Hair Stylist Or Therapist?

Does anyone else feel like their hair stylist’s chair is similar to a therapist’s couch?  Every time I see my stylist, it is like I “must” divulge all that has been going on with me (good and not-so-good) since our last session/appointment.

It’s funny really because the therapy goes both ways. Some days she has the perfect advice for me and then there are days when I say exactly what she needs to hear.

I think people feel comfortable talking to their stylist because:

1. They are giving you their undivided attention

2. They talk to so many people, that they have the consensus on every situation

3. If you trust them with your hair, surely you can trust them with affairs of the heart and life

I have talked to my stylist about a wide range of topics from my son’s poop to politics. Neither of which is she an expert on, but it is always nice to get an objective opinion on topics.  It is also a GREAT thing that my stylist is an optimist. She is the yen to my yang. If I am down, she can pick me up. If I want to do something that is not so smart, she tells me like it is.

She has complete confidence in me as a woman and person and I have the same respect for her.  So, why would I need to spend an extra $50.00 for a therapist session when I am already getting to vent, every other week, for practically free.

I really do need to add another $25 bucks in her fee for lending her ear 🙂
