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.
Finishing our major refit. Our trip to Newfoundland is off because it is too late. Hoping to go to the North Channel instead.
