This year marks the tenth in which I’ve been getting my hair cut by the same person. Mary-Anne has been giving me decent looking hair since 1999. Considering the nature of my thick, coarse, and wild hair, this is a testament to her abilities.
Starting in January, she’ll be moving to another salon. It will also mark the second time I’ve followed her to another establishment. Among gentlemen, I don’t know another dude that’s been that loyal to a hair cutter. In my experience, dudes get their hair cut at the place that’s most convenient at the time with whoever is available. I guess if my hair were that manageable and malleable I might do that too. As it stands, MA knows the weirdness of my hair better than anyone does, so I return to her time and again.
Here’s to a decade of hair maintenance cycles!
