I’m not known as a person who worries much, but I usually get a feeling of anticipation and anxiety whenever I go to get a simple haircut. I have been with the same hairstylist for over 10 years (we’ll call him John), but there are still some areas of concern when I ask him for a new hairstyle.
The same process goes on every time: I sit down in the chair, he puts the cape on me, then he fluffs my hair a little and says “what do we want to do today?” If I’m just in the mood for a trim, that’s easy, I know what to expect, he will just follow the same cut as last time and make it a little shorter.
However, the worry starts when I’m in the mood for a change, and, in fact, we have discussed this topic several times. He was complaining to me one day that a guy came in and wanted a haircut that made him look “daring.” What the heck does daring look like!? John said he had no clue, and basically gave him the same haircut as usual, and wasn’t sure if he would ever come back for another cut.
