I have this slightly weird relationship with my hairdresser – Tracy. I am given to understand that the appropriate interval between haircuts is 6 weeks – but we generally meet only every 3 to 4 months.
She always spends the first half of the appointment berating me for letting my hair get untidy. After four, or so, months my split ends are in serious need of a cut – she apparently takes some delight in showing them to me in the mirror. And the second half of the appointment we then argue about what chemicals were applied to the hair, whether it was a tint or a bleach. However, she does manage to cut my hair into a good shape, and she seems to rather like our interactions. We did once try to talk about ski touring, but it didn’t really work out so well.
