Same here.  Once you include the tip, it's $60 for me to get my hair cut right because I have a LOT of very fine hair and some pretty awful experiences with getting it done cheaper.  I have actually had a stylist finish cutting it and say "You know, I never really was very good at cutting the front."  That kind of bad experience, multiple times.  So I get it done about twice a year by a woman I trust and trim it myself in between.

 I don't know why some place doesn't have hot looking women who cut hair. Seems like a business idea for someone ? They have hooters where certain women are waitresses .. I sometimes feel tempted to look in the window of hair salons and see who is cutting hair.

 Too bad so many people give mediocre haircuts. I have been going to the same place for years. I don't always cut my hair quite as short as alot of guys, but I have to keep it kind of shorter for business reasons. So much for discrimination, if you are a guy and your hair is kind of long, your chances of getting hired go way down.

Try working in academia.  We actually think long hair makes you smarter.

Thank you

That being said... I don't think you can really characterize all short hairstyles as un-feminine... differences in taste and style make the world go around :)

I may not have worded my comment regarding my short hair as concisely as I could have.  When I took the plunge on behalf
of my friend's prospective wig, I did not realize what a dramatic difference the image staring back at me would be. I had hoped
for a sassy, tousled Nellie Forbush mop. However, what I actually ended up with was un-feminine in my own eyes.
No slam on the gal who cut my hair either, she did a great job!

LvsChant:
Ah... you went from very long to very, very short on a recent cut of your own hair? That kind of dramatic change can be a bit jarring.
