Ok- Today, I am going to touch on a subject that is taboo for most women.... haircuts at the five and dime. Now, before I start, I need to make it clear that once upon a time, I would go every six weeks like clockwork to get my haircut. I would drop 40-45 bucks.. and walk out. I was always pleased with the cut or so I thought at the time but NOT pleased with the cost... It was ongoing.. like cable... you can never have it paid off.
As time as passed, I have realized, it is hair.. does it really matter? It will grow if you get a bad cut. I guess the practical side has jumped into the driver's seat.
Just this past week, I decided it had been two months and I needed a trim. I do not make appointments, I go when the mood strikes and when I know I have enough patience to sit with the endless chatter. This time a dude cut it...I felt kinda lucky.. in the past when a dude cut it.. I was pleased... really precise on the wedge. I plopped into the chair, ready for my transformation.
I had high hopes for this 10 dollar cut. I told him to bring the front up to my chin and tighten the back up. He began to cut away and I noticed we did not engage in small talk... GREAT- he is paying attention to the job at hand... I had my eyes closed. When I opened my eyes, I noticed... he was not familiar with the "chin level" guideline... I was getting a little sweaty but decided not to say anything since he was the one with the scissors... I didn't want to get shanked. Time passed and I hopped out of the chair... he held up the secondary mirror for my approval... ok- I needed to focus on my pleasant "acting" skills... WOW- You hit pay dirt... great job sir.. UGH....Thankful he was not a mindreader... this is the real story " Holy Crap, This is a basic cut.. where did you work before? Lowes... looks like I got in a fight with a weedeater"...
So the question is...Do you get what you pay for? Does it make sense to spring for a haircut that cost as much as a weeks worth of groceries? My answer is ... Yes and No... because IT WILL GROW!
