Dear One Tough Muther,
A friend of mine is a hair dresser and has a salon out of her home. Once or twice I have gone to her but have ended up with terrible haircuts. Also the word in the neighbor hood is how she is not very good at her job. She keeps asking me to come down to her house for a haircut, in which I tell her I’ve been going to the same salon for years and I am happy where I go. She doesn’t get it. She’ll say she is my friend and who can beat a half priced hair cut after all! I’m left speechless sometimes and tell her well maybe next time. I don’t have the heart to tell her she is not good at her job. Most of her clients are older lady’s that get the tight perms done or trim their short hair. I really don’t know what to tell her.
Run don’t walk to your favorite salon. You are going to just have to tell her the truth or stretch it a hair.
Maybe something like, “you know how picky and weird I get about my hair and if for some reason it isn’t exactly what I want, i don’t want to upset or hurt you by being a jerk” hopefully placing the blame on yourself, will help.
Most times the difference between an good hair cut and a bad hair cut is a few months and hating you hair for that long and being upset with the person who did it sucks, so again I say, run don’t walk to your favorite salon.
Huge Muther Hugs,
One Tough Muther
