Do You Cheat On Your Hairdresser?

bad haircut 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? Photo Credit: ehow.com
How Much Change Is Too Much?

Most girls love change. We change our clothes a few times every morning, our accessories every day, our hair a few times a week, and sometimes our male companions monthly and jobs and homes semi annually. But how much change is too much? When the major components of life - living, loving and labouring - are always changing, it may be too much. There’s something nice about constants in life. Like work you've maintained for years, friends you've had since grade school, or homes that have been in your family for generations. It says you're rooted, comfortable, and reliable. Maybe your vacations change, or your Tuesday dinners, but you're not always in flux. People know what to expect from you...and you've passed the test of time in many situations. You don't have disposable friends, temporary housing, or castaway career ambitions. Like most girls I love change. I thrive on it...it fuels me up and gives me energy. I find nothing more exciting than travelling to foreign soil and being thrown in a land of surprises, where everything is changing and dramatically different than what I'm used to. I've lived all across Canada, moved to France without speaking more than 20 words of French, and migrated to Asia without a clue of what I was getting into. But when I got engaged so much change was on the table. Was I going to change my name? Was I going to sell my apartment, move into my fiancés apartment, rent another one, or buy a house? What about a family...were we going to try right away? Were we going to have a big wedding, a small wedding, a destination wedding, a themed wedding? Were we going to have another one in Argentina (where my fiancé is from)? And that was just too much change. So for now, I'm going to get married and move into my fiancé’s apartment after we get married. And when, and only when, those changes have settled in I'll be ready for more change.
