18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Ten Yuan Haircut

During travel in China my partner desperately needed a haircut. We were staying at the Wejun Mansion Hotel and asked in broken Chinese for help. The directed us in a general location of possible places. This tiny shop popped up and we took a risk on it. I watched in a mix of laughter and horror as his hair was being cut away. He still was handsome to my eyes even with the shortest haircut I have ever seen him have.
