That's if they even listened to you in the first place and didn't do the exact opposite of what you specifically asked them not to. Either way, your cut then grows out poorly resulting in frequent visits for exactly the same thing: maybe looks great when you leave and then, rarely ever again. Rinse. Repeat.
Well, there was that one local hairdresser who wasn't too bad. They had some potential, perhaps you'll give them another go. You call and make a booking for a few weeks later. Arriving right on time you learn that your chosen hairdresser isn't there and the salon owner tries to put you with someone else. Supposedly they are "just as good". When you inquire further it seems your particular hairdresser no longer works at the salon and no one has any idea what happened to them. This isn't the first time you've heard of this. You silently start to wonder if there might be a serial killer on the loose.
With the exception of that last bit, this all sounds painfully familiar, right? Why isn't there an alternative? One that fully understands and caters to the needs of whom this story resonates with most soundly? Well, there is. Tom Zappala's practice has been intentionally designed to support those who have long struggled with what has been described here. Perhaps you're just someone who finds the entire salon environment itself to be an anxious, noisy, or uncomfortable environment to be in? You will especially find the space here to be one that is safe, sensitive and considerate of those needs.
Too good to be true? Rest assured, this isn't like any place you've been before. To be clear, Tom is not a conventional salon hairdresser who simply chose to work alone. No, the terms 'hairdresser' and 'salon' are not at all accurate or desired descriptors. Make no mistake, the highly acclaimed success Tom has built is due to a deliberate avoidance of the flawed indoctrination and training that the hairdressing industry provides and prides itself on. Quite right, Tom's thriving practice is a testament that challenging the established norms has resonated soundly, throughout Australia and well beyond.
