Here in Pune I get my hair cut at A Cut in Time barbershop, located in the Boat Club Road area only about 4 or so kilometers from my flat. Some months back I posted a picture of a roadside barber; these are very common across the city. However driver Rupesh recommends this place as better quality, and I’m always happy to have him guide me in matters of this sort. The cuts I get here are good, though a bit reminiscent of the Kennedy Administration.
This shop provides a great many services:
At Rs. 50, a haircut is less than $1.
I have not yet dared the chest-hair trim, but I have sampled the head massage with oil. Among the oils you can choose from is a rather terrifying fire-engine red substance – this I declined, and instead selected olive oil – extra virgin of course. The experience was both relaxing and invigorating, though the waft of olive oil that followed me the rest of the day kept me much in the appetite for shrimp scampi.
