Anxiety Level: Depends
Level of Difficulty: Also Depends
Result of Blowing It: Really Depends
My daughter, Kate, and I visited the hair stylist. Guys visits barbers, gals go to “stylists.” I need hair maintenance every three weeks. My regular maintenance includes a 5-on-the-side-with-scissors-on-top. I’m usually done in 11 minutes.
DAUGHTER: Dad, my hair needs work.
ME: Okay, you go first.
STYLIST: Do you want a style, trim, or cut?
ME: There’s a difference?
Kate walked to the chair and quickly made friends with the stylist who promptly pulled out a reference book containing photos, styles, colors, curls…a ton of information. Not only was I the only guy around, I was the only person. So, I bided time in the waiting area and thumbed through magazines. Forty-five minutes later Kate was done.
ME: Uh, looks nice…what did she do?
DAUGHTER: You can’t tell?! Hey, what’s that you’re reading?
ME: [Silence, embarrassment]
DAUGHTER: Is that Cosmopolitan?
Guys can learn a lot reading Cosmopolitan Magazine. But I sure wish they had photos of a style, trim, or cut (and gave advice on the right thing to say after a female gets their hair done).
