Tashkent / Uzbekistan
It was difficult to find a barber in the capital of Uzbekistan, Central Asia. Local said many barber, but the sign was not showy or no sign in ex-communism countries. From outside, we can not see a barber. However some unisex luxury hair saloon in the center of downtown. I wanted to enter ordinary local barber.
Finally I found a barber near the biggest market whose size is more than 10 soccer stadium. The skill was high. Uzbek people hair are the same as Japanese. Their roots are from Mongolia or Turkey, same Asian. I ordered shaving. Very kind. This barber was a little rich barber. Usually 1000 sum = 1 US$. The cost is very cheap in Uzbekistan.
2000 sum = 2 US$ 2005/05
