A Visit to the Hair Salon

Anxiety Level:                  Depends

Level of Difficulty:            Also depends

Result of Blowing It:        Really depends

My daughter, Kate, and I visited the hair stylist.  Guys visits barbers, gals go to “stylists.”  I need hair maintenance every three weeks.  My regular maintenance includes a 5-on-the-side-with-scissors-on-top.  I’m usually done in 11 minutes.

     DAUGHTER: Dad, my hair needs work. 

     ME: Okay, you go first.

     STYLIST: Do you want a style, trim, or cut?

     ME:  There’s a difference?

Kate walked to the chair and quickly made friends with the stylist who promptly pulled out a reference book containing photos, styles, colors, curls…a ton of information.  Not only was I the only guy around, I was the only person.  So, I bided time in the waiting area and thumbed through magazines.  Forty-five minutes later Kate was done.

ME: Uh, looks nice…what did she do?

DAUGHTER: You can’t tell?!  Hey, what’s that you’re reading?

ME: [Silence, embarrassment]

DAUGHTER: Is that Cosmopolitan?

ME: Uh…

Guys can learn a lot reading Cosmopolitan Magazine.  But I sure wish they had photos of a style, trim, or cut (and gave advice on the right thing to say after a female gets their hair done).


PS Gals, comment below and enlighten me.
