el peluquero

600_4105-e_wor “the hairdresser” in English.

This project in Havana is meant to give the poor an opportuntiy to earn their own money by teaching them to become a hairdresser. On the other hand old and poor people can get a free haircut by being a volunteer for the trainees. So, both side can profiting.

You, as a tourist, can visit the school and the regular salon. It’s a complete (even small) street between Plaza Vieja (Nueva) and the bay. You can also find some art here.

And … the salon also contains a museum with historic hairdressers tools – worth to see!

While waiting for my next post, I encourage you, to have a look at my past posts. Take care.
