Hairdresser Business Owner (HBO): you’ve been in before haven’t you?
Wendy: yes, only once several months ago, its grown a lot and kept a very good shape, it was a good cut
HBO: yes, I remember. Lucia, the Phillipino lady, cut your hair really short. She’s in the Phillipines as the moment, she owns a bed and breakfast there and its their peak season, its alright for some!
HBO: your scalp is a bit sensitive, do you have a stressful job?
Wendy: (giggles) Sort of because…(unpublishable)
While the assistant washes my way-past-its-cut-by-date mop the HBO checks her records.
HBO: you came in here last September, no wonder its grown so much
Wendy: I’m impressed that you recognised me
We talked about her business, she hasn’t been hit by the credit crisis because ‘everyone needs a haircut’ and her business has been established for over 9 years. We both agreed that we liked Reading a lot because of the nice people we’ve met here. She was born in Reading, studied in London with Vidal Sassoon, travelled the world then came back to Reading to set-up her business.
It’s the best haircut I’ve had in over a decade.
I’m a very happy bunny
