Surrealness, or hairdressing terminology gets me every time

"Hi, my name is StyleyGeek, and I'd like to make an appointment for a haircut and a half head of foils."

"I'm sorry, we don't do a full head of foils."

"That's fine, I only want a half head."

"I mean, we just have one foils option. You can't choose between a full head and half head."

"But last time I came here I asked for a half head of foils and no one said anything. Anyway, I liked what I got."

"But we don't do a half head."

"Okay, so what does your one-and-only foils option involve?"

"We divide the hair up, and put foils in about half of it."

They just want to charge you twice as much.

Usually I'd agree with your cynicism, Breena, but this time, I don't think that's it.

This is the local polytech, and because you get your hair done by (well-supervised) trainees, they only charge $30 for colour, and $10 for a cut.

Was it a trainee receptionist too? Or just one of the trainee hairdressers?

Maybe that was it, Miss M.
