Gossip, secrets and trust


A couple younger hairdressers that I know had a couple of comments to make about what they read in my book. One of the comments had to do with gossip,secrets and trust in the salon. They both said they decided to pay more attention when they went to work. They wanted to see if what I wrote about and what was happening now was even close to comparison.

Taking into consideration we live in a small town and the hustle and bustle of the big city where I worked will make a slight difference. Natalie said the four days she paid attention she noticed that the older clientelle was more like the clients I wrote about, while the younger ones were more like one timers.

They both found that the biggest tipers were men. The walk ins left the lesser amounts. Unlike the noise in the salons with everyone sharing as in my book they both said the salons are very quiet almost like a library. I wondered how much does the hairdresser play in this? Maybe they are more reserved than I am. I do know the few customers I still have here at home share everything with me but I have been doing their hair for over 25 years.


They both agreed that customers old and new seem to want to share anything and everything in their lives. These two friends and hairdressers I know for sure hold what is told them sacred. They both thought my book should be and inspirational book read in all salons or hairdressing schools. Eye opening information for the newbie was Sandra’s thoughts.

All in all they both said that things have changed but not to a great extent.


How do you feel about your beauty experience? I would really like to know.

    Interesting, but I’m afraid I can’t help you out here as I haven’t been to a hairdresser’s since about 1969. That was the last time I had my hair cut short. I have trimmed it from time to time, but have never worn it short again. I can just about sit on the tips of my hair now. I did occasionally take my mother to the hairdresser lived with me, and it seems to me that when I went to pick her up it was not a place of silence. It wasn’t noisy, but people were chatting and it seemed like a cheerful place.

      That is the way it should be.cheey and buzzing. I went the other day to pick up a shampoo and the place was busy but you could hear a pin drop. I wanted to scream “SOMEOBODY CRACK A JOKE” LOL
