…planning my escape
A work in progress
..but all i want is a trim
Categories: Thoughts


I don’t know what it is about going to the hair salon but I hate it. On second thought I can think of lots of reasons. First of all it’s a huge rip off for me. I have baby fine hair that takes all of 10 minutes to cut. All I ever want is a trim and somehow they like to make it into a big event. First the shampoo girl (tip for her) and would you like your fingers massaged as well (no). Then the depressing chair in front of the mirror where the light shines right through my thin hair and the “stylist” kinda looks at me in that poor you way. “you really should go shorter”. No thanks I say. I want one last chance to have long hair before I get too old to grow it. The last thing I want to be is an old Q-tip head. Then the sequential layering of products and the oven bake with the hair dryer. The final insult is the $50.00 or more bill for this abuse. Rarely do I walk out feeling good about the experience. So where am I going with this? Well just wondering what’s wrong with a society that pays more straight up cash to a hair stylist than a pediatrician. One more thing, I hate the salon small talk. Could go on but why bother….

    There’s a shop in Philly on grungy South Street I always wanted to try but was too vain to. It was called the Chop Shop. 10 bucks to have your hair lopped off by an angry-looking biker with crotchless chaps.
