So I have issues. I know it, but the difference is I now no longer feel the need to mask them up in some cloud of normalcy. One of these issues is with guys who cut hair. It’s not right. Stereotypical? Sure. It just creeps me out, not in a homophobic way, it’s just not at all what I’m used to. Obviously guys have the right to cut hair as their profession. In fact, the best line the runways of some of largest fashion shows and back lots of major motion picture production sets and i certainly like watching them work on shows like Project Runway. I am sue this post will anger some folks, and that is not my intent.
I have had my hair cut by guys before, and the haircuts have been… meh. The best so far was from Scott at rSalon. However it was for my wig, from my role as Joseph in Joseph and the Amazing Techincolor Dreamcoat. He was really good. But that was a wig he cut and not my real hair. I would be lying if I told you that all the cuts by gals were perfect… they haven’t. Frankly, the whole notion of getting your haircut creeps me out. Unknown people touching your hair. Insisting on making simple conversation based around the weather, and the differences between the cities… hair clippings on the floor pushed around by an old push broom. There’s always soft rock music on the speaks and if your lucky you’re blessed with the guy in the waiting section that needs to turn to around down the volume on his smartphone while he plays his time wasting game. Seriously can’t deal with that guy right now. I am currently writing this post while waiting to get my haircut. Have not had one in two months. It’s way overdue. But I can see that the rotation of people in line and who’s almost done cutting hair that I am lined up to have the guy. I want to leave, but the dilemma. I need a haircut. What to do? Just then Julie and the kids come walking in the salon ready to go to lunch. What timing. Aaron needs a haircut to start school. Within seconds my name is called and boom, Aaron gets the fast pass to the top of the line. My hair cut will gladly wait a few more days. Aaron looks adorable and ready for school. I need to just make a standing appointment with someone at rSalon and lose the anxiety all together.
I told you. I have issues.
