A Long Overdue Haircut

United States
November 17, 2015 9:05am CST
I'm finally going to get my haircut this afternoon. It's long overdue and I'm almost embarrassed to go since my hair looks horrible. I don't know why I wait so long between appointments and I always say I won't wait so long the next time. So, here we are...not only didn't I go sooner but now it's even later than my usual tardiness. Some people love going to the salon and being pampered but I never found it a fun experience. Maybe I just don't like sitting still for so long and I hate when the beautician is constantly engaging me in conversation. Anyway, in a few short hours my ordeal will be over. Do you enjoy those salon visits?

No, I don't like those visits I mostly trim my own hair.

@wetnosedogs I can't see well enough to do it that way.

I could say I am like you.. My hairstylist is a very good friend.. since she owns the salon and spa she is always busy .. I hate going to the other younger people.. I hate the fact that they need to make a conversation ., I just love to sit still and relax. I only go when my friend can take me in.

It took me awhile to find someone I liked to cut my hair so I always make my appointment when she can take me. I certainly understand how you will wait for your friend to be available to do your hair. I wish I knew someone who would come to the house.

Yes, but only if the haircut is good when I get up. A simple thing I do before I pay is to make my next appointment. This way, I don't go too long between trips.

I'd like to make my appointments ahead of time but I'm not always able to plan that far in advance

@Marilynda1225 Okay, some people will think I am nuts, but I have a system that makes my life easier (remember, I live alone and am retired). Each Tuesday is for socializing. I do not make appointments this day. Wednesday is for movies. I like Fridays for appointments. The other days are open. I do what the mood brings up.

No, I do not enjoy visits to the hair salon, they have always cut my hair shorter than I ask, and I prefer it a certain length, so I end up moody. I hope you will be happy with your new style. :-)

I'm lucky enough to have found a girl who cuts my hair like I want.

I hate going, but don't mind it quite as much since I have so little of it left it doesn't take long to cut. I go one a month.

I hate going to a saloon, I hate this so much that from several years I cut my hair.

I have not gone to a salon in over ten years. I haven't had the need.

I found the only way for me to keep my hair looking half reasonable was to make an appointment for the next haircut as I left from the last one. Having said that, I haven't had a haircut for six months. I thought while we were away would be a good opportunity to let my fringe grow back and try a longer hair style. But I'll need the ends trimmed soon.

I enjoy getting my hair done, its about the only time that it looks the way it is supposed to look.

Yes I wait too long too. I try to go every other month. I don't usually mind going.

I too am not fond of the salon. I dread going, but I also need a haircut. My hair is kept short, but it's longer than the usual I have it.

I told the hair dresser a little over the ears and make it short. She did me one better. She gave me a 100 percent complete buzz cut. I looked like I just enlisted into the military. It snowed white fuzzy hair all over my smock. My wife loved the look but I was no longer a cool rock star from the 60's. lol.

No I get so bored getting my hair cut I probably only go once a year. My hair long so it doesn't really matter too much. I know some people who go every month it must cost them a fortune x

I am more like you, I always wait too long before hair cuts, my own sister bugs me about it. But I can't help it, I hate sitting there too and one never knows how one is going to look after the cut.
