So took my daughter to the mall to get her hair cut/styled. I've been thinking about cutting my hair or at least a different style- it's down to the bottom of my waist right now. So while my daughter is being shampooed, I started looking through the books.
One of the older (and by older, I mean that she was older than the other stylists) stylists comes over and asks if I was thinking about getting acut because she was available. No harm, she's trying to fill her work time and make a tip- so I start telling her that I've had it long for a while, but will go back and forth (long /short). But that I needed a cut that I could style with only one hand.
Why? because I have a disability and can't hold my one arm above shoulder height. I try to cope and most things I have adapted, but I can't hold both arms up way high to say hold a dryer and a brush- it's one or the other.
What did this bitch say?
Well, I wouldn't bother if I were you. Any style worth having you HAVE to use both arms doing. Just leave it however since that's all you can do with it anyway.
So I said:
So basically you are saying that anyone who isn't perfect with 2 arms can't do their hair in a flattering style.
And she responded:
well, I'm not saying, I'm just passing along the information, you can try, but you'll just look bad. But you should be used to not being able to style your hair.
Needless to say I did not get my hair cut there and since daughter was nearly done I let the other person finish hers, but I will never go back there.
What the fuck? How fucking rude.
