Chinese Haricut

Finally, a good haircut in China. They are so cheap here 8 RMB ($1.25) that I can get one every week and still save money over the cheapest haircuts in the states. There has always been one problem though, I don't have the Chinese vocabulary to describe how to cut my hair.

The solution the first year in China was to not get a haircut. At the end of the year, my hair was outrageous! So now I bumble my way through the haircut using gestures and the few words I know at the mercy of the barber hoping he'll somehow understand and get it right.

This time was different. I took a picture on my MP3 player and showed him a good haircut from the past. Without any words and limited gestures, this haircut is the closest one yet!
