Fear Of The Haircut
If I had a penny for every time a client in my chair says “Can I just get half an inch off please?”, I wouldn’t have to work again! There are two types of clients:
1. The one who regularly has a haircut so is always been envied for having picture perfect hair.
2. The one who gets a trim once a year and has split ends up to their ears. I used to be this person, and when I did get a trim, it was only the tinchiest littlest bit. This however, is a waste of money and time. It is something you need to come to terms with.
This is what you think you have:
But this is the reality:
It is a fear for some like the dentist is for others. But, what you don’t realise is, leaving it uncut is doing a lot of damage. The past few years we’ve seen over-layered hair and really shaggy ends in fashion, but the hair revolution right now is about having that ‘rich girl hair'; glossy, expensive looking and perfect from root to tip. It’s not that hard to achieve either.
The important thing now is not about an on-trend haircut, but having your hair in a good conditioned length whether it’s a bob or really long. As long as it looks strong and full, the length is not important. Even if you have to take 4 inches off that you’ve worked so hard to get, an instant happiness comes out as soon as you see the fresh beautiful hair you can be proud of.
