Buyer beware

Houndstooth skirt from TJ Maxx / Black blazer / Contrast trim blouse 

Here's a bit of a fun story for you. During my lunchbreak at work, I decided to get my hair cut. I work in kind of a trendy neighbourhood where the average haircut is $50. So I was really happy when I found this little place that said that they did $20 women's haircuts. The place was small and definitely not glamorous, but I'm going for a haircut, not to gawk at nice decor. I told the hairdresser I wanted a haircut ONLY and he told me to sit down to wet my hair. As he started shampooing my hair, I asked him if there was an extra cost. Yup, my "haircut" would now cost $25 because wetting my hair was necessary (though he didn't mention it when I walked in). Otherwise, he suggested that I come into the salon with my hair already wet. So finally, he cuts my hair, but not as short as I wanted it because he insists that long hair will look better on me. But the worst was next. He left my hair wet. Yup, he wouldn't dry it because he said that a "professional blowdry" would cost $10 extra. Dude, I wasn't looking for an intense style & blowdry or anything. I just wanted to be able to walk back to work without wet hair. So instead, I sat there blowdrying my own hair. Needless to say, I won't be going back there. So here's a picture of the neighbourhood instead.

  2. Hahaha that sounds like an awful experience. Can't believe you had to blowdry your own hair at a hair salon... At least you got a story out of it :)

  3. Geez! I've heard stories about the outside world and expensive haircuts but I never knew it's this worse! :D In my hometown you can get a pretty decent cut + blowdry + shampoo for 5$ :D Guess this is the only positive thing about living in a somewhat third world country :D
    Love the gorgeous skirt, very Autumn-y! :D

  4. Oh, wow those pictures are so, so stunning! You always have the prettiest photos ( it is always a pleasure to read your blog!).
    Whoa your experience at that beauty salon sounds pretty hectic! :D It is so unproffessional that they didn't give all the information and insisted to not cut your hair the way you wanted them to be!

  10. So funny! This actually looks like my neighbourhood. I went to get my hair cut and I dealt with this guy who was so rude that I actually just got up and left. Cute outfit! And funny story :)

  11. Dude that sucks! Sounds like a damn super cuts. YOU are in charge of your hair.
    On the plus side I love this outfit. It looks a little bit like a school girl uniform in a GOOD way.

  20. That's happened to me before too! And also the reverse has happened - I went to Great Clips with really dirty hair and expected them to wash it and they DIDN'T so I had to go on a date with dirty hair (yuck). Anyhow, your outfit is really cute!

  21. So sorry to hear about your bad experience. I hate it when a store does that! On a more positive note, though, I really love your outfit here! It's quite preppy and 'street chic' <3 And the neighbourhood looks fantastic.
