A few weeks ago I noticed a striking lady in a restaurant. I really liked her hairstyle, the color and the cut. Feeling bold, I complimented her hair and asked where she gets it done. What do you know, she is a stylist. She gave me her card and told me where her salon is located. I planned on making an appointment in a few weeks.
Well, today was the day. I was excited to check out a new salon and cute up my hair. I called this morning and a very pleasant girl told me that T. had an opening next Tuesday. I was thrilled, so quick! She started to take my information and I said I was a new client. Pause. I sensed something. But what? The pleasant girl asked if I was aware that T. charges $100 for a new client haircut? Then $60, on up for color.
After a pause, I stammered, "Excuse me, did you say $100 for a haircut?"
And she did. Seriously.
I mumbled something about T. giving me her card... but I didn't realize...and refinancing...and payment plans...and thank you very much, buh-bye.
Now, my next question is who pays this ridiculous amount for a haircut?
