On Poetry and Culture Shock

Hairdressers' Names

I am still recycling the oldest posts, among other resons because in my last days in Ithaca I want to give extra doses of culture shock posts.

In Spain most hairdresser’s are called like the owner. A last name tends to indicate a man, while women use their first names. There are very few exceptions. Here in Ithaca there is another ongoing theme.

Hair A’ffayre (or some other horrible spelling). The Mane Event. Hair It Is.

Is there an end to the amount of very bad puns you can do about hair? And, does this happen in the whole country or just here?
