Hairdressing Saloon under tree

Speaking of self-development, pictures of a hairdressing salon that has been set up under a tree have got many massively reacting.

The picture sighted by YEN.com.gh on the Facebook page of Nana Tea showed a hair-drying machine connected to a socket that had been mounted on the stem of a tree.

Also on the tree was a TV and a poster with different hairstyles.
