Did you get a haircut? (in Seoul, Korea)

The feeling of walking out of a fantastic haircut is right up there on my list of top favorite moments. I would place it between the final savasana of a yoga class and receiving mail (especially packages - hint hint) while teaching abroad. I love the clean and confident feelings a good haircut will leave you with. A great haircut can be a fresh start. 

Luckily a friend recommended Lucy shortly after my arrival in Seoul. She is just marvelous. She speaks perfect English and has impressed me with two haircuts since July. She is extremely professional, experienced and comes highly recommended from Koreans and foreigners all over Korea. I have heard of people from Busan traveling to Seoul for the weekend just for a swivel chair session at Lucy Hair.  

Don't (just) take my word for it, here are a few other tress success stories:

Devan Meserve, a New Hampshire native and St. Lawrence University alum, decided that after two successful post college years living and working in Boston she was primed for exploration beyond the East Coast. With encouragement from friends and family and Aclipse’s expert advice she landed an instructor position with Chungdahm April English. Devan is loving life in Uijeongbu: she is continuously impressed and entertained by her young students and spends her free time following Anthony Bourdain’s advice, “I’m a big believer in improvising and getting lost.”
