Well, I finally plucked up the courage to ring a Ladies Hairdresser and booked an appointment for Saturday morning. After a lot of debate I decided to use our local Hairdresser which is very close to where I live. In for a penny - in for a pound as we say.
There was a bit of supprise in the Hairdresser's response over the phone when I asked if I could book an appointment. I think she is imagining I want a man's haircut. Well I explained that I had been growing my hair and it needed a trim to tidy it up. I have a feeling I should been a bit more detailed, but the truth is that I am not sure just what to say or ask for in womens terms. So I will have to see what happens on Saturday morning. I think I will just say that I have been growing my hair for the last year and it needs tidying. As I want to grow it down to my shoulders I don't want to lose the general length or at least not very much. If I add that it is an opportunity for the hairdresser to see my hair so that she can advise on future care and be more prepared for my next visit, that may open things up a little as I don't think I would be able to ask for a women's style just yet.
It's another step along the road to I know not where and I am pleased I have taken it. I just hope it is a successful visit.
