do; but if I've got to have my hair looked at anyway I might as well get them to do).

Also they might be able to provide advice on how to promote more long-haired-ness :).

Neutragena shampoo and conditioner have helped my hair grow longer, along with occasional applications of their 60-second hair repair stuff.

"60 second hair repair" gives me flashes of "Pantene Pro V plastify-your-hair". (Not that I'm saying that that's what it does; it just sounds like it...)
