It's Just Hair

We love the shop displays...all the fun fashions and 'models'...

Here is a costume shop...

For all the Spiderman fans!

Maybe the fun colored hair is just for display, not sure if you can buy the wigs.

A bride with no hair!

You have seen the beautiful 'real' hair on many previous blog entrys...thick, shiny, black and usually long for the traditional styles, and shorter, fashionable cuts and colors for the adventurous.   We have seen a couple fun streaks of blue and fushia, too.  Just a little...nothing like these wild wigs.
Yes, there are good hair salons here in Cuenca.  Women can get a good haircut, a good choice of colors, including the fun ones, as well as the usual highlights and perms.  Prices are substantially lower than US salons and the quality is generally really good.  You can also buy most of the brands of hair dye you're used to the States, if you want to do it yourself.

 If you're in Cuenca, you can ask around for salon recommendations. Sometimes it helps to bring a picture of what you want (and bring your Spanish words.)  If the style/cut turns out not to be what you're looking for,'s only hair!  Thankfully, it grows out (or buy a hat) and you can try another place next time.

For men, same goes...


  1. Wow, some of those mannequins are a little bit creepy, aren't they?!
