In Cambodia a neat appearance has much value and so no wonder that you can find everywhere small hair salons. Already for a dollar even tourists can have a new haircut. But it takes a bit of courage to go into the hands of such a small barber shop. We were brave and tried a barber in Preah Dak Village – near Siem Reap – just by accident.

Even the hair trimmer comes without electricity

You like to cut max one cm, but it can get easily more, and you can almost feel the tension. It doesn’t happen very often that a tourist cut the hair not in modern salons in the capitals. Quickly you will see many children and onlookers watch the strange spectacle.

This is the result for one US$ : )
Handmade trimming without electricity

Handycraft without electricity.  Even the trimmer comes entirely without, and the comb is missing one or two teeth.  And if somebody is more courageous, he can shave his beard with a proper blade and barber shave foam.
