Shave that is.
I can heartily recommend the full shave and haircut service at the Moonstar Barbers in Hisaronu.
I especially enjoyed having my eyebrows plucked with what looked like dental floss, (I could be mistaken here, because the tears streaming down my face made it hard to see), and the use of a burning swab with meths on it which was utilised to burn away the hairs from inside and outside my ears. Lush.
The Barber and his mate were chuckling away in Turkish the whole time. I guess that some of the treatments are reserved just for tourists. I know I looked a complete twat some of the time, because although I couldn't see them through the salty mist, I could hear my wife, daughter and son laughing and dragging people from across the street to come and watch.
However, after the full service, including a neck and shoulder massage, I felt as smooth as a baby's bum, and I smelt like a whole grove of Lemon's.
All for less than six quid !
Oh, and by the way, I don't know why he has put shaving foam on my forehead either......................I think I better be on my own at the next full moon.
