The Hairdresser

At the hairdressers’, shampoo rinsing in the sink behind you, water drip drip drip. Towel drying your tresses then combing out  the knots slick slick slick  time now for the magic scissor blades eating at your hair clip clip clip.

Talk of last nights conquests, who was with who and did what dig dig dig dig. Would you like a coffee, tea or water, coffee black  no sugar, please sip sip sip . Get the feathering done now, scissor blades flash hair falls snip snip snip snip  Oh! that’s my favourite song, oh yeah! it is just so good to dance to click click  click.

Are you holidaying this year?on safari my, me? not this year I can’t afford the trip trip trip. The junior brings the  coffee in her pretty flip flops painted toes go flip flip flip. Spraying lacquer, styling mousse , firming  gel and hot brush, hair goes flick flick flick.

Last touches now,a tease here, a lift there.Wow that looks good don’t ya think ! slick slick slick  Time to pay into your purse you unzip zip zip ,zip and a tip yes, another dip dip dip !


cutting your souls

Men and women come in for styles outrageous as they dare dare dare.  Couples too come  for his and hers styles and I do the pair pair pair. They are always pleased and say my rates are fair fair fair.

They come to me once a month so I can cut their hair hair hair. I  make them beautiful so their friends will stare stare stare stare.   They say my styles are beautiful, amazing yes I have a flair flair flair.

They have no idea I am collecting their souls, they don’t care care care.They get the unique styles they want, I get souls which I will not share share share share. As I sweep up the cuttings from the floor, well they are spare spare spare.

I am never late, my job is my life and I live up the stairs stair stair  stair. This is my life cutting their souls for me it is like breathing  air air air air ………………………..

    Definitely brought the snip snip snip of the hairdressers to mind, Willow, and the sinking feeling to me when I pay the bill, bill bill after the full transformation. 😀 (I’m always left wondering should I tip or not? I do, but the whole cost nearly give me a heart attack..!!) great worked out rhythm and poem, a treat to read. xPenx

    Thanks, I was at the hairdressers yesterday hence the muse! I usually tip as you say it bumps the price up. I just got to thinking they draw so much information out of you while snipping away and they sweep up your hair . The idea just seeded itself that it could be our souls the hairdresser was collecting. HA! just a silly thought. xx

    The repetition in this one makes me imagine it set to music somehow. Would make a very intriguing song! I’m going to remember this the next time I am in a salon 🙂

    I did hear it as a song and that was just how it came out.
