Thematic Photographic 43 - Reflective
Hosted by Carmi at Written Inc
Unfortunately in order to have gotten a really good photo of the mirrors, I should have had my tripod and set the camera from a different angle, the mirrors are very long, but I am in the bottom, so I had to crop severely. This is the best of the few I took and I ain't going back.
I took this at the hair salon from hell. I should have know better when I walked in the door and saw who would be cutting my hair as I have never, ever gotten a good cut for my curls from a person whose race is admired for their perfectly straight black hair.
This woman gave me split ends for Odin's sake! She asked me what I wanted, I showed her a photo in the book she handed me and then she proceeded to do an entirely different cut. Fine, whatever, it grows fast and I have had it shorter, so that didn't bother me. It felt after the first few minutes like she was going to give me the world's worst mullet, but then once she had shaped the edges and the top, she cut the length from the back with electric clippers - I am saying she took off two to four inches of growth with the clippers, not cleaning up the bottom edges. She missed a couple of spots completely and left my bangs ragged and my sideburns at two different lengths.
When I went back, the manager cleaned up the bangs and the strays, tried to texture the top properly then tried to even out the sideburns. They were still off when I got home and the texturing is less than good. The manager didn't even offer a portion of my money back or a discount on my next cut or an apology for her mistakes. "Well you got a second cut for free." Um, I shouldn't have needed a second cut! I evened out my side burns myself as there was no way I was going back there!
Have a good day all.
