In the days of Glasgow’s hectic 24 hour lifestyle it’s sometimes difficult to find the time to fit in the essentials. The very building blocks of life in the city,  learning to line dance (obviously), interpretive dance routines (essential) and most importantly of all, the fine art of Ceilidh.

We jest of course, everybody in Glasgow knows that we were born with silver toes and a knowledge of Ceilidh dance routines already wired into our DNA.

Anyway here are some of the top barbers available in the city, many of which are open late, allowing you to arrive stress free with a strut in your step.
