Hair Affair...

Snip, snip, snip!!!


After taking my own sweet time to get motivated for a much needed haircut, I finally decided to give my regular hairdresser a tinkle. My mum was getting on my case saying that I'd better do it soon, before he closed for CNY.

Should have listened to mum.

I tried ringing the hairdresser and there was no answer...

"Maybe they're busy. I'll try again a littl' bit later."

I tried again and still no answer. By this time, I was starting to get nervous. The horror stories of going to a new hairdresser came to mind. I recalled my 'Cleopatra' haircut...and the time when I had frizz when all I wanted was curls. I contemplated not trying someone new and just leaving my hair alone until we got back to Perth.

I waged an inner struggle with myself. I had listed a trait on my resume as being "Not adverse to change". Trying a new hairdresser was change. How could I be saying this and not living the talk? I would be lying to myself. Even though I could possibly end up looking like Albert Einstein/Diana Ross, did that mean that I should sacrifice my beliefs for my looks?

I ended up biting the bullet and coming to a decision.

The worse that could happen would be more money spent on rectifying the problem. And besides, how difficult could it possibly be to cut straight hair?

All I can say now is that I'm glad I tried something new and had that change in hairdressers. It was a different experience and I made friends with the guy who washed my hair (he even wished me a Happy Valentines Day! If any of you ever go to Peek-a-boo at the Curve, look for Alvin. He's such a nice guy!).

Sometimes, change is good. And being "Not adverse to change", helps as well. But the thing that helps the most is having a really good haircut.

Was his haircut good? I'm currently looking for a new hairstylist as mine is in Mid Valley and Ah Lei and I don't want to be stuck in a bad jam just to go to cut my hair. Maybe I'll give him a try the next time! And you should have posted your new haircut in your blog!

hey i go there too (only different branch). my fav stylist is shawn.

i've made the mistake of changing hairdressers once and ended up with a horrendous cut (not worth the RM65 spent i tell u). never again!

Faith: My stylist was Jessy. I just left it to her, I told her as long as it suits my face. Alvin was the guy who washed my hair...the haircut was only RM55...it was the hair treatment that cost a bomb!

Shopper Mom: Which Peek-a-boo do you go to? The one at TTDI or Desa Sri Hartamas? & I remember your blog about the cut...that's why I was apprehensive on trying a new stylist!!!

Moo, I got a solution. Wear a tudung. End of bad hair days - at least in public :-P (Mind, there might be `bad tudung days', though)

hmm.. I cut my hair in Aman suria by a dude who doesn't increase his prices just because it's CNY. Wash + cut (and really nice too) = RM19.

Few things can thrill a woman more than a good haircut experience! Glad you had a good one :)

I totally understand the part about not daring to try out a new hair dresser but yet yearning for that bit of difference another person can do.

Having said that, good for you that you went ahead and got a good experience out of it! Always good to try. Otherwise you will never know...

NinJaMoo said...

Pugly: Thanks but I'll pass...

Izso: It's different for guys...

Mer: You said it!!!

NinJaMoo said...

Izchan: Want another one?

Takakohazelnut: You are right. If you don't do it, you'll never know...
