A barber in Kabul said he was uncertain about the future of his business on September 9, after the Taliban swept into power in Afghanistan. More men are expected to grow beards, the hallmark of the Taliban, which means less customers for barbers. "We used to work with foreigners, and our clients were like the British embassy… our work was good, but now it is not working, our situation is bad," said barber Nazar Mohammad, adding that he was thinking about leaving the country if he could no longer maintain a livelihood.
