In Search Of A Good Retro Hairdresser
At Tiki the other Saturday, a few of us were talking about hairdressers and how no-one knows how to cut our hair the way WE want it. Miss Mandy says she hasn't entered a salon in 5 years and Joey Backstreet proclaimed that it had been 15 years since she entered one. Here in lies the problem if you don't understand where I'm coming from. You go in wanting your hair to look like this: The lovely Miss Lola Cherry Cola from Man's Ruin Burlesque... And you come out with your hair looking like this: Now, Jenn has got a decent head of hair-this is not the point we are making. The point of is: SOME OF US DO NOT WISH TO BECOME STEPFORD-ISED! The problem with hairdressing these days is they are trained in 'trends'- what's in this very minute and we are going to make everyone look the bloody same! Hairdressers who come across this page (and I doubt you will because you're too busy putting layers into girls' hair and giving guys that faux mohican look- damn you David fucking Beckham), extend your range and your talents by seeking women and men who hair dressed and/or barbered in the fifties and sixties. Little do you know, there is a demand for this type of coiffing!! One of the girls who was part of this conversation has done something about it and is currently studying hairdressing so she can give retro hairstyles for the people out there who are crying out for it! I had to coach the teenager who cut my hair last time on how to cut my fringe! So I now have a hairstyle that is a mix of the above 2... I guess it will be a work in progress but I am dreading my next visit and wondering what the fuck I will leave with.... And if you have any complaints about the gratuitous boob and bottom showing- tell someone who gives a fuck. I don't.
