One of the challenges of life on the road is finding places to get your hair cut. Brian has it easy since he uses clippers to shave his head (yes he actually has hair).
I’ve found that I’m happier with hair stylists in big cities, so this week I took advantage of our location and searched for a salon on yelp. I found Radar Hair & Records – they have 94 reviews averaging 5 stars.
I studied the reviews and stylist profiles on their website and decided I wanted Jen to cut my hair. It turns out Jen wasn’t available, but I was able to book an appointment with my second choice.
Monday after the conference we cabbed across town and walked into this funky space. Fast forward two hours, and I’m pretty unhappy. The hair color is off, and I can’t tell if the cut is any good because she did a terrible job styling it.
Brian said we could go back to the room and we could shave my head. I said ok since it would make a good blog post.
Sorry to disappoint, I didn’t shave it off. The cut isn’t as bad as it looked when I left the salon. No one will notice my issue with the color, and the cut is actually good.
This all strikes me as silly and insignificant. The reality is, we live in a trailer, and we’re usually in the middle of nowhere. No one is going to see me, and every other day I wear a bandana.
