THE WORLD is turning upside down, and there are so many reasons to reach for Xanax that sometimes it’s a good thing to sweat the small stuff.
Consider this then: A friend of mine in New York has a dilemma—with her hairdresser. She has been going to the same salon for color for 10 years and has become friendly with the colorist during that time. She also has had her hair cut at the salon with one of their stylists (with whom she was less friendly and had only seen for a year or so). So, when her cousin raved about a stylist at another salon, she decided it was worth giving someone else a try. Her haircut was superb. He also happens to color hair and mentioned to her that he uses a new, less harmful coloring process. In the past few weeks, her colorist has moved to a different salon, so my friend is deciding whether this leaves her an opening to also go to this new guy for color.
But her “old” colorist from the original salon recently called to remind her that she had moved to a different salon and hoped to see her soon. Now, she’s conflicted about what to do. Does she tell the colorist she has been seeing for 10 years that she has decided to try someone new? She doesn’t want to just ghost her. And then if she doesn’t like the new colorist’s job on her hair, does she go back to the old?
