Keith Gahagan I think I blacked out. I don't remember anything. No, just kidding. The school salon put me with a kind woman for a 90° cut.
Deborah Novick My first client as a freshman in beauty college had lice. I thought it was a good way to kick off a 25 year (and counting) career! One certainly does not forget that :)
Lisa Maag Yes, I have been doing her now for over 25 years and she has sent many clients to me!
Christine Strong My first client was scheduled for an airwave in the last 30 minute slot of the day. She took her hair down and it was down to her butt and as soon as I washed it was unbelievably curly. As I was trying to brush it out she actually laughed at me, and I was done with the appt time before I even had my blow dryer out. After staying open 45 minutes later I still wasn't done and the owner came over to talk to my guest. She tried to calmly explain that she had obviously scheduled for the wrong appt time and it should not have included a flat iron and should have explained how much hair she had when making the appt. The whole thing turned into a yelling match and the owner having her leave and asking her to never return. It wasn't my fault but I will never forget it.
Sheila Izenberg Hannibal Circa 1950...she was terrified, I was not. Results were great...shoulder length hair to Pixie cut(popular back in the day. I also did her unibrow into two lovely arches...went on to make-up and that was it for me......still doing make up & loving it
Kathy Morrow yes I do and I was horrified and thought I was going to throw up did the s/c/s and when I gotten done she said it was beautiful. THEN, right after, I had another client with a hair cut and she said it was the worst hair cut she had ever gotten so that burst my bubble bad.
Terri Green Definitely. First cut was a man's hair cut and up until then I thought I wasn't half bad at men's cuts lol. Boy was I wrong. 3 hours later his hair was finally done but next time he came back he requested me so guess it was as bad as I thought I had done.
Erin Mayo- Noah I have been laughing out loud reading these!! I tried giving my husband a high n tight. He was in the army at the time. Well I guess it sucked so bad that the army guys made him shave it :( The first hair cut I had in school was a woman though, and it went swimmingly!
Stephanie Kay Pulled her hair through a cap to highlight, (15yrs ago). Lightened her hair, took her to shampoo bowl, rinsed lightener off her hair, took off cap, sent her back to my chair, that's right... For some reason I didn't shampoo her and I thought she was gonna have a heart attack when she saw her hair.... It looked like spaghetti noodles on her head! I could have died! Took her to sink, washed it and turned out fine :-) learned to foil after that!
