Taper/Fade Haircut in Prague?

I'm moving to Prague for almost two months. I need a place that can cut a taper/fade. For example, something like:

Bizarre question, but I cant go two months without a haircut!

shouldn't be hard to find a salon to do this cut.....it will be harder for you to describe to the stylist what you want... I'd wait and see when you arrive and look around your neighborhood......as a minimum, the shopping centers have chain hair salons

............

as with other tourist places, you're gonna pay quite a bit more if you use a salon in the center

Looks like a pretty standard haircut - it is how I have mine done when I get round to it, but I have no idea what it is called - I just say "three weeks' worth off" or however long it was and they get the idea.

It shouldn't cost you more than about 150 Crowns in a decent place.

I think you'd get plenty of blank looks if you asked for that.

Just take a picture of what you want and hope for the best. In my experience it always comes out different every time anyway, but I'm not that fussy and a bit of hairgel can make the world of difference. Any more than ten minutes sat in the chair makes me feel nervous - in the right hands it shouldn't take longer than that for the cut that you require.

A good fade takes about a half hour to do. If they spend ten minutes then its too much of a rush to fade it properly. This is because the blades range from zero to three or four and it takes a significant amount of time to blend the numbers in. This is a better example of what I am talking about:

Even in the U.S., it can be a challenge to find a good barber who can blend right. So, I'll go with a few pics and see what they come up with. Cheers.

You will also find that the vast majority of hairdressers are ladies in the Czech Republic - it is very much a female profession, so 'barbers' are thin on the ground :)
