With so many other words to choose from, this is the one my wife picked.
It all started about 14 years ago when we were dating but had gone beyond the “hold your stomach in” stage (or was that just me?).
My then girlfriend was about to get her haircut and happen to reveal the price.
To cut a bit off the bottom of hair?
How hard can it be?
A style – yes, I understand that’s complicated.
But a trim???
That’s £5 – what’s the other £70 for? Coffee? Biscuits? A chat?
My incredulous rant must have been long and, well – incredulous.
Sometime later, my nervous partner was sat on a kitchen chair holding a brush.
I was holding the scissors.
Admit it, you’re desperate for me to tell you of some terrible disaster, you gory bunch 🙂
But I’ve been doing my wife’s hair now for 14 years. It turns out that trimming a bit off the bottom is not particularly difficult to do. Occasionally, I’ve even styled it.
Of course, there’s been the odd “Oops!”
It’s never the word my wife likes to hear when she’s sitting on a kitchen chair holding the hairbrush when I have scissors in my hand.
This is my go-to word when the “snip” has been slightly (or more than slightly) off from where I had hoped it would be.
But in all my time as a hubby-hairdresser, my wife has never needed to resort to a hat. She even married me 🙂 So, I can’t be THAT bad.
Plus £75 a month for 14 years is a whopping £12,600 saving that could go towards a magnificent wig if I really messed up!!
Sometimes our greatest fears are not nearly as bad as we think they’ll be. The occasional “oops” moments help us learn to be better at what we’re trying to do.
Never be afraid of putting yourself out there or being a bit different.
Outside the box is where you’ll learn to be your best.
I help unfulfilled people who are lost or stuck at a crossroads find their right path, so they have courage to live a life they’ll love.
If you’d like a chat (with or without scissors), I would love to hear what you want to achieve.
