First Day Hair

In honor of it being the first day of the new semester, I had my hair trimmed today. After all, one should look tidy and professional for the beginning of classes, right?

I've been avoiding having my hair cut in the UK on principle, the principle of objecting to places charging more to cut long hair than short hair. It's become silly. As drplokta observed, would I rather pay a little extra to have my hair trimmed and have it be cheap, or pay more overall for equality in pricing? And yet, as luck would have it, without trying for a place with equal pricing, I ended up at a place that had it for cuts. (Not blow drying, but then I can understand there's more work to dry long hair. There isn't to cut it.)

Even better, the hair washer recommended local restaurants with enthusiasm and detail, and the stylist chatted happily with me about Italo Calvino, ancient astronomy, and medieval geography. Not a bad way to start the semester, really.
