Now I understand that technically this is a grammatically incorrect word and also the fear of barbers but I have a serious case of hairdresser fear!
I really do, I have no idea why. I've never had any hideous haircuts but I would much rather go and see my dentist than sit in that evil chair with mirrors everywhere!
I have long curly (read unruly) which used to be pretty and straight (read manageable). I just find it frightening to sit in the chair with an artist who wields scissors. I was the girl who cut her own hair (only ever a straight line, nothing too tricksy!) and I have not visited the demon's chair in over 18 months.
However, the boy (and if I'm honest myself) felt that it was time I did something with my hair. (I would have donated the length if it hadn't been so hideously out of condition.) So I "valiantly" found a lady who didn't scare me (had hair that I liked!) and she was so gentle with me. She explained everything she was doing and why and when she finished I really felt amazing.
I have gone from crazy banshee lady to sleek (although still with a few curls), layered, side sweeping fringe lady. No pictures yet as I'm still quite loving the anonymity but I am sure they will come. Trust me I am one happy bunny.
I think I have found my hairdressing angel. Thank you, Amy.
I am still slightly fearful of the chair but the fear is slowly dissipating.
Anyone else have the fear? Also any tips for taming curls?
