I had a hair cut appointment on Saturday morning. The rules are simple and unwritten.
1. Arrive on time, never late.
2. Chat with Jerry about social issues
3. Never touch your hair during the cutting/styling process.
4. Never touch your hair during the cutting/styling process. (Not a repeat, just a lot of emphasis.)
For the first time in eighteen years of Jerry cutting my hair, I touched my hair. The world came to a dead stop and I immediately knew that I had done. I had not just touched my hair; I had doubted his creative genius. Over time, I just hope we can get back to the level of trust we had for each other.
I read a tweet today that linked to this blog post. Very related and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Did I mention that you should never touch your hair during the cutting/styling process?
Graphic design, art, writing… anything creative at all, never touch your hair during the cutting/styling process.
