Same. I hate the whole waiting around and the experience of just burning time sitting there getting it done.
Thought i had made a breakthrough when i found a place that did booking via an app and promised to have you in and out in 20 minutes but alas they left me with a weird clump of hair on the back of my head that won’t behave and it means I’ll need to go back sooner than i normally would. Fuck sake.
I’m getting to that stage with my barnet where I usually throw the towel in and get it cut short. And when I do I’ll no doubt regret not holding my nerve a little longer. It’s currently at a stage I’d call ‘experimental’. Do really miss a v short tapered back and sides tbh.
Yep, love that awkward “Do I go for a sip, do I not go? I could go now, oh no, I waited too long, should I say something? No, don’t want to interrupt them. There’ll be another chance soon. Maybe now? I should go. Do I go for a sip, do I not go?”
Started cutting it myself during lockdown. Went to a posh hairdresser when I got a new job and paid £60 for them to tell me I’ve been doing a great job myself and they wouldn’t do anything differently and walked out looking the same as I went in, except a bit neater round the neckline at the back.
Not so much needing a cut (though it could do with a trim to get rid of some split ends tbf) but in real need of getting my roots done (and a toner on my balayage would be good too). Im concerned using root touch up spray every other day to cover my predominently grey roots isnt too good for my hair…
Do love a trip to the hairdressers, getting coffee bought to me and sitting doing nothing for a few hours…the dream. Also my new hairdresser is really nice too so enjoy a good chat with her.
Prefer long hair so only cut the fringe about once every six weeks. Quite good at it now. Went to the hairdressers for a trim to cut off dead hair and she cut off so much more, and i was literally sitting there watching it happen and couldn’t even say anything, literally was like this inside
It’s taken a bit of time for me to work out what I want - tbh I’m still not sure, I just know I want (and love) it shorter! I do also quite like telling whoever’s cutting it do their “worst”, as in, I don’t have a clue what would suit me, just do whatever you think would look nice!
Been shaving my own head for years, even before locky d. I really want to go to a proper hairdresser but I struggle as a non-binary person because men’s barbers scare me and women’s hairdressers charge silly money and I’m scared they’ll cut it too feminine.
I am a woman but have a grade 4 short back and sides and then a bit off the top. I have a regular guy I go to, at a barbers here in my village. I’ve got my hair cut in barber shops before. However I hadn’t got my shit together and my guy wasn’t available today to give me a cut so I popped into another place.
“Hello, would you cut my hair?” (gestures to head)
“No sorry we don’t do ladies”
“But I have grade 4 short back and sides”
“Nope, next door is the ladies place”
(I should explain that next door is perhaps a related business doing ladies cuts where I’d almost certainly get charged £30 for what they were asking blokes £10 for.)
WELL. I left pretty pissed off. I don’t want to go to a “ladies” place where they will wash / blow dry my hair. I don’t want to pay twice the price to have a simple hair cut just because I have a fucking uterus.
I’m pretty fucked off about the whole thing. I’m tempted to leave a shitty Google review for them or perhaps post on a local Facebook group to call them out, but I don’t want to be an arsehole about it. Perhaps I have to be an arsehole about it?
