Re: Haircuts while cruising?

June does my hair and either does hers or exchanges hair cuts with another cruiser, invariably female. It is quite common for some cruisers to do cuts. We bought proper barber scissors and they certainly help.

We met one cruiser who was a professional hairdresser and she did cruisers' hair on a beach in the Caribbean (can't remember which one) and the locals got upset because of what they saw as unfair competition. She would have been better off if she did the cuts on her boat of course.

Edit -- I should have mentioned that June does a terrific hair cut. Not as fast as a pro barber, but very good job.

Heading back to Lake Ontario for this summer. Relatively few stops along the way from Grenada. Martinique, Guadeloupe, St. Martin (must have something to do with the French food), then Bermuda, New England and up the Hudson/Erie Canal. We were going to go via Newfoundland and Labrador but June remembered that one of the kids is getting married this summer - details, details!
