I’ve been getting my hair cut by the same hairdresser for about 10 years, with only a couple of short breaks. I had that “grass is always greener” syndrome a couple of times and went to try others, but I always come back to Donna. And frankly, at this point, I’m pretty darn happy with how green the grass is right where I am.
Second, I love the way that she looks – which may seem superficial, but when someone is doing my hair I want to trust their sense of style. Donna is always impeccably put together – both her hair and her clothing. I think she’s gorgeous, which always gives me confidence when I sit down in her chair.
As important as those two things are, though, here’s the MOST important – she doesn’t make me talk!!! When I sit down in her chair, I close my eyes and enjoy the feeling of her playing with my hair. Twenty minutes later she nudges me and says, “Okay, you’re all done.” During those 20 minutes, she doesn’t ask me any questions that I feel obliged to answer. She doesn’t gossip. She doesn’t fill the air with a lot of words just so that it won’t be too quiet.
I absolutely love going to get my hair cut because it’s truly “ME” time. I get to sit quietly with myself and my thoughts for a little while as someone plays with my hair. Truly, what could be better?
In fact, it’s so wonderful that even if I didn’t like the haircuts she gave me, I’d probably still go to her just because she’s comfortable being quiet. The blessing and miracle, of course, is that I DO like the haircuts she gives me, so it’s a total win-win!
Thanks Donna. You’re the best.
