I survived my first Japanese haircut!
I was most worried about getting my hair cut here. I only cut it twice in Korea, and both times left me quite disappointed with the results. The styles are a bit different, and so is the hair texture. The language barrier can also be intimidating and confusing, but my mane was getting out of control so I decided to just walk into a hair salon and get it over with. Hair salons abound in Japan, so it's easy to just walk in without an appointment.
The girl who cut my hair was lovely, and I even chatted with her in broken Japanese. I showed her some pictures of my previous haircut and she did a great job, I was pleasantly surprised with the results. It had been six months since my last trim, and my hair was quite damaged, so it feels healthy again.
I realize I just wrote a whole entry about a haircut, but honestly, those kinds of small things can become a big challenge when you live abroad!
