the hair(y) deal
besides everything said, written, claimed, suggested, witnessed, experienced (and the list goes on and on and on…), one can easily say, write, claim, suggest, witness, experience (and the list goes on and on and on…) that turkish men might not be the best “barbarians” in the whole wide world but definitely the best “barbers”.
the gene that is inherited from one generation to another fed since young ages with local education, is exclusively for turkish men though, we; the turkish women carry the gene only to enjoy a satisfactory hair-cut or care and what comes along with it; manicure, pedicure and oh yes a decent wax!
it takes a certain amount of trust and anticipation to let a stranger touch your valuable face, pet your throat with an extremely sharp razor, flame up your ears and dig your nose with scissors, but what the hell? that’s what you must pay for a brighter face free of excessive hair and a relaxation caused by a turkish style resurrection done with unique and ancient forms of grooming and hygiene.
for an inexpensive and a refreshing experience, have faith and do drop by your local barber shop. not only you will get a nice hair-cut, a shave and a massage, you will be enjoying a lifetime insight to the contemporary local way of life for a very reasonable price. and the language barrier might be a problem for you, but definitely not for the barber, nor the cook, the thief and their wives and their lovers, and the list goes on and on and on…
