The Barber's Assistant

By dandeakin
As far as I could tell this guy was spending his Saturday morning down at the Greek Barber's talking to each customer as they sat down for a hair cut.

He had his plastic chair positioned next to the Cutting Chair, talking to the customers as they came through. Quite a character.

I can't remember what gem of wisdom he was offering when I took this, only that he was quite a character....

I like the way he is in that brief moment of thought - looking away in mid conversation.

I remember barber shops, hairdressers, or whatever they called themselves...back in the days when I had hair.
He reminds me of a younger Ludovic Kennedy - it's the hair, I think.

I asked him, and he told me that he had no intention of having his haircut that day...
