I was in Civic today looking for a somewhere to get a haircut. I saw a sign for “Hair in the City” at Centrepoint. I walked up the stairs, however they were fully booked. I noticed another small hairdressing salon called “The African Look” also on the first floor of Centrepoint.
It was empty. Admittedly I wasn’t after an African look but how hard can it be to cut a “short, back and sides”. I wandered in and asked if I could get a haircut. The lady politely told me, “I don’t cut Caucasian people’s hair, you will have to go across to Hair in the City”.
Unfortunately I am a white man.
I ended up getting a haircut at Christies (near Gus’s Café). It seems Christies will cut your hair no matter what colour you are.
