Hair International

I'm getting ready to go to Germany, so I make an appointment for a haircut.

"Do you know anything about hairstyles in Germany?" I ask Jeff.

He shrugs. "Should I?"

Fair enough. I mean, it's not like there's a Paris or Milan (or Berlin) of hairstyles. There is, however, Hollywood. In Germany,  I noticed how many teenage boys had haircuts like the current teen idol Zac Efron.

Across age and gender, the most remarkable thing was hair sameness (if that's a word). People in Germany wore their hair just about the same way as people I see every day in Seattle. I did snap a few pictures of especially eye-catching styles (mea culpa to these unsuspecting people -- what can I say, you were stylin').
