I hate going to the hairdresser, it is on a par with going to the dentist. You have to sit very still in a big chair and someone you don't know invades your personal space and does things to your head with sharp metal stuff.
Two years ago a hairdresser at an establishment that i won't name, butchered my hair by cutting layers into it, I would up with a 'Bob Mullet' long at the back and like a bob round my face. I was furious since it was a fortnight away from my wedding and I had to change my hairstyle to hide it.
Eventually I found a hairdresser that I could trust and they did what i asked them to do when i went (trimmed neatly to get rid of split ends with no experiments!) Sadly this establishment shut down in the Spring leaving me Hairdresserless.
I thought about just growing out my fringe but it got to the length of my top lip and was annoying me excessively, and my hair had split ends so I figured I had better go and get my hair cut properly again. (In the past a home haircut had left me with an uneven Bob which was also very distressing and not to be repeated)
I tried a new establishment in my town. I explained to the girl who was going to do my hair about the disaster two years ago when someone cut layers in and I DIDN'T LIKE IT BECAUSE IT LOOKED STUPID.

She commenced to cut my hair, cutting off the split ends and cutting my fringe back to  a length when I didn't look like a Shetland pony. She said "Your layers are split, you need to trim the splits off  so they will grow out" She then proceeded to CUT THE LAYERS BACK IN, EVEN SHORTER THAN BEFORE!
I was not pleased.
All I want is to have long hair, all the same length with a fringe that just hits my eyebrows. That isn't difficult.
It will take me a further two years to grow out this new set of horrible short bits that have given me another 'Bob Mullet'
Maybe my idea of my hairstyle doesn't fit some people's aesthetic, maybe some people think I would look better with a different hairstyle. However, it is my hair, I am very attached to it and I want my hair to be long, not a collection of different length whispy bits that is now too short to go into a bun or any other sensible hairstyle.
I don't look like myself, it tickles and annoys me when it is loose, I am very upset about it.
The most irritating thing is that everyone will say how much they like it and how it makes me look better.
I wish I felt better about it.
This is why I hate going to the Hairdresser.
