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.
Think back to all the stories your stylists have told you over the years. What was real? Were they all made up?
I mean, I suppose it's safe enough if you have a competent stylist or shampoo person, but also … well, that's just awkward.
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.
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.
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.
But yeah, you should probably always cut off your dry split ends.
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.
Over-washing is bad, after all.
I know, I know, it's bad and it's no one's place to judge, but that's such a small, passive aggressive tactic. That lady probably felt unbalanced afterward and didn't know why.
This is kind of really unacceptable, though. I would go apeshit. (Author's note: yes, I said the s-word.)
As many of these other confessions have shown, stylists are like pseudo therapists. I myself hate keeping up small talk with stylists, dentists, doctors – I'm an anxious introvert, it's all on me – but when I have a good relationship with my stylist, especially, even I've found myself unloading. That has to be exhausting.
All day, every day. If you're on your phone right in front of someone else, it's going to happen.
I can't abide people who talk down to others. Stalkers, don't condescend to other people, it's not a good look.
Seriously, what do you expect the other person to say? Though, I did once have a stylist tell me I didn't tip him enough – I didn't ask, he just kind of told me.
I'm gonna take a seat for this one. Not going to say a word.
That baffles me, too. I don't do that. Well, can't. I can't do that.
I don't … I don't know what to say to that. It's sad on several levels.
No one should feel this way about their job, no matter what they do. If you wonder about this, it's never too late to do something about it.
I would laugh my tail off if I opened my eyes and saw my stylist doing this.
Does this open to your eyes to what your stylist is thinking, or perhaps how you act as a client? And stylists, please weigh in – share your secret thoughts.
