Looking back, I’m not really sure why I went to cosmetology school, I guess I’ve always had a little bit of a hair fetish and having graduated high school I was tired of the same old thing.  I found an accelerated course and within two years had started my own salon.  Just Cuts, I know I little tacky maybe, but I didn’t know what else to call it at the time.  I tried to make it as relaxing as possible, nice colored walls, two black styling chairs, with marble stations, a hair washing station, and a few reception chairs with a little desk.

My first day was going quite slowly, I had gotten one business man in for a quick touch up, but other than that I had kept myself busy adjusting this and that, trying to adjust to the space.  I was just getting ready to close when a girl walked in.  She had long light brown hair down to mid back.  It was nice and glossy and looked very healthy.  The girl introduced herself as Jenny; she seemed like the “spunky” type, very attractive though a bit too young for me.  She wasn’t wearing much if any makeup and her natural beauty shone out.

I asked her to have a seat and threw my nice new cape over her.  “So what do you want me to do today?” I asked, as I combed my fingers through her hair.

“Well, I’d like something a little more exciting, something shorter, but still long enough to have some movement.”

“How about an inverted bob, it would be quite short in back but it would follow your jaw-line down and be about a foot in front”

“Sounds great”

Not needing any encouragement, I bundled her hair into a ponytail and chopped it off just below the nape of her neck.  It took a few snips but with each snip more hair swung forward around her face.  She had a great big smile on her face and seemed to be enjoying the cut so far.

Once I had gotten the bulk of her hair cut off, I had her come over to the shampoo bowl, where I wet down her hair and slowly massaged shampoo in.  After I had rinsed the shampoo out, I massaged in conditioner, which was soon rinsed out as well.  Once I had gotten the towel wrapped around her now wet hair, I helped her up and led her back to the chair.

After sectioning, I started cutting.  Since cutting the ponytail had created the basic style, it didn’t take long before the cut began to emerge.   It looked great on her, accenting her jaw line perfectly.  Once I had gotten everything but the back finished, I took out my blow dryer and proceeded to dry her hair, combing it into place.  I then grabbed my trusty clippers, and popped a #4 guard on before turning them on.  After having her put her head down, I slowly moved them up her nape.  Large clumps of hair came tumbling down.  She seemed very relaxed and like she was enjoying the clippers.

It didn’t take long until I was finished with the clippers. After a little more trimming and after cleaning up her neck, I pronounced her finished.  I took off the cape and helped her up.  She looked in the mirror and shook her head a few times, watching the hair fall back into place.  She seemed very happy with the cut, which was further emphasized by the tip she gave me.  Before leaving she thanked me, and then putting on her jacket, was walking down the street, her hair swinging around her face.  I was happy to know that my first real customer was a happy one.

The End
