Transfer haircut

Japanese people are always in a hurry because they are always busy with work. They don’t have enough time to sleep at night so they use the trains they commute to work with to catch up on some sleep. Women don’t have enough time to do their make up at home so they bring huge bags filled with big mirrors and cosmetics to do their make up on a moving and busy train. Men don’t have enough time to go to a hair salon and maintain a decent looking hairstyle, so they get their hair cut on a train platform while waiting for their transfer train.
Yesterday, I discovered this hair salon where you can get your hair cut within 10 minutes for just a 1000 yen, on a train platform in Osaka. I was very surprised but Yasu said it’s very common and that he himself had been to such a place for a haircut several times…

I always go to QB House. Fast & cheap.

Actually that was my first time to see QB on a platform. Good idea ;)
