how does the hair salon

I've always been amazed how bad the hair salon can make your skin look, so bad that I dont believe I have really looked for about 10 years in those devil mirrors.

maybe I can find a barber that cuts hair by candle.

I absolutely agree - I always try to avoid looking in the mirrors there as my skin tends to look awful.

The candlelight idea is a good one! Alternatively, find a hairdresser without a mirror in front!

I agree about the hair salon mirrors. Some clothing store dressing rooms are horrid as well. I went to one whose initials are AA, and yicks, I couldn't stand to look at myself with a bright spot light on me. Not only did it accentuate my scars, but I looked fishbelly pale and sickly. They must only want perfect-skin people with golden tans to shop there.

omG!

Hair salons are bad, but I believe having to get your hair washed is even worse since people can look straight down at your face and there's usually a spotlight shining off your face!

The hair cut doesn't bother me too much because I've got astigmatism and less than perfect vision and need spectacles. But I still get concious about the spotlights and how when he/she tries to get hair back, etc. he/she may feel them on my temples or forehead or my sides.

The last time I went, the hairdresser had a long comb with a file of sharp teeth and it kept scratching at my sides (somewhat lightly) where I had some active acne. It was horrid: to point this out to him, or just bear with it? Thankfully, it stopped after some time and the brushing only occurred like 3-5 (?) times at the start of the whole thing.

try being a hairdresser, and always being surrounded by mirrors. Its the lighting that really sux, but we need it otherwise theres too many shadows.

i don't suggest candle light cutting or not using a mirror....you'll just end up with a dodgy haircut biggrin.gif
