Hair Craft and Ethiopian Coffee

A few friends and I recently stumbled into an Ethiopian hair salon in the Karm el-Zeytoun neighborhoods where we curiously explored this intimate setting. Hair is very much a craft for the ladies and getting it done is a full day’s affair accentuated with plenty of coffee, arguileh and gossip.ย They graciously welcomed our group in and allowed us to observe their Saturday afternoon ritual more closely with our cameras.

  1. Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚ We were on a BSP outing that afternoon and came across this shop completely on accident. They were very friendly and we enjoyed talking to them about their hair craft. Getting mine done would apparently be expensive with all my hair lol!
