The habbit of getting a haircut in London

As you may know, I am in London for the podcast conference tomorow. And while my arrival in London was an absolut horror, since yesterday evening it begins to be as I had hoped to. I will go into that horror story later when i am back home (I lost my money and credit card, not sure if it was stolen or just lost - being stranded on Stansted airport is not a pleasant story), but today was a rather pleasent day.
So just some short notes:
I spent yesterday evening with lovely Rachel Clarke for a very nice italian meal (the first thing I had to eat that day after I puked out the water and paprika in the air plane that early morning). I will spend this evening in a very cool unexpensive bar with her.
After being moved from one of the bigger rooms (a small cell) into an even smaller room (flickr fotos to come) I found this new room to be more pleasant: some free wifi around here is 48% of reach instead of 22% in the bigger room. :))
I from now on love the UK: They have milk available nearly everywhere and the little bar here with tee, coffee etc has not cream but little milk cups! :)
If you ever want a perfectly suited but not expensive hotel: Take Hallam Hotel with a single room for 39 pounds. Yes, the rooms are very small, and it is a bit old charmed, and not in perfect shape, but hey! It is London, Oxford Street, the people are friendly and it is clean. You can't beat that as a price. I much prefer to spend my money outside in hotels.
I noticed some clever business owners here, will follow with foto coverage.
Visited the British Museum - very nice, especially because it is free. Nice souvenirs there.
And the reason for the post: This is my second time ever to London. And the first time I was with my school here - and got the most perfect hair cut of my life. Today I wandered around the city and had unsuccessfully tried to get a hair cut before I flew over here (unsuccessful as in: the one I wanted was not available and all the other girls in that store are not able to cut my hair).
So when I saw the sign of cheap hair cut in a trendy place, I decided to go in - and now feel more prepared for tomorow. "Please make it more fun, more funky but not too funky, I am going for a business conference tomorow." :)) I hope she did well enought, it defenetly feels better than before.
I checked out the hotel and it really will be a 5-10 minute walk. :) But I will skip over that breakfast - me and breakfast don't go together well. ;(
