Lauren Quick | November 13, 2017 | 8:30 AM

Salon life: It has its moments of greatness—like nailing a color correction with your work bestie—and those that are less great—when your client still sees yellow in the most glorious platinum-blonde you've ever concocted. 

But at the end of the day, it's great to work in beauty. Even when your resident Sharon/Jan/Brenda is up to her usual tricks. 

1. How do I put this gently... N O.

10. The strand test determined... THAT WAS A LIE.

11. You, me and Joe Biden all know that's a ridiculous request.

12. First: How did her hair get like that? Second: How did that stylist fix it?!

13. Just put my latte on the station, Brenda, and no one gets hurt.
