Telling a barber 'leave one inch'

Recommended Posts

I can tell the barber 3 on the sides but not 8 on top, they only usually go up to 4 blades on their clippers. When I tell them "leave one inch" and show one inch using my thumb and index finger, I still get 2 inches, .75 inches depending on the day.

 

Not terrible but just curious if there's a better way to communicate this. I thought about "two point five centimet" but i'm not sure if that's any more clear, or more confusing.

2 on the sides and 4 on top. I don't have to ask, he knows exactly how I want it now.

Stop paying a barber. Stop getting haircuts altogether...

Buy a hair clipper with spacers and get the GF/ wife to do it.

Tell them 2-3 centimeter

They have no idea of "inch" & your finger will soon be forgotten

Inch in Thai is a "newt"...sounds like that anyway. Sure, Thai people know what an inch measurement is?

tell him 'song centimet kueng' might help to get anywhere near that measurement 😂

Tell him you want the Moe on top and the Curly on the sides.  He'll know.

Seems so trivial and ridiculous really.

Just shave it all like I do. TG's actually like a clean bald look..

I have long hair, and never had a problem attracting Thai girls.
