Riddle me this internet. How do you break up with a hairstylist but keep going to the same salon?
I love the salon I go to. It keeps my Ulta Rewards points up and I can stay a platinum member, therefore my points don't expire. But. I want to switch to a different stylist. I used to rave about my stylist and about how I LOVED how he cut my hair. But lately...? Not so much.
I haven't been loving the fact that my appointment ALWAYS starts a half an hour later than it's scheduled. I haven't been loving the fact that even though I've said over and over that I don't like a lot of layers in my hair because it makes it poof up and then I can't throw it in a ponytail when I need to, I still get freaking layers in my hair. Annnnnnddd, no matter how many times I correct him on how to say my name, he always gets it wrong. I understand it can be tricky. I've lived with being called the wrong name for at least 20 of the 25 years of my life, but after two plus years... Annoying and frustrating.
Someone, please help me. I'm past the point of trying to make it work and now I know I just want to go to a different stylist. I don't like awkward conversations, so I don't really want to just tell him that I want to go to someone else. I've cancelled two of my last appointments because I've been putting this off.
So, what do you suggest?
