WHILE many of us love our jobs, most occupations come with at least a few bugbears.
And one hair stylist, from the US, has taken to TikTok to reveal hers.

In a short clip shared on social media, Shannon listed all of the things she “hates” about her profession.
Among the occurrences that offend her most include clients lifting their head in the shampoo bowl and those who talk during a blow dry.
She also notes that “unrealistic expectations” are another negative of her job.
Continuing to vent, Shannon goes on to list toxic salon environments and stylists hating on other stylists as big no-no’s for her, along with hairstylists who do what they want instead of what the client wants.
The post has since been viewed over 77,000 times and inundated with comments from both hairdressers and clients.
And it turns out a many of her social media followers had a lot to say on the matter, too.
“My hairdresser always talk to me while blow drying and I can’t hear a thing I feel so bad,” wrote one.
A second penned: “Unless the client lets the stylist do what they want, do what the client wants.”
Another commented: “I lift my head when my stylist gets the lowest part of my hair in the back so she doesn’t have to hold up the weight of my head she’s always thanked me.”
In response, one person in the industry wrote: “We’re always taught to tell people to not lift their heads because water can run down their backs that way.”
Elsewhere, one hairstylist recalled: “Another stylist literally took a vivid client from me lmfao. She said I’ll get her in the shampoo bowl to help you out…did the whole colour.”
Shannon sympathised: “I’m so sorry that happened to you. When I was newer I had a stylist do the same to me.
It was on my books and she took the whole service from me.”
