    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? 🀣.
        If only.

      • #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. πŸ˜‰

    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…

  5. #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.

    • #18 by tialys on April 28, 2021 - 14:37

      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 πŸ™‚ Fingers crossed for masks off soon!

    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.

  8. #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.

  9. #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.

  10. #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.

  11. #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…..

    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”

    • #36 by tialys on April 30, 2021 - 09:42

      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.
