Anyone else have trepidation when your normal cutter leaves suddenly? I had a lady cut my hair for a few years now (and before her the same one for about the equal time). I could go in and joke "Same ol', same ol'"...no issues. She got a job at a full salon (more money and less travel, so kudos to her!) To me, its almost like going to a new doctor.
Not to mention the lady tonight wasn't following what I asked and had to do some adjusting. Her small talk was cringe worthy, too. "Are you going to dressed up for Halloween?" "Its a good thing you can only get opioids for 10 days. My friend almost died two weeks ago." "Do you have kids? I have a three year old. He doesn't play with toys much, but likes watching the garbage disposal and things." My shirt was damp on the back when I left I was so tensed up about the whole deal!
The haircut is fine, but I'll select another cutter next time. I was partially to blame due to someone else doing the cutting and being weird about it.
Anyone else have haircutterchangephobia?

Nah, I have a short military style cut - "high and tight". Tough to screw up and if they want to be chatty, I can chat it up for the 10 mins it takes to do.

The worst is when the dental hygienist wants to chat, how am I supposed to talk with all the [censored] she has stuffed in my mouth? ???

I cut my own hair with clippers. I can't see the back of my head, but I do the best I can do.

She was most likely as nervous as you. I would give her another try.

Sort of. My ex-girlfriend used to do it, and I got in the habit of regarding it as foreplay.

When we split up I was too sentimental to go to a pro so I learned to...ahem...do it myself. (Though I've subsequently had offers, honest.)

Old fashioned screw-adjustable safety razor set loose does a reasonably neat trim. Its thinning anyway.

Lol. That's the thing. I have a semi-military cut. #1 guard high up on the sides and blended (NO lines!!), squared back, finger length on top and texturized. That's it. I know I was in the chair for over 20 minutes!

Its a process done by razor or specialized scissors that gives your hair a bit of a rough look.

My only notable haircut was boot camp. It went really fast and when I walked outside I could tell which way the wind was blowing using my head. The haircut set the tone for the rest of boot camp.

Exact same for me except with a #2 guard on the sides and no texture.
I personally just go to the shopping center with the Walmart, and there are 3 hair shops right within walking distance. I check one then the other until I find one I can get right in at. I dont wait in lines. If I can't get in at any I go home and try the next weekend. So I don't have a 'regular' person. I haven't had a conversation go like that however. Thats really strange. Usually just asking what I do for work and what have you.
