Avoid the barbers.
I am furious. I have, for the first time in my life, decided to grow out my hair. I had the misfortunate of being assigned the elderly barber, no name was given, whose station is directly behind the front counter. I asked him not to cut the top, just to take up the sides and back. I said he could thin out the top a bit as my hair is very thick.
Instead, he takes two inches off the top while I thought he was using shears to thin it out. "My mistake" he says.
I'm disgusted that I tipped him out of pity, but now I' m back to where I was in July in terms of growing my hair out.
I will be writing a letter of disapporval tonight and sending it to the salon.
