Everything about this haircut was unconventional — from the ear massage (???) to the language barrier to my face ending up on Instagram (charm charm…?).

Either way — first haircut in eight months was MUCH needed. Thanks Mr. Kelvin and crew :)

PS— fifteen minute long shampoo/condition, haircut, and blow out… $12.50. How am I ever going to stomach going to a salon back home now???!

Thank you to this gem for being not just a student but a wonderful friend. 

Tuan is going to University in the US (Juniata College), and I’ve been working with him to improve his speaking skills before he leaves. One day at tutoring, I asked if he knew what a bagel is, to which he replied, “yeah it’s like a donut” … So deprived. Anyway, our last tutoring session, I took him to get his FIRST BAGEL before jetting off to Pennsylvania.
