Hairdressers in Germany are very talkative, and most topics are fair game for a conversation.
You might talk about your family or theirs, about your school or work, about their school or work,
what's going on in the business... Talk might also shift to what's on the news, because hairdressers
always have a wide range of magazines to browse while waiting, plus the radio is typically playing in
the background. Don't be offended if people start talking about various starlets or about the royal
families of other countries, or even about politics and whichever politician was involved in a scandal.
Conversations at the hairdresser, as with taxi drivers, are easy, not too deep and typically not crucial,
so it's the ideal situation to practise German without fear. Besides, you probably won't have the option
of speaking any other language, because hairdressers even in bigger cities don't usually have the
chance to learn a foreign language well.
