Can anyone suggest or recommend a gents barber for a simple short back and sides haircut where they speak enough English for me to avoid a Justin Beiber style (or worse)?

I speak virtually no Spanish yet - in Vietnam I used to just make a buzzing sound for the electric trimmer, and show a length using my fingers, but I'm hoping for a bit more than a crew cut here in Europe!

I live in Laguna, but anywhere in the Center will be great...

Loc: Hastings Old Town , England .
I used to use Marco Aldany ( many branches in the city ) .. I just had them use the razor ( máquina ) .. number 4 all over . The staff are predominantly Latinas . They do a good job of such a simple haircut and are friendly . I seem to remember it costing me something like €8.50 . Alternatively , you could always find a photo of yourself with required style/length of hair and show it to them ( I did that once in my early days in Madrid , terrified I ws going to be butchered , and it worked a dream ) .
