Which will be nice.

Know you’ve looked forward to this day… hope all goes well. xx

Very well thanks Del, apart from the price – I’d forgotten how much it costs in England.
#4 by claire93 on April 27, 2021 - 19:11
they probably charged you for a complete restyling!
#5 by tialys on April 28, 2021 - 14:40
Possibly although, to be honest, the cut doesn’t look a whole lot different and of course I was booked in with the ‘Creative Director’ which probably adds on the pounds. Twice the price of my French hairdresser although it was a much more pleasant experience all round.

Oh! Okay. 😢 If I ever visit I’ll not plan on a 20 quid visit. Not that I could get that down here in the supposedly-less-expensive South.
#7 by tialys on April 28, 2021 - 18:02
20 quid? 🤣.
#8 by CurlsnSkirls on April 29, 2021 - 15:04
I so agree.

i haven’t had my hair cut in three years. I’ve taken to wearing it on top of my head lately, a la Katherine Hepburn.
#10 by tialys on April 27, 2021 - 17:53
Ooh! Very glamorous.
#11 by magpiesue on April 28, 2021 - 17:49
Hardly! Just practical. 😉
#12 by Emmely on April 27, 2021 - 18:32
Ha, I can so relate. My hair has never been as long as it is now. Waiting until I am fully vaccinated though. At least 3 more months to go, probably longer…
#13 by tialys on April 28, 2021 - 14:41
I’m taking the same approach with my routine mammogram. I just can’t face visiting a radiology department in a hospital until things settle down a bit more – although if it was urgent I would of course.
#14 by Emmely on April 28, 2021 - 17:08
The list with things that I’ll do once I’m finally vaccinated is getting long though…
#15 by craftycreeky on April 27, 2021 - 21:51
I had mine cut last week too, first one in 6 months!
#16 by tialys on April 28, 2021 - 14:38
Ooh, that must literally have been a weight off your mind. 🤣

It took me a second to realise that was the FRONT of your head…. Although my hairdresser has been open a lot longer than those in Europe, she’s still only open a couple of days a week. Consequently, I am now sporting an ear-length bob instead of a layered short crop.

They’re fully back in business here now – full opening times and everything. Still having to wear a mask though which drives me mad as he was very chatty and if I talk to much when wearing a mask I start breathing it in and my nose starts running, Hopefully, by the time I can afford another visit (😱) masks will be a thing of the past.
#19 by katechiconi on April 28, 2021 - 16:10
Hairdressers are pricey here too, but I’d rather pay than look like a badly-wrung mop, with bits all different lengths and other bits sticking out. My strategy for chatty hairdressers is to tell them I have a sore throat and can’t talk easily.

He is actually a very interesting guy – his son is a freelance documentary maker who has done some work for the BBC in Syria so we had a good chat about that.
He also has a dog called Stan so instant connection.
#21 by katechiconi on April 28, 2021 - 21:39
Oh well, in that case, conversation is obviously mandatory 🙂 Fingers crossed for masks off soon!
#22 by lifebyacompassnotaclock on April 27, 2021 - 22:46
That will be super … post a pic once done 😍
#23 by tialys on April 28, 2021 - 14:34
In the unlikely event I can get a good one, I might do.
#24 by Laurie Graves on April 28, 2021 - 01:04
Yay! I have been cutting my own hair for over a year.
#25 by tialys on April 28, 2021 - 14:34
Lordy! You must be a dab hand with the scissors – I wouldn’t be able to go out in public if I tried that.
#26 by Laurie Graves on April 28, 2021 - 18:21
I also think my hair responds well to a scissor cut more or less in a bob. Just lucky.
#27 by Born To Organize on April 28, 2021 - 07:00
I didn’t realize you were face on till Kate mentioned it. I can’t wait to see the new style.
#28 by tialys on April 28, 2021 - 14:33
Yes – I’m definitely in there somewhere.
#29 by Born To Organize on April 29, 2021 - 04:56
I’m looking forward to your reveal.
#30 by nanacathy2 on April 28, 2021 - 14:20
I bet you felt a million dollars afterwards.
#31 by tialys on April 28, 2021 - 14:33
Well, quite a few dollars poorer that’s for sure. I’d forgotten how much they charge in England. I might have to leave longer between visits than I used to.
#32 by Evie Jones on April 28, 2021 - 15:13
I’ve just had mine done and it feels entirely peculiar because they’ve cut so much. But I am less Yeti like, which is always a good thing!
#33 by tialys on April 28, 2021 - 18:04
Strangely, I had the opposite. He seemed very reluctant to take much off the length with the result that when I got home my husband said it ‘looks nice but not a great deal different’ which, for the price I paid, was a bit of a blow so I made him study the lovely colour under a good light and hid the receipt.
#34 by Evie Jones on May 1, 2021 - 15:54
As long as you’re happy with it…..
#35 by cedar51 on April 30, 2021 - 06:30
when our lockdown finally finished last year – I didn’t rush out as I knew plenty of other people would – I usually have buzz cut #4 but I hadn’t been for well on a month before lockdown arrived, and was just about ready to hit the salon again. People said it was “funky” and I guess it was but that kind of length to me wasn’t “funky” – I saw that person a day or so afterward the cut and she commented “still funky” and I said “yes but my usual kind of funk”

You have to go with what you feel comfortable with don’t you? I like my hair to be slightly messy and natural looking but hairdressers always want to send me out looking ‘neat’ then I have to wash and dry it again myself so I can muss it up to my liking.
