Holiday Hairdos

The typical haircut experience in Genoa could be an entire chapter in a book. Hole-in-the-wall salons are tucked into nearly every narrow street in the historic center, many of them appearing to have occupied the same spot -- and with the same décor -- since at least the 1800s! No appointments are taken, and you just have to hope that you drop by when the salon is open, the utilities are working, and the line is small. 

Such was our luck this last week, with the additional good fortune of a friendly father-and-daughter team who cut the girls’ hair. It was a(nother) unique experience, and with adorable results!
