Exploring the World One Haircut at a Time with @juuuuuuuun

For more photos and videos from Jun Kuwabara’s journey across the world, follow @juuuuuuuun on Instagram.

Taking only a backpack, his guitar and his hairdressing tools, Jun Kuwabara (@juuuuuuuun) of Yamanashi, Japan set out on an around-the-world trip this April. “I wanted to engage in something significant while I traveled,” says Jun, “and the only thing I can do is cut hair—so I thought I’d work on an idea of cutting hair for 1,000 people.”

Jun is now traveling through Southeast Asia, volunteering to cut hair for locals, orphans, fellow travelers and Japanese expats who find him through his blog or Instagram account. “I start out by asking around for places where I can perform hair cuts or places where people gather,” he says. The places Jun ends up can be in the most unusual locations for haircuts, such as sidewalks, parks, storefronts and even beaches. “I sometimes put up a sign for people to notice, but once I start cutting for one person, onlookers will usually ask for a haircut, too,” Jun explains. While communication is not easy in these foreign countries, Jun says that for the most part, his customers are happy with their new look.

Although there is no concrete travel plan in his trip, Jun hopes to visit India, the Middle East, Africa, Europe and South America in the coming months.

“We are torn between nostalgia for the familiar and an urge for the foreign and strange. As often as not, we are homesick most for the places we have never known.”
