Oh SPG, I learnt my lesson a long time ago about going to just anyone. I have only 1 person who i ever let touch my hair, 1 person who will only ever do my eyelashes and either or can touch my eyebrows but i generally prefer my hairdresser doing them as she is much quicker(less painful) and cheaper too.
Hope your next experience isnt too bad. If you were closer to me, i would recommend my hair dresser to you(i would say she was worth the travel but maybe not to you). Inbox me if you would like her details anyway.
