Miscommunicating With the Hair Stylist

Before I left L.A. for Vegas I had my long time stylist take front, side and back views of her finished work. I’ve used them with varying degrees of success to find someone who could approximate the results.

I did a little research and selected a shop because they use scissors instead of dog clippers. Showed the dude the photos, he studied them, we talked about length and then he went to work.

I realized my mistake before he was finished, but by then nothing could be done. When he asked how long I wanted it, he took hold of some hair on the side of my head and held it out. I mimicked him, held my hair out to its full length of 2 inches and indicated take off half. He heard ‘half’ as in half-inch.

I can’t remember the last time my hair was this short. The weird and unexpected thing is I kinda like it. I’ll post a photo. Eventually.
