That looks really lovely, seriously good cut and looks sooooooo glossy and thick 👍👍👍💇‍♀️👏👏👏

Since I’m sure you’re all just dying to see! :nerd::joy:

Before...
After!

I walked in and said chop it all off please. So the hairdresser stood me up, got out some clippers, and went right along my hair with them to take off a good 5 inches or so. I think my face was like this > :fearful:  but I did want it gone so!

It was a good experience overall I must say, though it was odd being in the hairdressers with none of them chatting away like they usually would.

Marc only has one concern now,  will it grow back ? Its something us men have to consider when having a big cut.

Will bev be posting a precut photo ???

To me, it sounds like salons are complying the best of the lot 👍👍👍👍👏👏👏👏. Absolutely how it SHOULD. be, and totally what you’d expect. Supermarkets abide to a degree, but feels more like a tickbox, as trolleys not sanitised till you’ve held them in the queue 🙄🙄, and pay machine keypad never cleaned! Just makes no sense. 

From what I can see, hair salons putting everyone else to shame 👍👍👍👍👍🥇

Think you’ve tempted me to book, Marc 👍👏

PS can I just say if I may, I nearly missed this post! I always do the WYWA, and on life this did not appear. By chance, I went into off topic, and saw the hair thread in bold, showing “1 new”. I thought bugger me ya bugger, how did that happen? But it did! 🙀💇‍♂️

So, here’s how it went.

First, I had to book. No more waiting in turn while leafing through magazines.

I was temperature checked at the door - got the all clear! Had to wear a mask of course, and grab a squirt of hand gel.

The scissors/combs were disinfected a few times throught. At the end I wasn’t allowed to move - they brought the tap-to-pay machine to me.

Slightly weird, but good to feel the wind in my ears again!! :joy:

I’m still not sure eek. I can see from the salons website it’s doing everything and more 👍👏👍👏to comply, but I’m still a bit hesitant to book yet, even tho I can’t see a thing thru my fringe! 

Ive got the FFP3 mask with strings that go round the back of head rather than ears, so I’m worried he’ll chop then off! (The strings, not my 👂👂!) 😂😂😂😂😂

Ive ordered a second 😷with loops, so when that comes, I may book and be brave. Glad ordered when did as there’ll be mad panic for masks now, it’ll be Andrexgate all over again 😂😂😂😂

Today’s the day! My first proper haircut since early March. :sweat_smile:

Yeah, it is quite different to the previous site, but just over a week now, and think we’re getting more used to it. You’ll be whizzing around it all in no time our Jonny 🏎💥👍👏

Sorry our bev not been anywhere just had a few issues and special jobs to do in the last 2 weeks. Nearly all sorted tuesday hopefully will see an end to recent issues. 

Still trying to work my way around the newbie site seems a bit harder to navigate but maybe coz my brain is elsewhere its not helping me much.

Last time I went to the barbers, they wanted £5 for cutting it and £10 for the search fee.

Popped into my local barbers earlier. Two staff hanging around bored waiting for their next appointment, but looked at my head and said they couldn’t sort it before their next booking.

Wow, shaggy or what? 👨‍🦱

And now gyms are due to open shortly. Way way way too soon. I’m firmly sticking to essential food shopping only still, with me 😷, sanitiser, and distancing 👍. 

Hey welcome back our Jonny 🙀👍👏👏👏👏👏, you missed the official opening of the new platty 😂😂😂😂👍

My tight ass policy of cutting me own continues so no need to worry, im more concerned as to when i feel confident enough to go out for lunch. Not there yet.

@Daspy I’m sure haircuts at the moment are taking a bit longer than usual, as barbers in particular are probably having to chop off a lot more hair than usual :laughing:  

Our local are actually finding it much easier now they have an appointments-only system in place, instead of the old walk-in system, as they know their schedules and when to go on breaks etc much better now, so I think post-COVID will see some permanent changes :thumbsup:

Back in the day, I would try and get a trim every 6/7 weeks. So not too difficult to imagine the length of hair that will confront my barber as and when. (Pseudo gonk type length).As it has been well over x2 of my usual intervals been cuts another few days, so for his sake I will give it another week or so allowing queues to ease, hopefully.

Yes, as you say @Bev , just a tick box exercise!  I won't be going very far for quite some time.  Quite happy to suffer my fringe behind my ear for now 😂

I think mines wearing a visor AND a mask Scuba but you soooooooooo have my mindset! I thought EXACTLY that when saw the news! I think sooooo many do these things purely as a tickbox; it’s like the 🛒cleaning in supermarkets. If you have to first retrieve a 🛒from the car park bays, stand in a queue for an hour, THEN clean your trolley once inside, where’s the logic? I soooo take my own wipes!

I was quite concerned to see on the TV that so many people were wearing Visors but no mask.  Surely if you are lying in the chair having your hair washed and the hairdresser, who may be infected with Covid-19, coughs, then the virus will be directed straight down into your face!!!  I definitely will not be going near a hairdresser if they think that is adequate measures!!

I almost caved yesterday, I must admit, especially after hearing the strict strict ultra strict rules! As I was emailing my stylist tho, on life my iPad crashed 😂😂😂😂😂😂, it was like a sign, saying no no no, not yet! So I haven’t! 😂😂😂😂😂

@Bev I have to say I caved over the weekend and have booked in for next week, at the same place I’ve been going for years, so will be nice to support them. 

It does sound like the measures are really strict, too, so we’ll see! :fingers_crossed:

Luckily I don’t have this problem and just get the clippers out once a week.

Sometimes I find a renegade follicle.
