HAIR SALONS CAN feel like the height of luxury as long as everything goes according to plan, that is.
If you know what you want, your stylist is on the same page as you, and the coffee is free-flowing; sure, what’s not to love?
Well, a lot if the first two elements of that previous sentence are working in opposition to one another.
If you’re one of those people who brings along a photo, stresses what you do and don’t want until you sound vaguely irrational and sit with your heart in your mouth for the entire duration of your visit, it’s likely you’ve been the victim of a scissor-happy stylist in the past.
i have so much social anxiety!!!!!! when i go to salons for haircuts if the hairdresser decides to shave my head bald i wouldn't even have the guts to say no and when they ask me if i like it i'd say "thanks", go home and cry for a month— jinji (@stephjaurigue) May 24, 2018
If you’ve ever left the salon afraid to make eye contact with strangers, wishing desperately for a hat and cursing the day you were born, you will identify with the following 11 tweets.
Take a look at these…
