Is it just me, or do you ladies have this trouble too? I'd been going to my stylist for 5 years. She works in an upscale salon about 1/2 hour away but I would go to her home on her days off and get the same product and service for half the price. Great lady and I always enjoyed going. We'd have a beer or glass of wine and chat away. For the first few years, I always got a great cut and colour but I really hadn't been happy for at least a year and it was always hard to schedule the time on that one day she was available at home as she had many clients who do the same. I felt like no matter what I asked for, it looked the same. We were in a rut. Before we went to Aruba, on the day I was to get my hair done, we had a blizzard. Now with just a few days before we were to leave, I took a chance on a local salon and stylist I'd heard great things about. Loved it!! It was a great cut that just seemed to fall perfectly when I styled it. I've been 3 times now and have a bit of guilt about whether I should call my former stylist and just say, it is easier for me to schedule appointments at the new salon. It's true; breaking up is hard to do!
