25 Socially Awkward Moments Everyone Who Hates Getting Their Hair Cut Has Experienced
Head massages are so creepy.
For some people, going to the hairdresser is an enjoyable experience.
Maybe you're haunted by the memory of a terrible haircut you got as a child.
You wish you could be one of those people who are totally chill about going to the salon.
But you hate every single thing about it, so you try to put it off for as long as possible.
The feeling of being out of control isn't a great one, especially if you like to look a certain way.
And the idea of getting a free – or student hairdresser – cut fills you with dread.
But when the time comes to actually tell them what you want, you end up nervously mumbling some nonsense instead.
The supposedly relaxing head massage at the start just makes you tense up more.
And then comes the crapfest that is staring at your wet-haired, drippy, tense reflection for an hour.
The sudden jolt of alarm when they make the first incision is the absolute worst, especially if it's a big chunk.
But it's hard to focus on that, as the feeling of being covered in itchy bits of hair is almost as bad.
When they show you what they've done, you inevitably hear yourself say "fine".
If they haven't cut as much off as you wanted, you think: "What was the point of me going through this hell?"
If they did mess up, no matter how good people tell you it looks, you refuse to like it on principle.
But more often than not, you end up regretting the whole thing.
