This Weeks Whinge Winner

Emotional Haircut

Hey, hairdressers. Stop being ageist!
Just because I am over 35, wear comfortable weekend shoes and weather appropriate clothing, don’t write me off. Give me the haircut in the picture I show you. Give me the colour I describe in detail. Are my words just white noise in the background as you lock on to the style you think I should have (at my age)? Do you intend to make me look like a frumpy toadstool?
If your entire repertoire is the ‘menopause bob’, the ‘Emmerdale helmet’ or God help me, the ‘Theresa May’ with a plumb semi permanent, then please declare that up front and I’ll waltz my old arse out and keep my $200+. Something you may wish to understand about my generation is that we are too polite to complain to your face once all the length has been taken off anyway and we are ruined for another 3 months. We prefer to whinge online and take our business elsewhere.

    Menopause Bob on Pause - do not feel alone. I have experienced the same issue time and time again over the past five years. Salons are quick to take your money but can not cut hair for the older generation. I asked them to cut my long hair into a long fringe, short back so I can tuck my hair neatly behind my ears for gym. I have had this style before (refer to Robin Wright in House of Cards). I left the salon with a short fringe, short back and sides!! I am not a man moron. And they wonder why I have not gone back. I am 55, not 70 so stop giving me a haircut that makes me look older? Who does that? The worst is the salon blames the previous salon..but can do no better. I have been to three salons in 6 months..! All useless. If I wanted a mans hair cut I would go to a barber. Do what you are supposedly trained to do..cut hair as per the person hair type and as per our request. Believe it or not we know what we want..and know what suits us..a mans haircut does not work for me!
    Sooooo Over Bad Hair Salons

    Hmmm...I haven’t been to the hairdresser for 2.5y now - but simply just because I can’t afford it. But reading your comments now seems like I’m not missing out...good luck that you do find ‘the one’ !
