    Perhaps she was oblivious for the first 5 minutes. Confused for the next 5. Shocked for the next 5. Peeved for the next 5, ****ed for the next 5..

    I don't know, I'm not a hairdresser, but as far as I know, they're entirely capable of saying "Hey, while you feed the baby, I will stop cutting as I don't want (xyz) to happen, if that's ok with you?" Instead of just walking off mid cut, then saying, later on, something about privacy reasons (and none of the potential hazards you have mentioned) and offering a junior stylist to complete her work.
    No, I don't have any children. Thanks for asking. 12 months of trying and still no baby, therefore I have no right to an opinion regardless of the fact around 40% of my clientele is mothers with young kids, and I have to deal with situations like this on weekly basis.

    I said in both my responses what actions the stylist should've taken, and they matched up pretty well with you're second paragraph, and that the actions they duff take were reprehensible.

    Good on you VanityFey... Hate when people dismiss your opinion because you haven't had a baby. Best of luck with your trying.

    I asked my hairdresser sister about this and she said that while people moving about to answer phones, drink coffee, attend to child can sometimes be annoying, its part of the job and she'd never tell anyone they couldn't do it. As for bf'ing, she had mothers doing it all the time with no issues and she herself bf her kids when getting co workers to style her hair while on mat leave. She thinks it was a massive mistake for this girl to walk off without a word and I agree. Also, while a junior may very well do just as good a job, I'd hate to have two different people cut my hair because a lot of people cut differently. IF the mother had said 'please stop while I feed my child' then it's well within their rights to say if we stop you will need to have your style finished by someone else so we don't run overtime. But the mother had no say because she wasn't told that the hairdresser would stop and why.

    A big mistake on the hairdressers part and Im sure her biggest lesson out of this is...communication!

    Does anyone else think (yes, jumping to conclusions because clearly I wasn't there), that the hairdresser may have just got jack of her customers doing 'things' while she's cutting hair and walked off in a huff to prove a point? Then when it all got blown up went ooops, umm, I did it for privacy or something like that.

    Oh for goodness sake- where exactly did I say you don't have kids so can't have an opinion? How did you make that leap?! All I was responding to was your comment that the mother should have waited til the blow dry- sometimes it's impossible to communicate that, if your child is a baby. Toddlers are different, sure. You don't have to have a baby to realise that, but if you do it's probably more obvious. Not every comment is meant as an attack, mine certainly wasn't. All the best with ttc, and fwiw I don't go around having digs at people because of their parental status.

    Hair in babies face or mouth, fine. Accidentally cut with scissors, okay I can see how someone might think that's reasonable. But refusing to serve the body of a breastfeeding woman? I don't have that much hair on my nipple so I don't really see the issue.

    Do people know what servicing your body means? Why are people having a problem understanding that? It's a service to your body......... ?? Someone is servicing you, personally, touching you, not handing you goods, but a service. to your body.

    ?? She didn't have a problem speaking up, so I really doubt she went through 5min intervals of emotions she couldn't express. Her problem was being offered someone by her standards, less qualified to finish her hair.

    I'm a mum of 2 that breastfed both for a long time, and I agree with you. It's not a matter of whether you have children or breastfeed yourself. This is obviously a social behavioural problem

    What does that mean? I'm still being quoted, the same people who've been here from the start. Am I allowed to respond, is that ok with you?
