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!!!!!!

Steph you are so funny- you said that 'it was just too short' like a bazillion times!!! Don't worry, I still have trust in you. I think that you probably did the best. I can just tell. You are just paranoid and HELLO it was the first day and a big test! Of course you're gonna stress and make a mistake. It's kind of like...when I take a test, I barely ever get 100%. Same with you- you might make a slight mistake like making it a little too short, but you still got like 97%. That's still WAY good. I still want you to do my hair. I am not sure how I want it though. I can be your tester if you can't find someone, or even if you can, I don't care! Anyway- call me anytime to practice, or invite me to the salon:) OH yes- and your scrap hair look book thing is way cute. Some of those bangs were carazy! What hours are you at school for? What kind of schedule do you have each week? Let me know and we can hook up or something. I love youuu!!!! Have fun and think of a cute style for my hair!!!

Oh girl, I KNOW his hair looked good. AND for real, it is JUST hair! :o) I am sooo serious when I say that I want you to do my hair some day! I've cut my little brother's hair before and cut it wayyyy short...it was rediculous looking, but whatever, it grew back! AND that boy wouldn't have let you cut it if he didn't trust you! So you stop that worrying! You're learning and everyone knows that. AND you're gonna be the BEST hair stylist EVER! :o)

You can do mine and Steve's hair anytime...if we ever see you that is! Good job grel, I'm so proud!

Like everyone else said, I'm sure it was great and we haven't lost any faith in you. Plus, you finished the haircut, once, my sister cut my brother's hair b4 church, and she didn't have time to finish, so he had to go to church w/half a haircut, and it was super obvious....lol

You don't have to be afraid of me, i won't even get mad, plus I know there would be no reason to get mad because i know you'll do great.

hahaha- i need to tell megan to read your blogs if she isn't already- she would love it! That is so funny! Steph you did so good! who cares if it was too short- you did such a more challenging cut than what the other girls were doing- other girls were probably just doing a typical guy's haircut- trim- BLAH- who cares- boring- and not challenging. That is really funny- and I know it was great- and I would totally let you touch my hair if megan weren't around! SO my boy haircut was my EX boyfriend! talk about aqcuard! We had just broken up= but I didn't know any guys cause i was only hanging out wiht him, and he had already promised- so he came- and he dumped me- so ofcourse I was nervous trying to "win him back"- oh brother. and I took forever on doing the stupid comb over cut- uh I was not like you! Meaning: I wasn't good at it! And I had never styled guys hair before- so I took wax in my hand- (alot) rubbed it in my hands and just rubbed it all over his head- hahhaahaha- it was awful and he was totally rude about it- and it was so awful. I felt like such an idiot. My teacher was like "good.....we need to work on teaching you how to style guys hair, you don't need that much wax" oh brother. Steph you are going to be such an awesome hair dresser. Somtimes don't you want to explain to people how hard school is- and you feel like people don't understand? like the dumb test parts- which isn't often- but still...! I love you! I'm so happy for you!
