    The two weeks I spent exploring the states of Assam and Meghalaya in northeast India were two of the most extraordinary weeks I’ve ever spent traveling. This beautiful region really opened my eyes to how diverse India is. I was blown away by everything from the captivating history to the friendly people to the phenomenal cuisine. I hope this video series inspires you to visit this incredible area of the world!

    With my time in northeast India winding down, I decided to treat myself and do something I’d previously done in both Kolkata and Shillong: get an Indian haircut, shave, and massage, this time in the historical town of Sivasagar. Haircuts in India are easily the best haircut experiences I’ve ever had, and they’re super thorough and relaxing. I couldn’t wait to get started!

    The barber shop wasn’t too small like the one in Shillong. I wanted to get a good fade and then a full shave on my face. After fifteen days of my beard growing, I wanted it gone!

    My barber started by giving me the haircut I always get back home in Miami, a skin fade. Then he cut some off the top with his scissors. I couldn’t wait to get to the massage portion. My body was beat after fifteen straight days of traveling and filming from sunup to sundown, so I was so excited to just relax and collapse. My barber was doing a great job! He was like a barber and a stylist!

    I had a lot more hair for him to cut, too! Just a year ago, I was practically bald, but now I have hair. Rogaine really works!

    In addition to Indian haircuts being so relaxing and thorough, they’re also incredibly inexpensive, especially when compared to the ones I get back home. I spend several times the amount of money there, and that’s only for the haircut.

    My barber was super serious as he worked on me, so I couldn’t help but play around with him a bit to try to make him laugh!

    Then he sprayed my face and began massaging my beard before he added the shaving cream. I prefer being clean-shaven because I sweat when I’m traveling through hot places and I get pimples under my beard. But when my beard is gone, it opens my pores and then I don’t have to worry about getting pimples.

    My barber started shaving me with his blade. I was already starting to look like a different person! I let him shave my mustache as well.

    The massage portion started with a head and forehead massage that was the absolute best! It felt so good. He even got my eyebrows, my temples, and the back of my neck! The cool thing about Indian barbers is that they’re all different, so you get different massages with each one.

    I was in heaven! The neck massage was really needed. There was so much tension in it and I could feel it all evaporating. It was so relaxing! It felt like he was massaging my brain! He was styling my hair at the same time.

    Then he started pounding and rubbing my shoulders. It felt so freaking good! Once it ended, I took a look at myself in the mirror. My friends said I looked 18 without my beard! I think shaving it is my Fountain of Youth! I felt so refreshed!

    The total was 150 rupees, or roughly $2.15 U.S. What an incredible deal for such a fantastic haircut experience! I gave him an extra 50 rupees as a tip for doing such an amazing job.

    I hope you enjoyed coming along with me on my third Indian haircut experience! If you did, please give this video a thumbs up and leave me a comment below. Also, please subscribe to my channel so you don’t miss out on any of my upcoming travel/food content!
