Hairdresser, beauty salon, barber shop…nine I counted along my street. And many more in town. They capture my attention. Doors are open all day long. While I ride on my bicycle, I look left and right and catch a glimpse. A glimpse of a colorful decoration. A smile of a friendly hairdresser when I ask if I may take a picture. And on a closer look the hair salon is also the hairdresser’s home. Mostly with Vietnamese roots, they built up their business in Pakse, Southern Laos.
