I’ve been working as a hairdresser for more than ten years now. It’s one of the best jobs and one of the worst jobs in the world. I know that you could say that about every job in some ways, but I really do think that those of us who decided to cut hair for a living are in a very special place in that regard. If you make any mistakes at all and give people a haircut that they don’t like, they’ll react as if you just performed a magic spell on them to make them permanently ugly. Clearly, if I had a magic spell like that, I’d be ruling to world, so I don’t know what they’re talking about. If they like what you did, then you’re more like a fairy godmother. They will keep coming back to you for more and more haircuts as well, and they will expect the exact same performance each and every time, even if that was your best day.


People who are thinking about a career as a hairdresser should read sites like this one in advance. They should understand the highs and the lows of the profession before they actually become part of this profession, and hopefully, I can teach them how to be fairy godmothers.
