Kabul Korrespondence

Fresh, factual, and funky view of Afghanistan and the surrounding Central Asian region

A Simple Trim

Tuesday, June 12, 2007

As you may or not know, Afghans are a tad obsessed by their looks. I guess that’s what happens after a society is suppressed for so long. The men are more vain than the women, because at least the men can express themselves openly in public.

So, when I was asked to join my Afghan brothers at their local “salon”, I thought I’d go and along and check it out. The moment we entered modern Afghan tunes filled my ears and I knew I was in a pioneering establishment of Afghan style.

The brothers who ran the joint had their own unique style. I asked for a simple beard trim and ended up with the deluxe trim that included nose hair trim, ear hair trim and head massage. (well there was not much work to do on the nose and ears...)

My buddy Hameed, asked for a “Fro Trim” and after they had shaped his fro into a work of art, he was given a Afghan back massage at no extra cost!

I still cant decide which era the Afghans are lost in, the 70's or 80's.....maybe its both.....?
