Women and hairdresers have a very intimate relationship. They fix your hair and make you look gorgeous, and if you are like most women you talk openly about pretty much everything and share all your secrets while you are getting pampered.
But what if your eye starts to wander while at the salon and you spot another stylist that really fits your fancy. They cut so well, the colour is gorgeous, and everyone looks like supermodels and rockstars after they are done.
Would you cheat? Have your tried?
But more importantly would your salon let you?
Recently my husband came home from Fiorio Spa after a particularly bad haircut. And it’s not like he didn’t go prepared. He asked me to find a picture of a haircut I would like for him so he could get it from his stylist. I picked out two good haircuts he’d had before at the salon, in various angles and sent him away.
When he came back he had an ugly, not stylish or cool or anything haircut…just plain blah.
Later on in the week he told the story at a dinner party about his bad haircut. He called the salon and asked them to find him another stylist to try out since his favourite guy had left recently and his replacement didn’t give the kind of haircut my husband wanted. They agreet to let him try someone new and then set up a time for an appointment with “the new guy”. But when my husband arrived for his appointment he was stalled, and left waiting for way longer than normal. Why? Apparently they had paged his hairdreser to come and cut my husbands hair so he wouldn’t lose him to another stylist.
I was horrified when I heard this! And it seemed like such a dumb thing for the salon to do. He already had a haircut with this guy and didn’t like it, so why subject it to him again? Why not let him find a new guy at the salon, and at least keep the business in house.
But no, instead they pulled a sneaky move and now my husband is sure not to return.
What do you think? Is it okay to try and see another stylist in the same salon? Or is it better to just find a new salon altogether?
