Neck-cracking barbers



  • I understand that in some parts of the world (e.g., India), it is common for barbers to crack the customer's neck after a haircut. Has anyone on the forum had this experience?



  • No but i would welcome it to the UK.

    A Trim and a Twist
    A Shave and a Snap

    haha nice MC!



  • There are some real amusing anecdotes re neck-cracking barbers - including several from Vietnam where American GIs were startled (to put it mildly 8O ) by their barber suddenly twisting their neck around to crack it. That would have been funny … in hindsight.

    I've come across blogs/reports of barbers in the following countries doing the neck-crack procedure:

    Malaysia
    Singapore
    Indonesia
    Vietnam
    Philippines
    India
    Turkey

    I wonder which country it was that the practice started and how it spread from place to place...



  • sounds like an indian thing, so probably started there.
