I took my boys for haircuts on Saturday at Famous Hair and after a brief wait my 16 year old's name is called. My first clue he was in trouble: I hadn't seen this woman before. With three boys, we're in there more than some of their employees.
I explained to the stylist that he wanted a trim--1/2 an inch-- and that he'd already cut his own bangs--they MIGHT need evening up a bit.
Somehow, when we're leaving, his bangs are a full inch shorter and look like they were cut with a weed whacker. I could've done better myself. Shoot, a five year old could've done better. What the heck. She went to school for this? May I suggest a career as a, I don't know, anything else? I didn't complain--what's the point, the hair's gone and fortunately he doesn't care about his hair anyway. Still.
I once went to a salon for highights and came out with red hair. RED! My middle son, sporting an adorable bowl cut, went in for a trim and came out with a hacked up crew cut. Where are they training these people?
