They visited a barber shop but were stopped in their tracks before they could say Vidal Sassoon.
"They didn't understand us and we didn't understand them so we ended up with bad haircuts," explained Rolando Fonseca.

A Porsche 911 turbo will be roaring its way to teenage Russian striker Dmitry Sychev for his 35 minute show against Tunisia.
Sychev set up both his country's goal after coming on as a substitute and was voted man-of-the-match in a poll of Russia's football fans.
That earned the 18-yer-old the £60,000 sports car which an oil company says they will give to the best Russian player each time they win at the World Cup.
There is a slight problem - officials are not sure Sychev has a driving licence - but he will get the car anyway.
The Republic of Ireland have been given a slap on the wrist after becoming the focus of the intense security at the World Cup.

Fifa head of security Walter Gagg said: "Ireland transported not only their players but also fans and we had to intervene.
"We need absolute full control to protect the teams."
