Haircut brothers

Intro: sp.
The '''haircut brothers''' (Japanese: '''さんぱつきょうだい''' ''Haircut brothers'') are characters in {{game|Gold and Silver|s}} and their remakes, {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}, occasionally appearing in the [[Goldenrod Tunnel]] in [[Goldenrod City]], [[Johto]].
As the name suggests, the brothers give a single Pokémon a haircut that increases the [[Happiness]] of the Pokémon, once per day. Using the services of the brothers is useful for evolving Pokémon that require a certain amount of Happiness to evolve, such as {{p|Togepi}} or {{p|Eevee}}. In HeartGold and SoulSilver, the service not only raisiesraises a Pokémon's Happiness, but also raises its Beauty stat, which is necessary to evolve {{p|Feebas}} into {{p|Milotic}}, due the absent of [[Pokémon Contest|Contest]] in the games.
The younger of the Haircut brothers is cheaper at {{PDollar}}300, but his service is often less satisfactory. However, the younger brother has a chance of occasionally increasing a Pokémon's Happiness to a greater degree than the older brother is capable. The older brother is more reliable but more expensive at {{PDollar}}500.
