The sharp, steel barber sheers lay unattended on the tabletop. Bottles of hair cream arranged neatly besides it. Several plastic combs bunched loosely in a container. On the walls, medium sized- posters of men sporting short hair cuts were pasted symmetrically, decorating the barber shop. There were even new ones of famous Bollywood heartthrobs. The red, stainless steel Takara barber chairs were first purchased in 1966. Purchased by its founder, the late P.A.

With its bright red signage, the Stylo Hair Dressing Saloon, was first established in 1940.

Huge sandstone cliffs rose up from the ground like a solemn cathedral, weather-beaten to reveal fluid lines on its flat iron […]
