I've been getting my hair done at a local beauty school, and thus far it has worked out well. The instructors are there to smooth over any mistakes made by the students, and the price is about half or less what it would cost to go to a salon. The only drawback I have seen is that it takes more time. Until yesterday, that is.
Some years ago I was telling a friend of mine that I had gotten my hair cut at a local franchise, and that it was okay, but the girl did a terrible job on my bangs (part of the problem this time, too.) The next time I saw my friend she told me that she had called the salon and told them about the bang cutting thing, and that they had assured her that they would schedule someone to come in and review bang cutting with the hairdressers.
I looked at her in complete shock. SHE called the hair place to complain about MY haircut. I found that very unsettleing. If I had felt that strongly about it I would have called them myself. The girl who cut my hair was the daughter of a friend of mine, and I surely did not want to cause any trouble. Did she give them my name? Could I ever show up there again without being looked at as a trouble maker?
"Gracia," I asked, "why would you call a solon to complain about something that did not happen to you?"
She looked at me in complete shock (do you see a pattern here? We two must be easily shocked.), and said, "You do know we own that salon, don't you?"
Since I really have no idea who owns that beauty school, I guess I"ll play it safe this time and just complain about my hair here on my blog.
