    All are grammatically acceptable, though the first two are highly unlikely. The barber is more likely to cut Bob's hair than to have/get it cut.

    I am totally with you ,victorbort . The three sentences are correct but the third sentence is the best.
    Thanks victorbort for paying attention to the wrong form of the first questions:
    Which of these sentences is grammatically corect? Why are incorrect the others?
