I've been sitting in the hair washing chair for 20 min now waiting for my hair to be washed. My "stylist" just ordered her gyro, and left the assistant to condition my ends cuz they're "so bad". Normally I hate small talk at the hair salon

I'm not happy with my haircut - It's about 3-4 inches shorter than I wanted (very short) and looks nothing like the photo I came in with. There's not much I can do with it aside from pin it back and let it grow. I previously saw Lindsay
