Barbershop Problem

A traveller arrives in a small town and decides he wants to get a haircut. There are only two barbershops in town - one on East Street and one on West Street. The East Street barbershop is a mess, and the barber has the worst haircut the traveller has ever seen. The West Street barbershop is neat and clean, its barber's hair looks as good as a movie star's.
Which barbershop does the traveller go to for his haircut, and why?

  1. He'll go to the east street barber as there are only 2 barbers in town so west street barber must get his haircut from east one which is giving best hair cut.

  2. He would go to east side as the reason the west side barber can cut his own hair which implies that east side barber is responsible for such a good hair cut, also as no one is visiting west side barber hence it is clean and neat.

  3. the traveller vl go to east barber shop!!

  4. West street barbershop because we don't know about haircut they do will be good or bad, so he will try for west st. b. because of neat and clean. And it is not necessary that west street barber will get his haircut from east on. if a traveller can decide to get haircut in another city then he can also go in any another city.

    1. This is a question of logic not what he would do in real life

  5. Obviously at the Barber with the worst hair cut .. as his hair is cut by the other barber :-)....

  6. without going to the barber shop where the barber's hair was in worst looking, the traveler cant know that the barber shop cutting is worst..

    so, traveler had cut his hair in the East street barber shop...


  7. East Street barber shop ...because no barber can cut his own hair, since only 2 shop's are available in the area,they must have cut each others hair. So , the traveler has to take a wise decision

  8. if i am the traveller, iwould go to one who charge less.

  9. obviously, he would go to East street
