Yesterday I had a hair appointment, my first one since December 2007. Yup, can you believe I haven’t cut my hair for the last 6 months? And now I remember why - I was there for 4 1/2 hours. FOUR.AND.A.HALF.HOURS! What parent in the world has 4 1/2 hours to spare? Luckily, my sister offered to watch the girls (thanks sis!) so I knew they were in good hands.
The guy that I go to is THE hair stylist to the flight attendants. If I didn’t absolutely love my hair whenever I walk out of the salon, I would probably find someone else. I think the problem is that he schedules too many clients at one time. Today, for example, there were 4 of us. Even though he had 2 assistants helping him, it was still pretty chaotic and sometimes entertaining to see him try to juggle everyone around.
This totally reminded me of the game Sally’s Salon where you have to manage an endless stream of clients with different needs and temperments. If you take too long, your clients will refuse to tip you or worse yet, walk out - which is what I think the lady in the chair next to me wanted to do.
Anyway, it’s all over and I love the way it turned out. Sorry for not posting a photo but you know how I feel about taking pictures of myself. I don’t mind it if the girls are with me and I’m somewhere in the background. But front and center? I’ll pass.
So, how long does your trip to the hair salon take? Would you sacrifice your precious time for the perfect haircut?
