Hair & Catalonia

Hippy, hairy... CatalánCatalonians, and even more specifically Barcelonians, like to call themselves people with style. But their hairstyle is something rather special.

Moreno, macho, y vano could be a way to describe the Catalan style, dark-featured, macho, and vain. Catalans (I’m not sure about the rest of the country) maintain a very weird hair-fashion and take a lot of pride in it. Here’s a quick guide to look local:

1) Leave your beard for a week or so, and always keep it that length
2) Shave your head (or at least keep it relatively short), and leave a lock of hair in the back.
3) In addition to point 2), and optionally, you could turn the lock into just a few dreadlocks
4) Get some piercings in few random places around your face (lips for boys, nose for girls).

Honestly, we used to make jokes about German hairdos, but I’ve never seen such a terrible hairfashion so widespread in any other country! My hair’s growing longer these days…should I also…? No thinking about it!
