Dear Korea #093 – Chop, Chop

:

Before anyone jumps to conclusions, I swear I’m not a bad friend!! I just tend to get distracted easily..

One problem I’ve seen a lot of my obvious foreigner friends come across is the struggle of trying to get a decent haircut at local salons. This is something I have yet to experience too much myself, but that’s probably due to me having the exact same haircut for the past ten years or so. Since different people have different types of hair, this can be problematic for the poor stylists who only have experience with one type of hair. Heck, even I don’t completely understand how all of that works.

To anyone out there that’s looking to get a haircut in Korea, try to go with someone who can translate, or bring a picture (a lot of them don’t have them fancy picture books). To those of you that have already experienced the situation in this strip, I am quite sorry.
