normally I come out of there bopping. Fréderic the hairdresser is little and gay and the salon is astrewn with orchids and does great coffee and the latest magazines.

Imagine my horror when he suddenly stopped cutting half way through and blowdrying for all he was worth - I looked in the mirror and lo and bloody behold - I had turned into Courtney Lurve. I told him I did not like it and he went all quiet and cross in a forced smiley sort of way and started cutting again. I now look like Princess Diana, all I need is a floated peter pan collared maternity dress to complete the image of her in the mid eighties.

I told him I would sleep on it (literally) and if needs be go back and he could go a step further and transform me into Annie Lennox.

Is it a bit flicky? Could you flatten it down or zap it with straighteners?

Perhaps it's a good cut but just blowdried wrong? wash it and see.

Respect to you for saying you didn't like it! I am too much of a scaredy cat to ever fess up-good for you.

I got him to cut the flicky bits off (he kept saying, 'but I love it, just love it....'). Am meeting dh at the cinema in town in an hour, if he turns round and walks out I know the cut is scary.
