Because it seems to be the done thing today? grin

For fun: Tell me your most unreasonable hairdressing stories. (Either with YABU or the Hairdresser.)

I told my hairdresser I didn't want a fringe anymore and rather than taper it out she just lopped it all off and I had half a centimetre of hair sticking straight up all across the front of my head. It grew vertically for a good 6 months....

There was the time I treated myself to a posh salon for a haircut only to be asked so many questions about why I'd moved house I felt like I was on trial at the stand, had my hair washed in freezing cold water ('the boilers broke!') some 'treatment' plonked on my hair, dreadful haircut and £10 extra for the 'treatment'. I didn't go back! Thanks, Toni and Guy Chester!

That's the only really bad experience, although I've just moved salons as my old salon are obsessed with layers to 'frame my face.'

My face should not ever be framed!

I had a fringe cut in at a 'luxury' salon. Badly. It had loads of wispy bits that were too long. I had to pay for it to be tidied up at another salon.

YANBU. It does seem to be a theme today. I hate getting haircuts with a passion. I tried a new salon a few weeks ago as my usual one had got a bit pricey. After consulting me on what I wanted the owner disappeared for quite some time whie I had my hair washed. He then proceeded to cut my hair while sniffing and touching around his nose constantly, while talking constantly about himself. He definitely didn't have a cold.... Every now and then he would stop and say 'I like your face'

It was actually quite a nice cut, and I wasn't particularly disturbed or creeped out - I've seen a few things in my time, but it was very odd. Don't think I'll be going back!

Hairdresser said did I want a conditioner on my hair? I said yes. It was on for an hour and cost me £30 extra! I could not really afford the extra money and I was an hour later for my babysitter shock hmm

Good god -- do they still charge extra for conditioner? And for £30 quid I'd expect it to be infused with white truffles.

A huge hairdressers opened in town a few years ago.

I walked in off the street and asked when they could fit me in. They said they could do it there and then and called the junior to take me to the sink.

She washed my hair and told me to sit next to about 4 other customers, who all had wet hair.

35 fucking minutes later, we were all still sat there with wet hair, waiting for a hairdresser to become free angry

I ended up kicking off once I'd been sat there for 50 minutes, had a big row with the manager, threw my gown and towel off and dramatically flounced out of the door.

Except the Velcro bit of the gown was stuck to the back of my jumper. It got caught in the door as I slammed it, and I went arse over tit in the middle of the busy high street blush blush

I am very guilty of the 'Have you been cutting your own hair?" and me looking outraged and saying 'God, no!'

What I really want to say is, "Yes, I have, and it was glorious. (Please fix it.)!"

Arguing with a Chinese male hairdresser who didn't understand the concept of subtle highlights on dark hair. I think he wanted me to go for the badger look... Last time I'll ever buy a Groupon for my hair!

I hate having my hair washed over those uncomfortable sinks...

So that you're painfully balancing your head at the most painful angle possible!

I had the worst haircut by a so called hairdresser when I was 18. I had asked for a trim ( my hair was long- past my bra strap) and I ended up looking like one of the Gallagher brothers. Seriously. It was awful. It didn't help that my friends kept calling me ' Liam ' for months afterwards. hmm

When I went into the hairdressers for a cut two cuts ago I explained to her that I wanted a jaw length bob (it was just above my shoulders at the time) and she said
'oh no I don't think so'
To which I enquired
'Really what do you suggest? I'm open to other ideas'
She replied
'I think you should go longer'

Left me slightly puzzled; as it turned out she was still planing on cutting my hair and not trying to sell extensions.

Not so much unreasonable more just odd.

I have a fused neck so cannot move my neck at all. In theory it should be impossible to make my bob longer at one side than the other. My head is always straight. Regis Devenhams (now shut) managed it! Complained - I must have had my head tilted eerr no confused
