Sounds to ME like a prime opportunity for someone to get to Germany and be the go to short hair layer. That's just what I'm thinking.
Meanwhile...I'mma go in this girls shop with her broken hairdryer and some barber strips and see what I can do until I get to Amsterdam.....le sigh..... come on sistas! We gotta do better! (btw...I hate the word "sista/sistah" spelled out. It sounds so , like, white...)
