What can you do in 3 minutes?

Connie at MasterCuts at the Morgantown Mall can give a lousy haircut and charge $12.95.

I simply just made a comment like, "Well, that's the fastest haircut I've ever had" while rolling my eyes. I guess I should realize that that is the reason people go to places like that, in the mall - for a quick in and out experience. And that's sort of why I went in there - just an impulse cut because my hair was at an uncomfortable length and I wanted it cut now, rather than making an appointment at a nicer salon. So I guess you get what you pay for... but geez! Three minutes?!? I sat down, and before I finished telling her what I wanted her to do, she was done and asking for my money! Even if it doesn't take longer for the quality of haircut they provide, at least fake it and make people feel like they are getting their money's worth.

Rant over.

I don't even think you got what you paid for. Great Clips is $12, and they sure spend more than 3 minutes on my hair. More like 15. Maybe that's because I do the layered thing. Hopefully your hair will grow back quickly, and your reminder of your visit will be forgotten!

been there, done that (more than once!). learn your lesson the first time, and just remember it's worth paying the big bucks for a good cut. it's easy to think, "how hard can it be to just cut straight across?". but it is apparently harder than we think, or maybe it seems so easy that they skipped that step in hair-trimming school, or most likely, they didn't even go to school!!!!!
