British photographer Simon Weller captured some amazing images for his lates book “South African Township Barbershops & Salons” South African barbershops and salons are more than just places where you would get your hair cut. They are places which serve as community hubs and therefore are also called “informal barbershops”.  Before I spill out all the secrets I recommend you to buy the book. If you lover you barbershop art and design you should check out the Adidas Barbershop artwork
