Yeah, it’s not breaking news – you won’t see the headline on CNN, but I am going to go have a haircut today. Having a haircut here is a bit different than it was in the States, and for the better too!
The barbers here take the time to do the job right, and the way that you want it. And, the price is so affordable! There is one new barbershop very close to our house, and they charge P25 for a haircut (that’s roughly 50 cents US). I prefer, though, another place, which is Big Tom’s Barbershop in NCCC Mall. They are a little more expensive, P85 (about $1.70) for a haircut, but you get a few little extras with that. You get a shampoo included with the cut, and you also get a nice back and neck massage at the end of the haircut. Well worth the extra, in my opinion.
I like visiting Big Tom’s every week!
