Île de Beauté
No one has, nor probably ever will again, cut my hair as well as a certain coiffeur did in the small town in the north of France where we used to live. One look at these photos and it's easy to understand, much to my dismay and split ends, why he packed up and retired to Corsica. Not surprisingly, the Mediterranean island and French region is nicknamed Île de Beauté.
