Took DD1 to the hairdressers (never been there before). her hair is long and fine and gets knotty & caked in food so i wanted it all cut into a bob. they sat her on a wooden step thing on top of the chair (she is 3) so she couldn't sit back, looked pretty uncomfortable, though she didn't complain.
anyway the hairdresser did his thing then said 'hows that for length?'. he'd cut it just below her shoulders so i asked if he could take some more off as i wanted it a neck length bob. he basically refused saying that he couldn't cut it straight as she wouldn't keep her head still. he wasn't mean about her, he said he didnt expect her to stay still as she is three but he wouldn't be able to cut it straight.
i was pretty pissed off as i wanted it shorter and he then charged me £10! i was so tempted to say 'if you're only going to give me a half a hair cut then i'm only going pay half' but i didn't because I wasn't sure if i was being unreasonable and also i am a wuss!
so am i right in thinking that there are no three year olds around with bobbed hair? or is my hairdresser just being crap?
dd is now 4.6 and growing her hair but from 18 months to 4 she had a lovely bob, cut prob every 4 months or so. hairdresser did occasionally say it would be tricky but always persevered and it wasn't that tricky or i wouldn't have bothered.
