Vanity on the road

My very cheap Joburg haircut.

Haircuts in Johannesburg are very cheap – 300 rand for wash, cut and blow dry, about $50. You’re not supposed to tip the stylist (I found out afterward), just the woman who washes your hair. And boy does she wash it: three separate shampoos, each accompanied by a head massage that sits firmly in “feels so good but please don’t knead my scalp away” territory. I’m told this is standard across all salons.
