Never trust a hairdresser who has short hair

- It's true.
I don't know what it is.
Surely it isn't jealousy?
I mean, how can it be in their INTEREST to lop your hair all off anyway?
But here it is, irrefutable evidence.........
Photo one- taken the beginning of August, up in Yorkshire:

Photo two: taken on a "Falconry Experience Day", 17th August, after my ONE INCH TRIM:


See what I mean?
No?
OK here's another "before" shot, taken same day:


Know what she said?
"Oh well, my inch is like that," while shaping about 3 1/2 inches with her finger and thumb.
It's enough to make you chew your own foot off.
Nice owl, though, isn't he? He's called Sid.

Wow. I think it looks great! :))
Remind me to tell you about the time I went from 3 1/2" down to 1 1/2" when I met the hairdresser from Hell.

Maybe they were the same person?
Mine said she was having a bad day... yeah, thanks for taking it out ON MY HAIR!!!!
*chuckle* (she says now, but THEN she cried all the way home)

Helena, my last hairdresser was a law unto herself when it came to 'an inch'!

I love the photo with the owl, isn't he gorgeous!

Thanks for dropping by my place, glad the ducks made you smile.

Hey Helena...I know what you mean! I hate 'trims' because they never 'trim', they CHOP. I think they make mistakes then try to level it out and as they do this they continue to cut cut cut until they finally level it off.

One good thing tho, no spilt ends!

I have the opposite problem. I always have to assure the hairdresser that its alright to use the clippers and cut may hair real short.

That's why I started trimming it myself, only going to the hairdresser when I wanted something different (like the last time where they lopped off many many inches.)
