Hello. I wrote two dialogues. Would you correct them?

No. 1 At the shop

W: Aren't you interested in ( looking at ) a video camera?

M: No. Like I said, I need still picutures only [ I need only still pictures ]. ( Q.Which position is better about "only"? )

W: I know, but this video camera is perfect for you, because

it can take both movies and still pictures. Besides, the price

is quite reasonable.

No. 2 At the barber

M: I'd like to have my hair cut fairly short. ( Q. "get my hair cut" is OK? )

F: Certainly. How about in back?

M: Above the collar. And a shave and shampoo, please.

Thank you! kenta

Actually, in casual conversation like this, the average American would probably say, "I only need still pictures." "Only" at the end would be used to emphasize insistance, or in a sign. (The other version is fine.)
