Also, I got a haircut today. It is definitely not the best haircut I've ever gotten, but it's not the worst my hair has ever looked, either. Actually, that should not be a surprise to anyone who knows me, because if you're a hair stylist it would be pretty hard to beat some of the awful hair moments (read: months) that I've had in my life, unless you are deeply sadistic and also blind.
And it cost approximately 30 times less than my haircuts in the United States. I asked one of the women if she was going to be taking a National Day holiday, and she replied that only rich people can take holidays. Maybe she should charge more than 10 kuai for haircuts.
