  • Your beautiful story of your visit to the nice lady in her peluquería in Spain reminded me of this hair saloon, which I saw in Namibia, in a tiny town called Usakos.

    Contrary to the sign to the right the place was closed, though, even though I arrived during official opening hours.

    You do not trust that this might be The World´s Very Best Hair Saloon?

    I do!

    Have you ever seen the incredible hair dos of black women, be it in Africa, North Carolina or elsewhere?

    They create art with hair on heads that is absolute Alta Moda - Houte Couture - the top of the best you have ever seen.

    As I was unlucky that day, though, my hair kept being straight and red with grey and quite boring.

    If I ever return to Usakos, I will for sure try my luck again and share a photograph of the outcome with all of you!
