Itís a shame I have to browbeat my hair stylist to get the do I deserve, but I didnít want this do to do what the last do did, and I told her so. And she understood (although I think she had some doubts about me).
Well of course she understood me. Shorter, shorter, shorter. Iím not sure how many times I said it, but I told her that two days after the last time I was there, I needed another haircut. She showed me the clippers she planned to use on the sides, and I asked if she had any that would cut it shorter. She was aghast, but she brought out the number ones.
Then she asked if I didnít want to leave enough on top so that it would lie down and not stick up. I said that I didnít care if it stuck up. I told her I wouldnít be mad at her if she cut it too short. I was thinking there was no such thing as too short, and I was right. I knew she would stop short of a buzz cut, because of all the questions she was asking.
So, for the first time in yeeeeears, I have the haircut I wanted. For the first time ever I have the one I asked for. No, it doesnít look that great, but at least it wonít look ten times worse in two days. Number one clippers on the sides, finger length on top. Thatís for future reference. I told her Iíd be back in a month and that Iíd remember what she did right.
