I hate people!

So hate is a strong word. Maybe seriously annoyed by is a better choice.
Whatever!

I am a hairdresser of 21 years. I am good at what I do, and I love doing a great job and making people happy.
But, why? Why do people not understand. If I am cutting your hair, don't try to run your finger through it, unless you want to lose one. If I am putting foils highlights in, please stop moving your head around while you talk, unless you want bleach spots all over your head.
And , please, please , if you are coming in for a pedicure, I should not have to spend 15 minutes one each big toe , digging out dirt under your nails. Seriously though. I am not a servant , and if the dirt under your nails is that bad ( even after soaking your feet) you are nasty.
There are no number of layers, so stop asking for that... They are short, medium, long, they can be texturized or razored. But don't ask for 2 layers, that makes no sense.
Stop asking me why all this grey keeps coming in, when you color it all the time. The shit grows at the root not the ends.
And if you are going to color you hair at home, expect that when you come in for me to fix it, it will cost you money.... Sometimes, a lot!!! You should of just come to the salon.
I love my job, and will always do my best job. But, common sense helps you have a better service.

FUCKING THIS.

I love being a hair dresser, but somedays I just want to rip what little hair out of my head. Certain clients I just want to stuff into the tanning bed and "break" the hinges so they melt in there.

I worked for a podiatrist when i was in college. Part of my job was to take the history, get the patient set up in the room, remove their shoes, and soak their corns, callouses, etc. I had one lady who had MULTIPLE dead roaches attached to her feet. The smell was out of this world. 

The dr took me aside and apologized. He said he did not pay me enough to have to put up with that and if we had another patient like that, he did nto expect me to deal with it. It was GROSS.

I had worked in the service industry just enough in the past to agree with this.

How long have you been doing hair? ( New client)
(Me) 21 years
(Client) do you have any experience with color
(Me - in my head ) no, in 21 years I've never done a flipping color... Really?

Teenage black girl with afro comes in.

"I want my hair white. Like silver white. And silky straight, like the Pantene commercials."

"Well I can tell you right now you aren't going to get white hair."

"Why not?"

"The potency of chemicals we would have to use to achieve that would fry through your hair before it ever lifted that high, with your texture."

"I'm sure it will be fine, just do it anyway. I want hair silver white, not yellow like Miley's."

"Are you sure?"

"Yes."

I decide I don't want to be held responsible for this one and let our salon owner do this color.

Relaxed the hair first, then passed her off for coloring, since she didn't want to wait our recommended week between chemical treatments. Within the hour, half her hair is missing and she's screaming to high heaven about how she's gonna sue us all.
