Salon Lambis used to be written on the sign outside this barber’s. The name is not there anymore, as the sign has been painted over. For long time I was attracted by the very minimal but chic façade of the shop, the very rich interior and the vintage hairdressing tools inside. Finally, one day I decided to go and have a haircut so I could investigate, and ended up talking to the quiet middle-aged man working there.
Whatever, my haircut was a disaster, but I was happy to talk to the owner. Mr. Ashraf Ismail inherited this shop form his father who was working there before the original Greek owner leaves Egypt.
