I am positive this will be an ever-growing list.
1. Helicopter parents
You know the ones. They’re all up in your business, telling you how to do your job, because clearly they know what’s best for their little angel. But they probably won’t discipline him or help him to sit still.
2. Overbearing wives / girlfriends
No offense to those members of my gender, but seriously – Girls, let your man have his own say in his haircuts. He’s an adult. He should not have to ask you if it looks ok. When I ask what he wants done, he should not have to say “ask her.” He should be able to look in the mirror and judge for himself whether or not he even needs a haircut, and then if so, whether or not he is pleased with it.
3. Perfectionists / Nitpickers
And no, I don’t mean nitpickers in the literal sense. I prefer that people with lice don’t sit in my chair at all.
I mean the people that tell me I’ve “missed a spot” when I’m clearly not finished with their cut. If you are still sitting in my chair, wearing a cape, and my shears are still in hand, that’s called I’m not finished with your haircut yet. If I take you up to the register to pay, and you notice that one side is longer than the other, then yes, I did miss a spot. But that doesn’t happen since I double, triple, and maybe quadruple check it. Let me do that before you butt in.
I wish I could complete both sides of your head simultaneously, but as of writing this, I do not yet possess that power.
more to come…..
