Bob: I’m pretty basic. I try to get a haircut at least once a month. I always go to the same salon because it’s near my house. Plus, the hairdresser is my close friend and he already knows my style. So If I just ask him to keep the same old cut, he’ll know I like my hair short in the back and my sideburns long. Sometimes, when I want to give a good first impression during a job interview I stop by the salon just to get a trim. What about you, Rachel?
Rachel: I’m the complete opposite of you, Bob. Some days I spend more time at the hairdresser than at my own house. But I’m a woman, and you know I always need to have my nails and eyebrows done, my legs waxed, and I’d rather do it all with the help of a professional. As for my hair, I’ve done a lot of things to change it, such as getting a perm, straightening and dying it. Besides I have bangs and everybody knows how complicated It is to keep it under control and always at the right length. There’s still the makeover and sometimes I go to the salon to get a facial. I like to take care of myself, as you must’ve noticed, but the reason I stay for so long at the salon is not just that. That’s where I find my friends to catch up on all the gossip. So it’s also about social gatherings. Sometimes I even make up the excuse of getting a wash just to chat away.
