I had my last haircut in January at Raymond Choon in Gardens Mall. Although I liked the haircut and the service there was impeccable, I was still pining for my stylist at Jantzen in MidValley.
I like to go to someone who I can talk (and bitch) to while they're doing my hair and changing to somebody new to do my hair is something I don't look forward to. I mean, I'm going to sit in the chair for like, 2-3 hours. I better be comfortable and I need to talk otherwise I'll fall asleep! How about you? Are you loyally attached to one person entrusted to cut your hair?
Anyway, here I was moping around and badly in need of another session of rebonding and a haircut but not relishing going to any of the many hair salons here in MidValley and Gardens Mall.
I finally dragged my feet back to Jantzen and had wanted to book for a rebonding appointment with just anybody when one of the shampoo girls recognised me and excitedly told me that my stylist, Esther had returned.
My excited scream for her was like me meeting a lost lost friend. LOL
Turned out she went to London for a few months to take care of her cancer-stricken aunt and not approved to take any leave, she resigned from her job. Wasn't it sweet of her to fly to London, leaving her twins behind with her husband so that she can look after her aunt?
So, I had my haircut. My hair is effortlessly straight and shiny now. It looks good even when I just woke up. It's nice not be spending way too much time blow-drying my hair into a sleek bob every morning. I can absolutely skip brushing my hair if I want to now!
I'm storing Esther's handphone number in my phone just in case and I make sure she has my number too. She better not go anywhere else without informing me!
