Literally no matter what I say stylists assume I want a soccer mom hairstyle. I do not understand.
After he gave me a lovely soccer mom haircut I just said, “Actually I want something funkier not a soccer mom haircut.” He was so surprised. I was confused. I FEEL like I explained what I wanted. Anyway, then he got kind of excited and was taking about how conservative everyone in DC is with their haircuts, and he fixed it a bit. I might have to go back in a month or so and get more cut off, but at least I think he’ll know what I mean this time.
Yesterday I left a message for my stylist. I’m tired of running away from bad haircuts. I’m a grown up paying a ton of money, it’s ok to have expectations.
She called back today. I was honest, I said, “Well, I really hate my haircut, but I’m not really calling for that, I’m calling to ask what I need to do to get the haircut I want, because I felt like I was pretty clear and I’m not sure what else I need to do.” I then pointed out all the things that were different from what I asked for. She was really professional about it. She didn’t get upset. We just talked through it. She offered to cut the back for free for the next few haircuts until the front gets where I want it.
I didn’t feel like a dick. I felt like I was honest, but not rude. She was honest and helpful.
So, all in all, the haircut still sucks, but I’m not all worked up about it.
I’ve pinpointed what is wrong with my hair. It isn’t terrible, just not as good as it was. I don’t know what more I have to do to get what I want. I wanted exactly what I had last time and I had pictures, but I still got something different.
I don’t know. Maybe it is some sort of karmic payback for something terrible I did in a former life.
