Could not believe how terrible this experience was. I took my 6-year-old and myself up to this shop to get a haircut today, which turned out to be the worst mistake ever.
First, as I walked in, I was clearly surrounded by thugs. Even the barbers themselves were thugs! Gold teeth, tattoos, bling-bling chains... you name it! I was told about a fifteen- to twenty-minute wait by what was apparently the owner, who spoke extremely ghetto himself! I ended up waiting an hour and twenty minutes! Had the "owner" not told me that he'd "take care of" my son and I, I would've walked out of there instantly. He told us he'd give us a discount for waiting so long.
Next, as I sat in his chair, he proceeded to use his hair clippers on my head before I stopped him. The clippers were disgusting looking! They had a ton of jheri curl stuck in them from the last however-many clients! It was so disgusting, I almost threw up! I made him switch out clippers, which gave him a horrible attitude.
Between stopping my hair cut several times so he could have casual ghetto conversation with the rest of his staff, taking several phone calls from his wife who he called "his b*tch", and taking several other phone calls from his accountant and other "home boys", it took over an hour to finish my hair.
I was extremely unhappy with the hair cut, which he said he couldn't fix, however he offered me a "scoop of gel". Now when I say "scoop", i mean "gallon-full". He took a hand-full size of hair gel and slapped it on the top of my head. He used so much gel, it oozed down the side of my head, dripping all over the place.
What shocked me the most is when he told me the price was $45!!! I got into an argument with him and front of the entire staff, and he said "hey we can get da po-po here right now, n***a!" (Referring to police as "po-po", and calling me "n***a", although I'm Irish-German).
Being a successful guy, paid the man his $45 and told him I'd be letting everyone know about his garbage business. Just before I walked out the door he stopped me and gave me the middle finger right in my face. He said "you think you're da first n***a that didn't give me a tip?!"
I was twice this little twirp's size, plus I was in front of my son, so I didn't even retaliate. I calmly walked out, knowing I'd let everyone know about this piece of crap barber shop. STAY OUT OF PACINO'S BARBER SHOP FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!!!
