Stupid question about getting a haircut...

I am in desperate need for a haircut before DC2 arrives (36 weeks this week).

I phoned the hairdresser and booked an appointment, I said that I do not want my hair washed, they have booked me in for a cut and blow dry, surely this means that they will wash my hair?

I don't want my hair washed as I cannot stand being touched this pregnancy and I hate the position you have to lay in.

Can I go to the hairdresser with wet hair and tell them that I do not want my hair washed?

Sorry for the silly question but I have developed a hate for people touching me when it isn't necessary grin

You need to ask for a 'dry cut', if they offer this. Usually a cut will be a 'cut and blow dry' or a cut only - in which case they will still wash your hair and cut it wet but only rough dry it for you rather than blow dry and style it.

Not all hairdressers will do a dry cut as it makes it harder to be accurate. If you have a supercuts near you then I think they offer them.

They should just be able to do a dry cut - any decent hairdresser will do this and personally I actually think you get a nicer cut this way anyway!

Im disorganised so always book late. When they can't fit me in for a cut and blow dry they usually damp my hair with a water mister. You then have a Damp cut which then needs a bit if a blow dry
If you don't like to tell them about not liking your head being touched you could always say that it's too uncomfortable to sit in the hair wash chair and just ask then to dampen it by spraying. Or go in with wet hair

A hairdresser I used to go to wouldnt do a dry cut (I think they were just mean, couldnt make as much money doing a dry cut) but I'm sure if you ring them first and explain how you're feeling they'll be sympathetic and do all they can to help you feel ok

If you come in with clean (dry) hair, the stylist could spray you with a water bottle to get it wet enough to cut properly. Speak to them on the phone when you book and any good hairdresser would be happy to do this for you!
