If you’re anything like me, these are the words you find yourself practising in front of the bathroom mirror before each and every trip to the hairdresser. Anyone who knows me knows that for the past 6+ years I have kept regular 6-8 week appointments with the same hairdresser because I’m more than a little precious when it comes to my bonce and I don’t let any old Edward Scissorhands run wild. I’ve even flown home so as not to break an appointment. So you might be somewhat surprised to learn that in a bid to try something new and save a few quid in the process I booked an appointment to get my hair cut at a training academy. Not just any old training academy but Vidal Sassoon‘s on Brook Street.
