Has a Stranger Ever Asked Where You Get Your Hair Done?

Call it the ultimate of hair compliments. You're strolling along, minding your own beeswax, when all of the sudden, a stranger turns and asks, "Where do you get your hair done?" Yes, there are ways to find out where people in various cities go for their stylings, but what beats making a query with the source directly?

For me, I remember one particular situation well. It was a rainy day in Chicago and although my hair was soaked, the haircut still held up, as evidenced by a newbie in town asking about my salon of choice. What about you? Have you ever been approached by an admirer of your locks? Or perhaps have you ever had someone ask to take a picture of your admirable hairdo to bring back to her own stylist?

Yes and usually I get complements after a few months of not getting a cut. Some people also ask how I get my hair really jet black... (Simple: henna.)

I've had pple ask about my color and cut which is nice because my color is natural and i hadn't cut my hair in about a year when they had asked. lol But, I do like to compliment on other pple's hair just because I know it'll make their day.

Yes, and it is funny because I had a cheapo haircut ($10.00) from a small men's barber shop. But they did a great job and since my hair grew incredibly fast and it was a precision cut I had to get a touch up every two to three weeks to keep it the length I wanted. If it was anymore expensive I couldn't have afforded to keep it.

I've been asked about colour about 3 times, but never about my haircut, but given that I think my hair colour is far superior to the haircut, it makes sense.

Yes. This happens to me a lot. I am African American and I find that women of color will often ask bc it's really hard to find a great stylist for Black women's hair. I have a great one and have been going to her since a was in 5th grade. Now my hair is long/thick and in great shape and wmn. will freq. ask where I get my hair done on the street.

I get asked where I get my highlights done every once and a while. The thing is, I don't have highlights (I've never dyed my hair). But I do tell them where I get my hair cut.

I have been asked, but I feel like that comes with having braids in a city where there aren't a lot of place to get African American hair styled professionally. Luckily my mom does my hair for me.

Yep. Though usually it's the color and not the cut so much they're asking about.
