¡Corte en el estilo de Chile!

Let’s just say if I didn’t look Latin before, I do now! I got my hair cut – with the single intention of making myself look as Chilean as possible. I think it worked. Though I fear it may the Chilean version of the mullet (in the back at least), it has the perfect amount of mohawk for my taste.

For 8,000 Chilean Pesos (About 15.50 USD), it was a steal. It was an odd experience since unsurprisingly my vocabulary pertaining to cosmetics in Spanish is lacking. In every Spanish textbook, they should add a chapter or at least a page on how to efficiently get a haircut in a Spanish speaking country. It’s difficult when your only vocabulary is ‘estilo’ (style), ‘corte’ (cut), and ‘más/menos’ (more/less). However, as you can see, it looks muy chileno y está de moda (más or menos).

I’m not a big fan of fashion, so this may be one of my rarer topics. More to come about Chilean customs and practices!
