Today I decided that I needed to get my hair trimmed. I usually get my hair trimmed a couple of times a year. I usually go to a salon that is average in price, but with my new frugal way of thinking and living I decided that this would be too expensive and that a local franchise hair cutting place would probably be OK. $13 for a hair cut, billy bargain right?
Everything started out OK, but as the lady snipped away I grew a little concerned because it just didn't seem that she was making even a fair attempt to cut straight. My hair is wavy so doesn't need to be cut precisely straight, but a little bit straight is always good, no?
I could tell about half way through that things were definitely not good. Did I stop her and tell her? No, of course not, I sat there chatting away as happy as can be, and here is the result. Not good!
Now, I am not vain by any stretch of the imagination, but I ask you? Even with the wave in it you can tell how bad it is. The ends look horrible!
You are thinking aren't you that I refused to leave the place until the situation was rectified right? Wrong. You need to know that I am one of the least assertive people you will EVER meet, so instead, I thanked the lady, payed, left a TIP, (!!!!) and walked out of that place as if I was the happiest customer they had ever had. I ask you, exactly what am I teaching my girls about being assertive women? (And about getting a decent haircut for that matter).
Now that I am home and have trimmed off the piece at the side that was an inch lower than the rest I feel a little bit better and have had a good laugh about it. R will be home later and he will be able to trim the odds and ends. Like I said, at least my hair is wavy so you can't really tell, (unless you cut hair for a living). I wear it tied back most of the time too.
This has me thinking though, maybe there are a few things that it does not pay to be so frugal with? I might splurge next time and go back to my usual place. Can't imagine what they will think when they see this though, probably that one of the girls cut my hair!
