As of recent Alexandra has been keeping my appearance within the bounds of propriety by calling a hairdresser who is originally from Uzbekistan, where beards are also common. Write to firstname.lastname@example.org and she’ll provide contact details. I believe this hairdresser, whose name escapes me at the moment, even speaks a few words of English. The best thing is that she makes house calls for a price that seems “fair” against the background of what things generally cost in Moscow.
Gasan, a barber from a small town somewhere in Geogrian mountains, where men of respectable age MUST wear beards. Gasan works at Magnolia &Co, Ulitsa Zelenodolskogo 41, 8-927-318-6677, 172-7671, 172-4961, 172-5650.
THIS INFO IS ~2 YEARS OLD. CALL BEFORE HEADING THERE.
