The only barber in Yesilyurt

Omer Yalcin has been the only barber in Yesilyurt since 1999. It is an unassuming little salon in the middle of the village. All of his diplomas are hanging on the wall which testifies to the seven years of training Omer has undergone to become a barber.

Umut who is an apprentice sweeps clean the floor from hair and makes coffee for waiting customers. In a white display cabinet on one of the walls hangs a lot of razors. It is the customers’ own blades with their names inscribed.

Opening hours are from 8:00 in the morning to 20:00 at night. The exception is Thursdays when all hair salons in North Cyprus are closed.
