My last salon visit was on the 1st of March 2013 (almost 1 year 4 months ago). You all know I do my hair myself at home so on this visit I was only going to get my eyebrows done (threading)- been trying to grow them out for a while now. I get them done at the same place I used to get my hair done.
Turns out that salon is no more. They moved and I didn’t even know. Serves me right for being gone for so long In its place was a clothes shop. I thought of calling my old hairdresser when I got there but I didn’t even have his contacts…lost them when my phone was stolen last year! So as I was standing there trying to figure my next move, I heard someone rushing in my direction and shock shock, it was him. Jimmy my old hairdresser!
He led me to (another) nearby salon and told me that he now worked there (I didn’t even get the name of the salon…next time). He was being very elusive when I asked him where the other guys moved to. Can’t blame him.
So of course he asked why I no longer go to him to do my hair – he could see I was freshly relaxed and couldn’t keep his hands out of my hair, all the while I was silently praying that he wouldn’t feel the relaxer burn scabs 😮
He said my hair was longer and that I should go in for a rollerset. I was rocking a 3 day old braidout that he clearly didn’t like. He asked what i had done to it….If I had just washed it and left it at that. I think he was just hating 😀 I wasn’t offended. He just really really wanted to do my hair, and he does a good job, I’ll give him that. Am now toying with the idea of letting him do my hair because i really miss getting rollersets and sitting under a dryer 🙂
Anyway, he recommended someone who could do my eyebrows. I was antsy about letting someone new do them because one lady did it wrong one time and for weeks I walked around looking like I was in a permanent state of shock!
