My hair was past shoulder length yesterday morning, and I had some work things to do today, so I went and got a haircut yesterday.
It had been about 2 years exactly since my last haircut, and I never cared for having it done anyway.
I thought that I could go to a salon and ask the opinion of the hairdresser. I told her that she could do whatever she thought would be good. And this confused her.
My guess is that had I said, "Do this" Then it would have been no problem, but as it was she didn't know what to do.
Whoever says "women need to be led" may be very correct.
