Is it me? Don't answer that. I have complicated hair which grows in weird directions unless spoken to sternly by a professional. That way it looks OK for three weeks out of five. I can't be bothered to go every three weeks. The few years I spent with a number one were not flattering although they were cheap. Too many moles see.
Moving down here I noticed that most of the men in Nailsea had the same hair style and suspected a conspiracy, or a salon called Stepfordlocks.
So I wandered into Bristol where a nice lass at Toni and Guy made a right pig's ear of me barnet. Someone I met in Bath had a decent hair cut and I enquired and ended up at Essentials (a Toni and Guy offshoot and it's probably spelt essenshulls or something). Got a nice stylist who did well then left. Stayed with the same shop and found a second stylist who did equally well but then went on a world tour.
Ended up back at Toni and Guy in Bristol on the recommendation of a friend. Billy (real name Katey but there was already a Katey when she started so she had to take a pseudonym) was the real deal and managed three or four consecutive hair cuts. Mrs T went to her as well and was equally pleased.
Billy has now left and, as is the case with such businesses, they won't tell us where she has gone and we don't know her surname or private address. Mrs T has positively forbidden me to use the same person as her ever again so I've decided to walk into random salons and see if that way works out any better. Clevedon, Friday, Studio 2, Robert should probably be eliminated from your enquiries and I'll expect the 'Who did your hair, the Council?' jokes on Sunday.
