@Skye3girl   That is one thing all stylists should know and that is how to cut different types, textures of hair.  They go to school for it and should be taught.  It's good you can cut your hair.  Give yourself a Big Tip!  LOL

The stylist who cut & did gorgeous comb thru highlights for me for 20 years worked as a RN for years.  Go figure!

 

I absolutely have NOT been able to replace him!  😭

My mother went to see Rosemary's Baby, came home and cut all my hair off.

I have been going to my DH's barber since the end of the shutdown.  I have short hair and he gives me a great cut.  I was frustrated with my stylist because it never seemed even and with the barber it is totally even.  There are very few barbers left in my area.  We drive to a nearby town about 20 miles away to go to ours.

@Drythe   An RN?  Well, was he a barber also?

@KatCat1  So is your hair short?  Layers, or all one length?

I think it’s odd to not be happy with a stylist’s services. I’d speak up and ask for it to be fixed. I have a lot of layers and a razor cut finish. I can’t imagine getting that done at the barber shop.

When I was 17 or 18 I had short hair., short but a really cute and sharp cut. 

 

One day I was at my boyfriend 's house and he decided to go to the barber with his Dad to get a haircut.  Kidding around, I said I really needed a trim and his father convinced me to come with them to the barber.

 

It was the best haircut I ever had, I went to that barber for at least three years, until I moved away.  I've found that many stylists at salons don't listen to what you want  or care if you're satisfied.  Their prices are not justified.

My nickname was 'Pure N Simple" but now I've switched to 'decaf'.

@stellabystarlight..it was interesting to read about your Sassoon hair model days! Also, u mentioned you worked in NY Fashion Industry. So did I. I worked on
Seventh Ave in Garment District as a Sportswear Buyer. This was quite a long time ago in the 80’s + 90’s. Lol.
