Most Thai men have regular type hair cuts, there are barber shops all over! Unless you are going to some yuppie type place expect to pay 60 to 100 baht in Bangkok, cheaper in smaller towns. Many barbers are women, doesn't bother me, I usually take who ever is next up.

Ask your hotel clerk for a local place to go to. Or you can find some just walking around. When you are having a beer in a beer bar, ask one of the regulars where they go for haircuts. Some beauty shops will cut men's hair, ask the price first though. I usually get my hair cut in Pattaya. Anyway, the only difference between a good haircut and a bad haircut is about 2 weeks!

I met an English girl, when I was in Shanghai. She only once took off the scarf, she insisted on wearing all the time, to show me her old Chinese lady hair cut, which she got from a Chinese hairdresser.

Are u sure the hippy look does not suit u? ;)
Anyway, there was a thread, on this forum, last August, or September, asking exactly the same question. Somebody had an answer, so maybe it is possible to dig up that thread. ;)

This is one thing i have been thinking about
Am not into the skinhead look , but if i look like a wavy haired looking thai i think it will all have to come off

What about the hippy look Paul. It is very low maintenance. I havent cut my hair for years.
And Thailand is a good place, for the hippy look. The water is very soft and washing hair in it, makes it look great.;)

Paul, that's crazy talk. The salons in Bangkok are great. A lot of them cater to Westerners, especially the ones that are in some of the big hotels out by the airport (although they charge more, too). Besides, like al said, two weeks.
