In a town renowned for their long hair and unique styles, one hairdresser learns the value of her trade.

Genre: Fantasy


Everyone in town wore long hair in those days— children, grown folk, household beasts, beasts of the wild. Even trees and flowers bore long and thick filaments. Even the insects! The bumblebees bore the thickest and most luxuriant coats in all the country.

And those who lost their hair—by illness or nature— even they bore weighty wigs.

Those who never visited the region would ask why. Why did all insist on having such long locks?

The answer was a single word.
