Free Haircuts @ Around Town

Ajarn Prayon is a hairdressing teacher who does free haircuts at different places in town from Monday to Friday. He sets up stalls with a few barbers according to the day of the week, as follows:

Monday: Suvanakhon Market by the 7 Eleven at Maharat Hospital

Tuesday: Chainarong Gate (The Ghost Gate) on the south side of the moat near The Punjadara Hotel

Wednesday: Na Salakan, by Korat's municipal buildings on Mahatthai Road where the annual BBQ Festival is often held

Thursday: Maharat Hospital

Friday: Phon Saen Gate (on Prajak Road and Phon Saen Road)


It looks to me to be a better option for males wanting a cheap haircut, though I am sure he wouldn't turn women away. Be warned, the barbers are mainly trainees and you may end up with a shorter back and sides than you bargained for. I would recommend this place to people who have resigned themselves to buzz cuts, like myself.

In fact, if you are looking to become a barber, you can even learn with Ajarn Prayon and get a certificate. He charges 5,500 Baht for a 3-4 month hairdressing course.
