I've cheated on my hairdresser

Have you ever strayed from your regular hairdresser only to find you’d made a huge mistake? Were you wracked by guilt? Did you immediately slink back and beg forgiveness or did you decide to tough it out for a while with your new ‘find’ in the vain hope that you’d eventually grow to love him or her just as much?

I recently ditched my hairdresser after ten years but didn’t have the guts to tell him. I moved house and simply needed to find someone closer to where I live. There is no reason I should feel bad about it and yet I do.

It’s worse than cheating on your partner. At least with your partner there’s a chance your deception won’t ever be revealed, provided you’re clever enough to cover your tracks.  But your hairdresser will definitely twig that something is up the moment he sees you. Your traitorous new look will hit him like a blow to the stomach.

I’ve had brief flings with other hairdressers before now but have always lived to regret them.  Like the time my Dannii Minogue – inspired restyle ended up looking as if I’d had a close encounter with a vengeful Edward Scissorhands. It took a whole year to grow that mess out!

On each occasion my long term hairdresser welcomed me back without so much as an admonishment. But this time is different. I’ve been away for months now and it’s unlikely that I’ll ever return. I live in fear that I’ll bump into him some day soon. How can I break it to him that his Gallic charm has been replaced by a free spirited biker chick with a gift for belly dancing? And that she’s a great hairdresser to boot!
