To share each other’s hair
Common French phrase meaning: to share hair with another person
What it really means: This expression, used in France, means that you are working alongside or with somebody else; an accomplice almost. Hair does not even come into the equation. The French phrase dates back to the 18th century and comes from a Gascon term meaning ‘half’. Now you know why there are two accomplices, making one whole!
