So yesterday I got my long hair sheared neck-length, with layers. It suits me, looks awesome, and I'm glad I got it done. There's just one problem... I left the chair with a distracting feeling of one side being longer than the other. I said so, and it turned out to be right, so the stylist had me sit back down so she could fix it. I watched in the mirror as she trimmed about half a millimeter off of the offending ends. It didn't look like she was going to go anywhere near fixing the entire thing properly, so I pretended to believe her and another stylist who said my hair looked perfect, and left for home. For the next day or so, the whole right side felt altogether thicker than the left, which turned out not to have been an illusion when my mom finally took a close look at it. She spent about 40 minutes fixing it to the best of her ability. And it's STILL off.

I'm sorry, but when you've spent about 45 dollars on a good haircut, I don't think it's unreasonable to expect it all to be the same length, for heaven's sake. Granted, my stylist did spend an hour cutting it. (Super fast, too... not that I was very enthused, because how can you get something completely right if you're going at lightning speed?) But I think there's something to be said about letting a 25-year-old style my hair. Give me a man in his late thirties next time. I'll be grateful afterwards for not having played guinea pig to a relatively inexperienced hairstylist.
