The Editors’ Heads Hurt Just Thinking About This Request

, , , | Right | December 1, 2019

(My older brother is a hairdresser and loves his job very much. As with every other job, there are crazy customers. This woman comes in for a consultation.)

Brother: “Hello, miss. What can I do for you?”

Woman: “I would like my hair bleached and dyed silver.”

(I think it’s worth mentioning that my brother is not a fan of certain trends but remains nonetheless professional and does what the client requests. This ain’t one of those moments.)

Brother: “Your hair is very dark, so it might take a few sessions to do what you requested.”

Woman: “Oh, no, no. I don’t have time for that. I want it all done today.”

Brother: “I’m sorry, miss, but it cannot be done safely in one day. I recommend doing it in stages.”

Woman: “I don’t have time for that. Why can’t you do it in one day? Aren’t you a professional?”

Brother: “I’m a professional hairdresser, not a wizard. Trying to bleach hair as dark as yours enough to dye it silver in just one day will most likely make you bald.”

(The woman pouted and was escorted out by her boyfriend who later came to apologize and say how happy he was that he saw her crazy side before he popped the question.)
