If you're always in a hurry I'll save you time right now by telling you there's no need to read any further.
I spend just about every day rushing. Rush to get ready for work. Thirty-five mile drive in rush hour traffic. Chase my tail all day long and rush home, often heading to an evening meeting or something. I enjoy keeping somewhat busy, but lately have such little down time that I end up overscheduling that too.
To allow more time for the important stuff, like blogging, I've cut back to shaving just once a week. I can't tell you the last time I got a haircut, but it likely was last year.
I left work late tonight even though I had a 7:15 appointment. "Paul Mitchell will just have to wait, I'm getting a lot of paperwork done."
Between leaving late, making a delivery on the way home and stopping for takeout at Mr. Wok in Silvernail Plaza, I had just fifteen minutes to get home, let the dog out, feed the cat . . . eat and be to my appointment with Paul Mitchell.
After all this time I can say I finally visited the academy Waukesha, and finally got a haircut too! My first visit to a teaching salon and I was a little apprehensive. Of the unknown, not the cut. Maybe that's why I spent the next hour peppering Jackie with dozens of questions. You literally couldn't shut me up. Nervous chatter.
The reason for the advice at the beginning of this blog? These cuts aren't for those in a hurry. The students are there to learn, not rush through clients. If the only way for you to slow down is to make an appointment, then this place is for you: they take appointments days in advance.
In the past my haircuts have usually been a #2 clipper length, blended up. It's a quick cut and easy to maintain because it's so short. the academy won't let Jackie use a #2 clipper attachment though. They want her to be adept with shears.
Not only does the consultation and cut take longer than usual, there's also a shampoo, stress-relieving scalp massage . . . Another words, if you don't have a few minutes to relax in a chair at the academy Waukesha, this haircut probably isn't for you. Though I left there in less than an hour and a half, it's still an hour longer than my usual cut. Worth the seven dollars? Will the sun rise in the morning?
For seven bucks it felt really great to help someone on their career path. Looking mighty fine, and the haircut isn't bad either!
