Put that cell phone away!

Keyword: cell phone, professional, distracted hairdresser

 

Okay all you stylists out there, I am gonna let you in on one of my pet peeves….cell phones!  Not just cell phones by themselves, but hair dressers (or makeup artists) that are on them more than they are focusing on their clients.

My sister is an accountant and she goes off to work and we don’t hear from her til she gets home.  My mom works in an office and she’ll call on her lunch break, but that’s all.  My friends that are teachers, I only hear from them after school.  So why do stylists need to have their phone out all day and text in the middle of a haircut?

 

Is there anything worse than sharing a story during a haircut only to look in the mirror and see your stylist doing this?

 

There have been a few times that maybe I was waiting for a phone call from a doctor, or the bank about something important, and if that is the case I always let my client know that I am awaiting an important phone call and might need to take it if it rings.  But other than that, I don’t touch my phone when a client is in my chair! I know if I was sitting down for some relaxing ”me” time and the person cutting my hair was stopping every 45 seconds to text her boyfriend, I would be extremely agitated. I find it very unprofessional and rude!

 

Have any of my non-stylist readers had this experience? I would love to hear your thoughts on it.

 

So that is my rant for the day! Sigh…I feel better now ;)
