Back home I wouldn't fear going to the barbershop but in a new country I felt differently. Putting the fate of my hair in the hands of a stranger that I could hardly communicate with was a difficult challenge for me. Moreover, Spain has too many bizarre hairstyles for me to not be at least a little nervous. For example we have:
The Standard Mullet
The Dread Mullet
Contrary to my expectations, I didn't end up looking like an extra out of The Warriors. Although the haircut was pretty European, it suits me fine. When in Rome, I suppose.
