Lady Barber

Lady Barber, water color on paper, 5x7 inch

In Thailand, getting a haircut can mean more than one thing.  Especially if the barber is a woman and the room with the mechanical chair has a door that can be closed.  A Thai woman would never tell her husband, Honey, I think you need a haircut.  She knows he will get one on his own, whenever he feels the need.  The wife’s only defense is to be so essential to her husband’s life and business in so many ways that the haircuts make no difference.
