I finally broke down and went in for a hair cut. I drove all the way into town specifically to get a hair cut, but when I got there I found six people were ahead of me. I figured I’d wait, but the more I looked at that the others that were waiting for their turns in the chair I realized that none of them need a hair cut. They all had short hair.
It was then that I wished barber shops should be run like an emergency room. If there was hair triage I would have been immediately rushed in and revived. I would be the one in most need of help. All others would be considered hair hypochondriacs unless they had out of control hair like me.
I wonder if a hair cut is a weekly discipline for some. I swear that some people in the waiting area could not have had more than one week’s growth. I know it’s important to support your local practitioner, but be reasonable, you may be clogging up the system. Here’s the way I do it. About six weeks after I get a haircut I start looking a little wild again. It’s at that point I give it at least another month. This way when it is cut I get a noticeable difference.
