I couldn't find a better topic for my post. I am different from other bloggers. I firstly am finding the topic of my post and composing my essay according to that topic. But the others are writing the essay and putting the topic according to it. What about you?

I saw on The Marmelade Gypsy that his Rick got his hair cut by a woman (female) hairdresser. I commented on her blog that we don't have, as men, female hairdressers in Turkey. We have male hairdressers for women however we don't have female hairdressers for men. What about your country?

While I was writing this post, I saw 2 news that shows in Turkey there are female hairdressers in male barbershops. First one is from Mustafakemalpaşa, Bursa. I read a news from 2016 that hairdresser Rahşan was getting men's hair cut. Mustafakemalpaşa is a small city however she had a lot of customers, according to that news.

The other one is from Denizli. There are 2 girls (17 years old) who are apprentice, Gülsüm and Fadime. They got bored from female customers so they decided to cut male hairs. They said that the men are more compatible than women.

What do you think about this? Could you mention about your country in light of this issue? Do you have male hairdressers as women or do you have female hairdressers as men?

I am not going to barbershop more than 1 year. I am cutting my hair by self. It is not so difficult. I don't like to wait in barbershops so this was a good idea for me.

  1. Hi, ReHiTu! I live in the USA, and here we have male hairdressers who work on the hair of men and women. We also have female hairdressers who work on the hair of men and women. I'm female and my hairdresser is female. She's been my hairdresser for about ten years, although I've known her for over 30 years. She is the last luxury I would give up! Have a good one!

    1. My hairdresser is me, myself. This weekend I am going to cut my hairs. :)

      Thanks for the alert!

  2. Here in Australia we have men who cut women's hair and women who cut men's hair. There are (I think) more men who cut women's hair than women who cut the hair of men though.

    1. I am sure that there are more men who cut women's hair in Turkey.

      Thanks for the comment.

  3. We have female barbers here in the USA, and we have male hairdressers who cut women's hair.

    1. Do female barbers cut also the men's hair Linda?

  4. I cut my husband's hair with an electric cutter. Happy weekend.

    1. My wife doesn't help me about this topic. :(

    > Great to know that you cut your own hair....
    Have a wonderful weekend

  6. Here in the U.S., we have both male and female hairdressers who cut hair for both males and females. I was never a fan of going to beauty parlors, so for most of my life, I'd cut my own hair or have a friend do it for me. Since my husband retired in 2002, he hasn't gone to the barber shop at all. He doesn't have much hair left, but when it starts to get long in the back, he grabs a pair of scissors and whacks it off. And it's kind of funny, but since he retired, now I go to the salon every couple months and let a pro cut my hair. She does a good job for a decent price, but the real reason I go is for the sheer luxury of having someone else wash my hair. :)

    1. Thanks for the detailed comment Susan. In Turkey, we are paying, as men, 20,00₺ (about $4,00) to get cutted our hairs. However the women pay more I think.

  7. I'm also from the US and we have both. My hairdresser is a woman. I wish could cut my own hair but it wouldn't be looking very good! Good for you for doing your own.

    1. It is quite easy because I don't like long hairs. Thanks Mari.
