So it finally happened: I left the salon without first parting my hair all 3 ways to make sure it was even. After all these years of being so careful to check that my cut looked good from all sides…I didn’t. So can you guess what I’m doing today? Yep, taking it in to get fixed. I parted it on the side when I left which looked fine. Then I had a busy week. Saturday came by & we went over to a friends house but before that I learned that parting my hair down the center wasn’t an option. Dang girl.
I called the salon & they were so nice which I think a lot of people don’t expect. They let me know their hours & that they’d fix it free of charge when I come in. I think whenever someone calls about something like this they expect get to get attitude but it just isn’t so. They offer a service & they want to keep you coming back so they are more than happy to fix it. Thankfully because now the lack of even on the front of my hair is all I can see!
I just wanted to drop you guys this quick little reminder in case anyone is ever nervous about asking for a redo. My other job is writing about hair so it is constantly on my mind! I get asked about stylists like they are lions lying in wait quite often, waiting to pounce on your hair & attack.
Moral of the story: When you get 8 inches of your hair cut off, don’t be so distracted that you forget to check symmetry.
