What do you do when your hairdresser goes out on maternity, and the one you go to, in the same salon, while she is away, is much better – and then the old one returns?
Do you go sacrifice your really good hair [so good that men at work compliment you on your new haircut how often does that happen?] to not hurt your old hairdresser’s feelings [okay, the old haircut was not that bad it was acceptable], or do you take the dirty looks when you walk in and go to the new hairdresser after the old one returns – like I did the other day only I was devious and scheduled the appointment on the day I know the old hairdresser is off – and I still got the dirty looks. And mumbled loudly about the fact that I am going away this weekend and today was the only day I could fit in a haircut [while co-conspirator husband buried his face in a magazine].
I fear I will have to go back to the old hairdresser next time. Sigh.
Oh, and do not say go to another salon that is not an option – it took me 12 years to find a decent hairdresser in this town I can not go through another 12 years of bad haircuts interspersed with runs up to NYC to get them fixed.
