I have been living in Japan now for the last 3 months and my hair is starting to look like it needs a cut. But I have never been to a Japanese barbers before so as you can imagine I am a little nervous about it.
I have a couple of questions about getting you hair cut in Japanese:
What are common/useful words/phrases that can be used when getting your haircut?
Specifically it would be nice to know how to say I want certain parts of my hair a certain length and I would like to ask if they can thin it out (because my hair is ridiculously thick).
Aside from those two specific things are there any other useful phrases, words or anything else that would be useful to learn before going to the barbers in Japan?
