No job is perfect all the time.

When you're in a position that places you in close proximity with the public, I imagine that it gets even more stressful.

There are so many people who do things for us every day – servers, mechanics, manicurists, massage therapists, and certainly hairstylists.

While you're sitting in the chair, getting a trim or changing your color, have you ever wondered what your stylist is really thinking?

Whisper shared a little insight that I think you ought to consider.

1. Sometimes the Small Talk Isn't so Small

Sometimes the Small Talk Isn't so Small

Think back to all the stories your stylists have told you over the years.

What was real?

Were they all made up?

2. Why Would Anyone do This?

Why Would Anyone do This?

I mean, I suppose it's safe enough if you have a competent stylist or shampoo person, but also … well, that's just awkward.

3. Awww ...

Awww ...

That's kind of sweet.

Okay, some people could possibly view it as creepy, I suppose, but I like having my hair played with, so I'm not one of them.

4. The Anxiety is Bad, but the Attitude is Good

The Anxiety is Bad, but the Attitude is Good

Being I suffer from anxiety, I empathize with this and I hope the confession-maker can control her or his anxiety.

However, I think every professional should be sensitive to the happiness – or lack thereof – of a client.

5. Nope, Nope, Nope

Nope, Nope, Nope

That is awful and I am so, so sorry.

I cannot imagine how much hair stylists have adhering to them after a day at work.

Hell, after an hour.

6. Screaming Might Help

Screaming Might Help

But yeah, you should probably always cut off your dry split ends.

7. Understandable

Understandable

However, as I'm sure most stylists also understand, hair is personal.

You have to make it sit right on your head.

We don't mean to undo your hard work, we just have to get back in our hair groove – especially if the cut involved a dramatic change.
