I don't like people touching my head.  It's just something that makes me uncomfortable.  This means I also can't stand getting my hair cut.  I can't really see what the person is doing.  I feel little hairs tickling me all over.  My arms are stuck underneath a cover that is keeping more hair from getting on my clothes.  I can hear the scissors.  I feel the heat of the hair drier.  I can hear the sound of the hair drier.  I smell the hair care products.  Top it off with the endless chatter, and it's just not my favorite event.

So this is what I do:  I get my hair cut once a year, by the same person.  This person knows me and knows that I like the same cut every time.  (Which makes them a pro!)  I have them cut off as much as I can stand while still being able to tuck it behind my ears.  I do this in the Spring so that my hair is nice and short for the warm weather to come.  Then, I donate the hair to Locks of Love, and I'm set for the year.
