Across the street from the MTC is a barbershop called "Smart Cuts." Haircuts cost 15 CD (equivalent of $5 US). When you enter the shop, you are asked if you want your hair "dressed up?" That means do you want a haircut. If you said that you are anxious about having your hair touch your ears, the response is "Oh, you don't want to worry your ears?" Say "yes, I don't want to worry my ears." And voila, now you are trained in the art of receiving a haircut in Tema.
