My dad, who is bald, always said: “God made just a few perfect heads, all the rest he put hair on”. Growing up that always made me laugh. My head is not perfect therefore is covered with hair, hair that I must deal with on a regular basis.
For years, I did what most women (and men) do and that was to go the salon to get a haircut. Sometime not really being able to afford it but I had to get a haircut regardless. When I could afford it financially, my busy schedule many times felt stretched to take the time to go to the hairstylist.
One day I reached my limit. I had been going to a stylist who I really liked for over nine years, she gave me a good cut and the cost was reasonable. I am a very punctual person and respect the time of others and expect the same from others. Whenever my appointment was scheduled, I was there at least 10 minutes early. I understand that things happen, but she began to continually take me back late. I can handle 10 to 15 minutes once in a while, but when it becomes a habit, then I feel my time is not respected nor am I being respected as a customer.
Anyway, on this particular day, my appointment was scheduled for 4:30pm, she didn’t take me back until 4:55, that is 25 minutes late. I would have left, but I really needed a haircut, I was depending on her to cut my hair. On that day, while waiting 25-minutes later than my scheduled appointed, I decided that I was no longer going to rely on someone else to cut my hair, my time and money is to valuable.
Some may say, “why didn’t you just find another stylist?” I actually did try a couple of other stylists, none of which I thought were any more efficient time wise than my old stylist and all were more expensive. Besides, how would I handle getting my hair cut if I couldn’t afford a sstylist say from a job loss, how would I get my haircut? How did people back in the “old days” get their haircut? They did it themselves. Enter the Flowbee.
The Flowbee is a vacuum haircut. You may remember Flowbee on TV in the early 90’s. The Flowbee is about $80 and for me financially paid for itself in three months (two months if I would have gotten my hair blow dried at the stylist, which I never did)
It is fantastic! I get free haircuts anytime I want and am saving money and more importantly, time, in the process. I have saved myself about two hours in time, counting travel time, wait time and cut time, two extra hours a month is a lot. Most importantly I have one more thing that I am not relying on someone else for. I have become self-reliant when it comes to haircuts. I have used the Flowbee for over 10 years now and I have never looked back or been to a stylist since. How many people can say they can get a haircut when they want for FREE!
Yes, a Flowbee will save you money and time on haircuts. Most importantly will add one more thing to you can be self-reliance on. Go ahead, get a Flowbee!
