I always say that finding a hairdresser is like finding a boyfriend/partner. When you find one that works for you, you do all you can to keep that relationship going, because that hairdresser – male or female – will make you look good every single time. And finding a good hairdresser that works for you, is about as hard as finding a life partner!
So, when you find one that works, the relationship is all roses and beautiful for a while. You let your hairdresser have free reign over your hair, you try out different hair colours and styles at his/her hands, you pay big bucks to keep the relationship going, and you feel great. However, human nature is such, that when the relationship has gone on forÂ a while, you’ll get bored and feel the urge to stray and try something new. So, you cheat by going to another hairdresser.
When that other hairdresser botches up your hairstyle or colours your hair a wrong shade, you run crying back to your regular guy only to be admonished for doing such a foolish deed, and then he/she will rectify the damage for you and you gratefully hand over your credit card at the end, swearing that you’ll never stray again.
That was me.
I have a hairdresser I’ve been going to for a few years now. He understands my hair and (most of the time) I walk out of the salon feeling like a million bucks. He is based in USJ which is where IÂ used to live, so going to him for haircuts were pretty convenient.Â But now I have moved 25km away and going to have my hair cut is starting to feel like a chore. What with the petrol, toll charges and haircut cost, I’m going to be spending a pretty penny every 2 months.
So, now the 7 year itch has struck me. I am now in the market for a good hairdresser in KL that I can go to without having to fill up my car with petrol and making my hair thing a whole day affair. I’m used to paying about RM65 for a haircut and wash, so anything in that price region is fine with me, as I’ll be saving on petrol and time.
Do you have a great hairdresser you’d like to share? I need to trim the jungle that’s trying to take over my head.
