  • Mad at the hairdresser!!!

    Hi all,just had to get this of my chest.Went to the hairdresser the other day,

    now have no hair left, i look like a boy.Good job I am not going anywhere soon!!!!!.I will stick to doing it myself,least then i only have myself to blame
    when it go's wrong.

    I find it helps to be very specific when telling them what you want...and specifically saying take off no more than xxxx or you want it no shorter than xxx.....If they ignore your clear instructions and you are left with something totally different, refuse to pay the full amount.

        What annoys me is that you have to ask and pay to have your hair dried nowadays, surely that comes as standard!!Why woudl anybody want to walk out the hairdressers with wet hair??

          What annoys me is you only what a trim and you still have to pay twice as much as a man does for a trim !!!!
          My hubby had a trim at the boot market today and cost him £5.00 and the barber blew dry his hair to !!!!

            Not always true! At my salon we charge £9.50 for a gents cut, which includes spraying it down, cutting and drying it. For ladies the same service is £10, mainly because ladies generally have more hair than men! A wash, cut and blow dry is different though, for gents it is £12.50 for ladies it is £20. For gents we allow about 20 to 25 mins, for ladies 45 mins, you are basically paying for more of my time and the fact that most ladies have their hair tonged or straightened whereas I don't think I know any men that have this done!! Hairdressers should certainly listen though and cutting off too much is inexcusable, its a sure fire way to ruin your reputation! I always encourage my staff to take off less than the customer asks for, they can always cut more off but its a bit of a pain trying to stick it back on!! Just my opinion as one of the enemy! Selina

              I always encourage my hairdresser to do that too... its so embarrassing having to watch a grown woman (me) throw a bad hair tantrum :lol:

                I was a 'saturday girl' before I left school and although they never let me loose with the scissors I managed to pick up enough idea to cut my families hair for years.
                I usually cut mine too but on the few occasions I have been to a hairdressers I have often ended up disappointed.
                Once I ended up with the right side much shorter than the other as the male 'stylist' was too busy chatting up the lady on my left. Another time I asked for a particular style, longer on top than at the sides and she just went ahead and cut it the same length (3in) all over.
                A couple of years ago I was persuaded to go along with my son's girlfriend on the morning of a wedding and it was the biggest disaster ever. I took a picture of the style I wanted but happened to mention that I liked her style, so without asking she cut it like hers. It didn't suit me at all and I ended up wearing a hat all day and evening.

                  You can borrow my Ozzy Osbourne wig. I wore it at a show once to give me that rustic, earthy, Prince of Darkness look look and the sales rolled in.
