Cutting hair

There is spiritual beauty and material beauty.  Which do we think of when someone says this word?  I stopped in at a salon near my house, where music was playing and the stylists were friendly (and willing to help me with my photography).

“The lover’s teacher is the Loved One’s beauty,
His face their lesson and their only book.
Learning of wonderment, of longing love their duty,
Not on learned chapters and dull themes they look.
The chain that binds them is His musky hair,
The Cyclic Scheme, to them, is but to Him a stair.

-Rumi, as quoted in The Seven Valleys by Baha’u’llah
