I've been very fortunate to have a mum as a hairdresser, and with the exception of 2 years living overseas, I've never been to another hairdresser (and as such never had to pay for it!). I have long, naturally wavy brownish blondish hair and usually just get highlights (and consequent roots) done every 2 months or so, and the odd trim.
My mum is going through a stressful time atm, moving house etc and I'm in need of some hair love. I don't really want to bother her (even though she would oblige) and DH suggested I go to another hairdresser (despite the fact I told him it would Prob cost $200). He's quite keen for me to do something new with my hair (not dramatic, just more than what I normally have done).
I'm not sure whether or not it's a good idea... ? A bit worried I would offend my mum by going elsewhere (I know exactly what she would say), a bit worried at just how much it might cost and a bit worried about doing anything too dramatic in case I don't like it. I'm also 35 wks pregnant and not up for a style that requires a lot if maintenance etc.
What should I do?
