need haircuts: recommendations?

Been over a decade since I got my hair cut in Playa. Anybody have a recommendation? Don't need something fancy, but at the same time, I have generally found it to be worthwhile to pay a little more at a place a step or so above the most basic, generic barber shop type of place.

Actually, the original question was going to be just about men's haircuts, but now my wife says she also doesn't know where to go. So suggestions for women's places (Delmy will need something significantly more complicated than I will!) would also be welcome...

All 15 barbers on Constituyentes and 30th can cut hair.
FER is fancy and can give you a special fade

We have this argument in my house and in my workplace (common entity being me). I believe that the recent rash of "barbers" in Playa is a way to jack up the price. Only two real differences between the "barber cut" and the "Colosio cut". The price and the barber poll. Another thing that you will sometimes see is that with the Colosio cut, you will hear a lot of "wey" and in the "barber", they use the more formal "bro." So do those differences make it worth 150 pesos instead of 35? Not for me. Front of the church (Guadalupe) in Colosio. 35 pesos. Fast and good.
