GRANICZNE CIĘCIE BORDER CUT
Situated right next to the German border, the village of Osinów Dolny boasts 43 hair salons. Seven euros will get you a short trim. While older hairdresser Halina and her unmotivated assistant Andżela wait for business, Halina dispenses unsolicited wisdom. The customers usually come from the other side of the border, the older ones among them still remember a time when the village was known as Niederwutzen. Over the course of German-Polish history, the place has certainly seen its fair share of changes. Business is waning, competition is getting rougher. But chitchatting while the scissors snip away will never go out of style.
