The worst part about moving to a new city or town isn't the apartment hunt—it's finding a new hairdresser. Because trusting someone with your best asset (Gisele would agree) is never taken lightly, our hairstylist becomes a friend, a confidante. He or she knows things about us we wouldn't dare tell anyone else—other people in our lives just wouldn't understand. Below is a list of all the things your hairstylist knows about you and promises to keep hush-hush.
The Natural Texture of Your Hair
The only two times our natural texture sees the light of day? Right when we get out of the shower and in the stylist's chair. Lucky for us, she picks up the hairdryer in minutes. Nobody look!
Your Pixie Daydreams
The pixie may have taken over Hollywood, but let's be real. Not many have the guts to try the cut. And as much as you fantasize about it and talk your stylist's ears off, you're not that daring.
Your Love of a Good Scalp Massage
Just like a cat purrs and a dog wags his tail, you agree a shampoo scalp massage is pure ecstasy. Our stylist knows to never talk during your "me" time.
Your Absurd Concept of What an Inch Actually Is
That's an inch? You meant, "cut a quarter of an inch!" Your stylist knows just how much or how little to cut, even when you don't articulately request it. "This much please," is all she needs to hear.
Just How Early You Lost Your Virginity
Your hair color virginity, that is. Mom wouldn't allow it, but you went ahead and booked the appointment. Your hairstylist just couldn't resist a challenge.
You Play With Your Hair All the Time
You hide it well. Just a dab of hair oil along the ends will camouflage disastrous split ends, but she knows the truth. When even the slightest bit of stress pops up, you twirl your hair and pick your split ends like it’s doomsday.
