Global haircuts

I pay 45 CHF (approx 45 US$) for a haircut in Basel, Switzerland. Nothing special. Just washing and a haircut.

I paid 1650 Malawi Kwacha (approx 10 US$) for a haircut in Blantyre, Malawi.

I paid the equivalent of 4 US$ for a haircut in Shanghai, PRC.

Just saying.

  1. I’ve really got to think hard to remember when I last had my hair cut at the hairdresser’s. 🙂 I cut the tips myself. Priceless, heh.

  2. Hei, you got a cheap hair cut. I used to pay CHF 62 when I still had short hair. Nothing special either… I haven’t been to the hair dresser for some years though 🙂
