I am trying to get back into the e-swing of things.
Even shaky babies can walk.
So, how does that connect with the title image today?
I'm advertising my shakiness, at least as regards to posting reliability.
And that girl is advertising her beauty.
Which you can get, too.
From a tiny little hairstylist's place of business, in a rural town--Kaifeng, China.
...Hair stylists for her...
As you can read, they offer a full wash, cut, blow dry, and the obligatory head and neck massage, all with the latest fashion styling trends.
The head and neck massage, at least twenty minutes long, is so obligatory that it's not even listed.
But, it's there or this business wouldn't be since all of their competitors offer it.
And all this for the princely sum of 13 renminbi, sometimes known as 13 yuan.
Which is approximately 1.47 euros.
Or 1.91 USD.
Or 1.98 CDN.
Or 2.03 CHF.
...You are going to the top hairstylist in town, after all...
(That's real red brick; not some cheap linoleum facade.)
...Hence the high price...
Now, I could discuss the other commercial aspects of hairdressers throughout Asia.
How barber poles with rotating spirals mark out places to lose your tension... ...after letting it build a bit first...
But, maybe I'll leave brothels for another day.
After, all would need to figure out what the going rate is these days...
That post would, however, put a whole new spin onto the idea of a barbershop quartet.
...Wicked, torrid thoughts... (obedient sin--for Murat)...
