A few weeks ago I needed a cheap and quick trim for my barnet. Basically, it had been frazzled and the ends looked like the end of cable wires. I knew a trim was for the best but I didn’t want to spend £60 for the luxury.
So I went for the Junior stylist. The hairdressers I went to had a online booking system so I basically went for the cheapest one. I’d usually go for someone…well, in the middle!
The build up to the hair cut I got a bit nervous – what if this junior hairdresser, the only one who cost £23 at the salon, was rubbish? What if she was fresh out of hairdressing school and only knew how to cut in straight lines?!Years ago I remember my friend making to go to the Toni & Guy academy with her. It cost something like £10, and the girl who did my hair certainly looked the part but the problem came when the trainer approached us and said to her, “What the HELL are you doing?”.
Well…she was training, I guess.
Overall my experience with the junior hairdresser was absolutely fine. She did a trim and a few layers (which in hindsight, felt a bit heavy but it doesn’t look bad). It took about 1 hour and was dried how I like it (a bit of wave!).
Also, perhaps because she was a junior, she was clearly trying really hard!
Would I get a junior to cut my hair again? Sure! As long as I had tried him/her before. But probably not if I was getting a big restyle.
So, when you go for a hair cut, what level hairdresser do you go for or do you not care?
