I just had to go. It always takes three hours before I walk out of there again. I always bring some Private Eye copies with me to make the waiting a bit more bearable .
I don't engage in small talk. Hairdressers really have nothing to talk about anything I would even consider remotely interesting. I'm not interested in their private lives, what happened to so and so in a soap or which boutique is worth a visit. Most conversations are mind blowingly uninteresting. (See what I did there?) They give new meaning to the word pointless. They take it to a next level. Don't get me wrong, hairdressers are very nice people but the only thing I actually really look forward to is the head massage I get when they're shampooing. And the free booze.
