I made a mistake. I knew I shouldn’t have done it at the time, but I did it anyway. I let a friend start cutting my hair and I’m really unhappy. I told him I was a difficult customer and I was really picky about my hair. I have made my cutting desires crystal clear. I’ve taken in pictures, talked about how I style it, discussed lifestyle, products, etc. but I’m still unsatisfied. Today I called him to take him to lunch so we could talk about it. What I really want to do is find someone else to do my hair and remain friends with Duane. He wasn’t available for lunch but was willing to listen to me. I told him our friendship meant a lot to me, that I knew I was a hard customer, that I didn’t want to hurt him but that I was unhappy. He seemed to understand and told me he would either fix the problem or I could move on. I made the silent decision to move on. We ended the call on a good note and I began thinking of alternatives.
Then he called a few hours later. Now he’s offering to meet me tomorrow on his day off and fix my hair. I feel like I should offer him the chance to fix it, but I’m scared to lose more hair in the process. I really don’t mind it being a little shorter in the summer, but I don’t want to lose so much I can’t do anything with it. Of course, I can’t do anything with it right now! Valerie thinks I should move on and my gut says I should, but I feel bad not honoring Duane’s offer to fix it.
Advice anyone? Have you ever been in a similar situation? Does your hair mean as much to you as mine does to me ( I doubt it!)?
