Skopje: Our neighborhood: the hair salon in our building

It was pretty amazing to have a hair salon in our building.

We could get my daughter's hair washed and cut for 200 MKD (less than $4) and a blow out for me for 200 MKD.  We could also get my daughter's hair braided or colored (using a shampoo in/out color package that we found at the DM pharmacy (like a CVS or Walgreens in the US).

Neither of the stylists spoke English, but it is remarkable how much can be communicated with gestures.  (and, invariably there were other clients in the shop who could help translate for us, especially when we were trying to arrange an appointment)

They were wonderful, and we sure will miss them!!

(It is time to get my daughter's hair cut again. Now that we are back in the US, it will cost us 6 times as much to get her hair done (and we will have to drive 15 minutes there and back) - and that won't include hair braiding -- just a wash and cut.  We were so spoiled!!)
the night we went out to Fashion Week Skopje

our first visit to the salon, back in early February

we saw packages of shampoo in/out hair color at the DM pharmacy (like a CVS or Walgreens) that my daughter wanted to try on her ends, for an ombre look
