街边理发

上次理发是3月14日。时隔70天后,在路边剪了个发‍。

小区新发了出门证,于是出去溜达。路过一个路口时看到有位大姐正在给人理发,旁边摆了两个凳子,但没人等候。心想自上海封城一来一直都没剪头发,刚好遇到了就不妨剪剪。

理发过程中和大姐闲聊。她说自己的理发店就在旁边不远,封城期间不让开。这几天街面上人多了一些,干脆就在路口摆个理发摊。生意还不错,忙的时候有十几个人排着等候。理发毕竟是刚需,何况上海封城两个多月了,大家封闭在家,大多数人都无法打理自己的头发,理发就更是绝对刚需了。接着聊疫情对生活的影响,如今的所谓抗疫对民众而言已是无妄之灾。又聊起了家常,还聊到了赡养老人家。大姐是湖北人,很健谈。

聊着聊着,头发剪好了。没有镜子,就拿自己的手机摄像头看看。理得挺好,手艺还不错。

花费了20元,价格很公道。正常时候的剪发频率,差不多15天一次。这倒好,这70天少剪了多次,算是省了不少钱😄

没理之前,顶着一头长了多天的长发,像是顶了个瓜皮或头盔,两鬓的头发也一直扎耳朵,很难受,这是来自头发的抗议。剪完后舒服多了。没有电吹风,那就吹吹自然风,清爽无比~


A haircut by the street

I had a haircut on March 14th. 70 days later, I had my hair cut by the street.

Today I got a new exit pass issued by the official community committee, so I went out for a walk. I saw a hairdresser at work on the roadside at a crossing. The hairdresser was a lady, she was giving a man a haircut. Two blue plastic stools were there, but no one was sitting on them and waiting. Since Shanghai was forced into lockdown, my hair has continued growing. It was a good chance for me to have my hair cut.

I had an easy talk with the lady hairdresser while my hair was being cut. She said her salon was nearby, but was forbidden to open in lockdown. It seemed these days more people were on the roads than before, so she decided to carry out her business on the roadsides. Anyhow, the roadside business was not bad. Sometimes the people waiting were above 10. Haircut was a rigid demand for people. Shanghai had been in lockdown for 2 months, nearly everyone had to stay home, most of them had no way to have their hair cut, so haircuts became an urgent need.

The easy talk with her continued. We talked about the Covid-19 pandemic that made normal living messed up. The forced lockdown was an unexpected disaster for people. We talked a lot more, such as family, eldly caring and so on. The hairdresser was from Hubei province, she was a good talker.

The haircut was done. No mirror, so I checked my haircut via my smartphone camera. Not bad.

The price for the haircut was ¥20,  a good price. My normal haircut frequency was one time every 15 days. I hadn’t had haircuts for 70 days,  that was a big money save😄

Before my hair was cut, the long hair covered on my head was like a watermelon peel or a helmet. The hair on both sides of my head always stabbed my ears, which was the protest from my hair. The long hair was cut, I felt so comfortable now. There was no electric hair dryer, pure natural breeze blew on my head. It was a fresh and cool feeling, so great.
