thats fucking ridiculous right?
im too scared to call them and cancel it. fuck.
Call them and cancel it.
You're in Manc, right? Headmaster's do some referral thing where you can get discount or something - someone else will explain properly...
i mean - i can afford it with my bonus next month but i really cant see what they can do to my hair thats worth 130 smackers.
Try Peter marcus on st peter street- I used to go to Emily, she's ace.
i've heard mixed things but a girl i work with gets hers done there and loves it..
It'll be down to the indiividual stylist I guess, as the rest is all branding. If you want somewhere super-cheap and central, the woman at Toppers is good- loads of people in my old office used to swear by her.
two girls, one cut.
out of my memory and then you go and say that.
Cancel them, say you've double booked and will call them back AND DON'T.
Then I'll give you a friend card for headmasters and you'll get it half price and next time I go so will I :)
It's pretty good there.
"Get to fook" in Manchester?
literally no one.
See it written all the time but no one in the world pronounces fuck like that
How, in RP terms, should one phonetically spell the Mancunian pronunciation of the word "fuck"?
so unless they're going to shave each hair off individually, I don't get it.
for a haircut / colour I would shave her head AND eyebrows.
or anything else that is equally non-permanent
Call them up and say you've double booked and need to cancel. Simple.
then they won't think you cancelled just because you're tight.
And I will make out you have to fly somewhere on business.
It's on the pricey side for sure, but I don't think it's extortionate (is it foils? they tend to be more pricey. Also, are you in a city?) I used to go to saks in Glasgow in about 2005 and they charged £125 for a half head of foils and a cut, and it was nearly 200 for a full head. They weren't even that good and I found somewhere in a town nearby who did it for half that. It's about the same in Manchester now, and slightly more in London, so far as I can see. However, if you hunt around you'll find perfectly good salons in towns, or in the outskirts of cities that charge much MUCH less than that. Avoid chains like Toni & Guy and Saks- they're just franchises and the quality control by the brand owners is shocking.
a haircut can cost anything upwards of £50 too...
it's not ridiculous, but if you can't afford it, just say you can't make it that day and will rearrange at some later date (and obviously don't)
or just cancel the colour bit?
I paid £4.50 for my last haircut. To be fair, it shows.
It was ok though as I hadn't paid for a one in the seven years previous. And the hairdresser was pretty.
I got a fat Greek bloke who kept pausing to answer his mobile and tell whoever he was talking to that 'Snoopy had pissed him off for the last time'.
£4.50 well spent.
that, and a hairdresser who's mute, or near enough. Can't stand the tedu=ious chit chat.
Once I hit the jackpot: a looker from Mauritius, who was a bit of perfectionist when it came to cutting hair, but who obviously wasn't super confident with her English and so she didn't speak much, but when she did it was with an innards melting French accent.
Sadly, she left the country after only a couple of months ):
haircut: worth literally £5
once in a while, it's probably worth it
If you want a killer cut, you can get a stand-by/drop-in cut for approx £40 at John Frieda in Spring gardens, and get your colour done elsewhere. There are student nights at all of ther big salons- nicky oliver just off cross street, next to Grinch is worth a try. Also Hedonist in the northern quarter.
too fucking common? yeah.
fucking cancel? fuck yeah.
It is fucking ridiculous.
i have no right (not with any seriousness anyway) to go around calling people common....
is so bizarre I think the most I've ever paid for mine is £12.
and all of that stupid head-rubbing stuff. To be fair, my new salon in london has its own cocktail bar, which is a gimmick I don't mind paying for.
IT WAS BRILLIANT.
I cut mine myself a few weeks ago. For the first week or so it looked abysmal, but now I think it's a GREAT SUCCESS.
I stupidly spent £250 on my hair once and hated it.
Now I do my own!!! Hooray me!
I can always tell when he does it.
I don't think you can tell that it's a bit bodged. OR MAYBE YOU CAN. Hmm.
If you do that yourself, then YAY you!
A whole 7 minutes later? :D
See, not as easy as you think is it?
It's pretty toppish, but you get a bottle of beer while you wait
do you get more than one?
to have your hair dyed in a salon, but I can't really see why, unless bleach is involved. Maybe I'll regret doing it myself for £5 when I realise my hair is all grey underneath or something.
now I do it with a £5 box and the colour is better and brighter. I'd only bother for blonde or if you want it to have different colours in or whatever.
I finally felt brave enough to ask them not to give me the head massage this time.
Why would you be too scared to cancel?? Man up :D
I'm sure we can do it on your behalf in a way that would not be at all embarassing.
reckon they'd get the message eventually....
I've decided, im going to do some proper research when i get home, look at some of the suggestions up there ^ ask my mummy what she thinks and then man up and cancel. Im not even fussed about the colour that much and £130 really is taking the piss.
yep, that's two years' worth of haircuts
what colour would you like?
would you ask the council to do your hair
I will be using only gentle natural colourants
colour options include henna, beet-red, madder-red, alder/osier/urea-red, tumeric-yellow, burnt(literally)-ochre, burnt-oak etc
Mufti's in Northern Quarter is good. And they play 80's hip hop. Most I've ever paid for a haircut, £22, but was really well done, they took the time etc, I'm guessing they'd be good at girls too and it'd be about half £130
Are they going to give you a brazilian and re-shape your eyebrows at the same time while tiny fish give you a pedicure and an attractive man oils your nipples?
Cancel it. NOW.
im an idiot ill sort it out when i get in. then ill have more money to spend at supersonic (y)
nothing worse than squeaky rusted nips
nip chafing :(
(jks btw, my nipples are normal sized and cause me no hassel whatsoever)
pay me a fiver and i'll sort yer barnet out xx
and Dragon's Den cutting hair with a blindfold on.
He charged me a tenner and that included having my hair washed upside down.
It was the first time ever that someone has given me a business card and a tissue at the same time.
I just cant justify it, Just trim the thing meself and dye it clumsily if bored.
I reckon you can get a better deal, cancel and shop around, Ouef sounds knowledgeable.
i deeply resent paying more than £20 for a haircut, especially now that it's so short it needs cutting constantly. my hairdresser back home does it for £10 (i think i'm her only customer under the age of 50), and recently i've been getting my aspiring hairdresser friend to do it for a fiver but he's just moved away :'(
and now i look like a Greek :(
still, it only cost me 8 quid
