Jason Andy and Marvin are all still cutting hair. There is no loss or increase in the number of barbers, so your outrage is...well....pointless. Good luck to all haircutters in the town, we have hair, and it needs cutting. Perhaps Spongebob you should have listened to the 'Now' show today. they had a funny piece abou how people get completely outraged by trivia, and completely fail to be outraged by things that actually matter. Anyway i thought you would support this 'expansion' using your usual arguments about choice etc.

Dont worry Spongebob....although you alarmingly resemble Marvin the Manicly Depressed Robot from HitchHikers!!! there is No expansion!! He took over an already existing Barbers so there is still only Four!! Anyway I wrote this on here at the risk of getting it in the neck but its nice to see that people have become more positive!! Thanks Lauren I knew there would be some people on here who were wondering where he was!! And Thanks Spongeblob your comment took the words right out of my mouth!!!

I understand that a recent local pub quiz question was: Name 6 hairdressers in Lewes. (So there are probably more than 4)...
I will begin -
Andy and Marvins
Donalds

Ooops, sorry TDA. Just spotted you've alredy mentioned them.
Axtell
This is a timely thread. I was trying to work out how many hair cutting places we have last night. My friend lives in a village about the size of Ringmer and they have 6 hairdressers!

If one hairdresser worked 5 days a week, every week of the year, and cut 10 haircuts a day that would only be 2600 cuts a year. Pressuming that everyone in lewes cuts their hair here, that the population is approx 20,00, and they all get 6 cuts a year that would be 120,000 haircuts. So that would require approximately 45 individual cutters. If approximatel 4 got together to create a business, that would be about 11. Obviously very rough but gives an idea why we have so many hairdressers. Maybe Spongebob is bald, a seik, a hippy, doesn't like competition, or a baby. Excuse mathematical errors, I was just curious, and it seems that lots of hairdressers is common in every town village, or city in the country.

The question in the quiz was hairdressers. But you're quite right, the original post was about barbers....

So in total there are at least 5 barbers -
Andy and Marvin
Jason
Donald
The miserable bloke on Station Road near the artshop
Another one I've missed above..?
At least 8 Hairdressers -
Browns
Castle
Langfields
Dome
Snippets (or is that the barbers?)
Avante Garde
Esquires
That one in the Needlemakers

Holy Moly that's 15.
