WBBE: How to be my favorite client

 (One other way to be my favorite client is to be related to me. I always love my clients who are actually my family.)

How to be my absolute #1 most favorite client in the whole wide world:

She's a little elderly lady who you can tell is bubbling over with joy from the first moment you meet her. She comes in saying, "My hair looks like such a mess, I'm so happy that you had room for an appointment today!", and after I make two cuts, she's already gushing about how much better she feels now that her hair is looking better. She has an easy haircut. No trouble spots. She comes in every four or five weeks, and I barely even take half an inch off her hair each time. I can do her haircut in fifteen minutes, but most of the time, I take a little longer, because she's in no rush, and I'm not either. She's simply fun to be with. By the time I'm finished with her haircut, she tells the teacher what a difference I've made. "You should take a before and after picture," she says, "You wouldn't believe how much better I feel now!" She leaves, but not before leaving a $5 tip (the hair cut only costs $5).

She's the one thing I miss about beauty school.

  1. I really admire people who can style hair. Mine is always so unruly until a professional gets a hold of it. Love that fishtail braid!

  2. No doubt you love her. People like that really make your day. Too bad they are so few and far between.

  10. Its the little things that can really make someone's day, that we all take for granted at times. This is beautiful, she is sweet and you are great for being able to make her feel that much more great about herself.

  11. She sounds like the cutest lady! I love older people... like a lot. I also tend to be very emotional so I may or may not have cried over their cuteness before. I think it's okay. haha
