In the afternoon, Shamsi Salon fills with sunlight from the wide windows that overlook local rooftops. The beams travel across warm wooden floorboards until they hit a tiled mosaic that decorates the front lobby. Beyond the reception desk, staffers take their time trimming, styling, and coloring hair while chatting with their regular clients. The crew also carefully prunes unwanted body fuzz or dandelions blossoms using the ancient Persian technique of threading.
