First day on the floor -STRESSFULLLLLL
My first day on the Clinic Floor was today! It was a lot of fun to actually get started in real beauty school and not be in the classroom anymore but it was so SCARY!!! There were so many people watching me which was very nice because i had a lot of questions but it made me like 100 times more nervouse. So we had to do a Male haircut for our first one. It was actually kind of like a test so that we could advance to being on the floor full time. Anyway I got my friend/neighbor, Blake to come in so that i could cut his hair. He is kind of an emo boy and so his hair wasn't the shortest hair that i have ever seen. He told me that he diddn't want that much off because he wanted it to still be a little long so that he could be Troy Bolton (you know from High School Musical) for Halloween. So i was like " ok thats even better so i won't have to take that much off". So today comes and i'm actually kind of freaking out because it's a test. I mean i have cut hair like TONS of times but i have NEVER done it scissor over comb (if you don't know what that means, it just means that instead of taking the hair with your fingers, you just comb up with the comb and cut off of that....hard for a first timer!) So i was kind of nervouse. So what do ya know, i cut it too short!!!!!! hahaha i felt SO bad! it really turned out to look so good! but it was just shorter than we had planned. Its short in the back and longer in the front. i actually didn't cut anything off of the front. i just faded it from the back to the front and in the top i cut a fohawk(however you spell that) and then longer in the front, you know-the typical emo hairstyle. Which is what he wanted but it was just a little too short in the back. It didn't look bad at all it was just short. Everyone was like thats the best mistake you could have made blah blah blah but i still felt bad!!!!!! I mean people were taking chunks out of these boys' hair and it was all uneven. So mine looked great it was just too short. He said that he really liked it but i just wonder if he is just trying to make me feel better! i just don't know! i guess i'm just a perfectionist and i didn't want to make ANY mistakes going into this but really who doesn't make mistakes. i just have to keep telling myself that! So after that i had this huge 500 point test which was also So stressful!!!! I just had a stressful day so i'm home and ready to just hang out and relax. THIS DAY IS FINALLY OVER!!!! I really don't want this to scare people away from you wanting me to do your hair. I really am pretty good at hair and LOVE doing it...really!!!! It was just a learning experience. And i really don't understand because i have cut SOOOOOO many boys' hair but this was just different. Bless his heart for letting me cut it though! haha UGH i'm just stressing over it so PLEASE don't be scared for me to touch your hair!!!!!!! i PROMISE i won't mess it up!!!! hahaha So That was my stressful day at school!!!!!!
