    Ok so one of my good friends is a hairdresser and has been doing my hair for 10 years. She is ok not fantastic with my hair but I get a good deal ($110 for eyebrow wax, cut, full head of foils and blow dry!) and I haven't been too fussed about my hair over the years. It's kind of grown into a long non-style. It's down to bra strap level and all the same length and a mix of brown shades with some blonde highlights.
    Anyway, I've got a 4.5 month old and I can't wear my hair down as she's grabbing it and to be honest I can never be bothered wearing my hair down as it requires blow dry and straightening or it is a disgusting frizz ball. I wear it up every day. And I'm feeling a bit frumpy.
    My DH has been at me for years to get my hair done by a very speccy hairdresser he knows and I have resisted to now as I didn't want to offend my friend. But I have decided I want a major chop (up above my shoulders) and colour restyle and would like it done really well so I have agreed to get him to do my hair. To put it into perspective this hairdresser is the creative director for a chain of high end salons and mostly does international work on ad campaigns, movies, fashion shows. He's agreed to do my hair yay lucky me!
    So what do I tell my friend?! I hate these awkward situations. I can't be honest (lol) and say I wanted to get this amazing hairdresser to do my hair because he'll do a better job. That's mean even if it's true. I was thinking I could say that my DH bought me a voucher for Xmas for a makeover? It's almost true as I'll be getting it done around Xmas and he's offered to pay for it for my Xmas present. How do I have this conversation? I'm due to get my hair done by her next week and not sure if I should cancel or just get it done and not re-book for my next appointment. Breaking up with a hairdresser is hard enough but when they are your friend it's x1000 awkward. Depending how much I love my new do I may not go back to her and just get the fancy pants hairdresser to keep doing it. I have never liked my hair so if he can make my like my hair I will love him forever. I've never been to a fancy salon I am so excited for this big change! But I'm so dreading cancelling on my friend and explaining my new hairdo. Help!!
    I agree with what some of the other mums have said. Just tell her that your DH surprised you with a voucher to the flash hairdressers. I think that way her feelings will be spared.

    Why can't you ask your friend to give you a fancy pants style? She might surprise you

    OP, I stopped going to a long time friend and hairdresser because she just wasn't great and I never walked out feeling really happy with the service I was paying for.
    I'm fancy pants all the way now and I LOVE IT!!
    Enjoy!

    I'm going to second what someone said earlier - you need a GOOD hairdresser to do a short cut. When I was 18, I went and got a short chop at a cheap place and it was ruined - it was so so so horrible. Took me years to grow it back and a whole 14 years to get the guts to go that short again. This time around, I went to a better salon (i had been seeing the same hairdresser there for a couple of years), and I couldn't be happier with it.
    I certainly wouldn't be turning down such an awesome present from your DH!! Just explain that it's a gift

    I love your optimism @VicPark but not willing to risk such a major change with her.

    @misskittyfantastico that is how I feel, never really happy with what I'm getting. Yay that you've found a good hairdresser!

    Thanks for all the kind replies. I can't wait to get my new look. Making the appt today then I'll grow some and cancel my appointment with my friend for next week. My DH is taking the day off work to look after our DD when I go in so he's really going the extra mile for me and it's extra lovely as I know he would prefer me to keep my hair long lol but he's going along with this and I think he will love the new do

    This thread is making me consider getting a short hair cut. Have had it short twice in my life but hated it both times and just assumed I'm not a short hair person, but maybe I just need a better hairdresser..
