I DECIDED this weekend it was time for my annual trim and popped into one out our local barbers to have my ears lowered.

I noticed with interest that women getting a haircut seem to pay much more than us blokes.

Why is this? How can they charge different amounts based on a customer’s sex?

Then I realised it’s probably much less work to make me look handsome than some of the old trouts I’ve seen wondering the streets here.

It makes perfect sense.
