Thank you to all who posted. I agree with Pelagic's mother, and as such, there is no magic bullet, especially for a girl with hair that needs to be cut well to look decent. So it's still either
- Learn yourself and teach your partner how to cut each other's hair
- Find a hairdresser when needed and risk a bad haircut
Sometimes the second option works great. I can say this about Turkey
: I found a hairdresser, who cuts my hair for about 6 USD. She is a fifth generation hairdresser, learnt from the early age, and she does absolute magic - better than any salons I tried in North America. And that, considering that my hair (VERY fine) is very different from regular Turkish. [You should've seen me after I attempted a haircut in China
And it's even better if you're a guy in Turkey
: as far as we understand, there's a tradition for guys to go to a barber, who would wash, cut, and style your hair, trim your beard/shave you, remove nose hairs, and trim your eyebrows. And all of it for a ridiculously small amount of money
(unless you go to a fancy place). And barbers in Turkey are open late, very late. We frequently see places still open at 10 or 11 pm. And with lots of customers.
