Today I went for a €6 curly blow dry in the City Wax sister hair salon 'Dollhouse'. I had previously been there for an upstyle earlier this year (of which I subsequently took down after I left) so this really was last chance salon for them. The trainee stylist herself was so lovely but totally overwhelmed by the work and effort it takes to style my hair. I had pre-warned the secretary of my thick long mane when booking to ensure that the trainee was aware of what she was getting herself in for but alas no help aided her by splitting the workload.
Once we went over the two hour mark, I felt weak, bum-numbed and even Prince Harry staring back at me from the cover of Hello! magazine couldn't keep my spirits up. When I complained earlier this year about the upstyle I praised the stylist for doing the best she could within her abilities but slated the management for not providing adequate guidance and a helping pair of hands to get the job done efficiently. Today was the same scenario, 9 months on. In the past I have had people make excuses to my face blaming my hair type or length, but in a world of hair lusting and every second person having a head full of extensions, long hair blow-drying really should not be a big deal anymore. A blow-dry should not take 2 hours and 50 minutes. Period.
What do you guys think of my blow-dry? Was it worth the wait? Let me know!
Until next time Ducklings,
Love Vera Xx
