Hairstylist (HS): Kya karna hai ?
Me: Hair cut karna hai.
Me to my friend: Please translate to him, I can’t speak proper Hindi.
Friend: Arre inko cut chahiye, konsa cut inko suit karega?
HS: Ma’am aapka hair curly hai,  koi bhi cut kiya tho bi, same dikhega.
Me (horrified) to my friend: So, he’s telling me not to cut my hair ?
Friend translates to HS.
HS: Nahi madam, cut karo.
Me: Okay, bangs aur layers chahiye.
HS: Ma’am, bangs aapke curly baal ke liye achche nahi lagenge.
Me horrified again: Aur layers ?
HS: Layers cut kiye tho aise dikhenge. (Gestures a bush on his head )
Me: Nooooooo !!! Mere utne nahi hai !!!!!
HS and my friend burst out laughing looking at my horrified expression.
HS: Ma’am aapka hair curly hai,  koi bhi cut kiya tho bi, same dikhega. Ye product try karo baal achche dikhenge
Me convinced he’s not the person I’m supposed to be talking to, I take the product and just act like I’m checking it out… hmm… Haan… and we leave ..

Hairstylist (HS): What do you want to do?
Me: I wanted a hair cut. (duhh!!)
Me to my friend: Please translate to him, I can’t speak proper Hindi.
Friend: She wants a hair cut, which cut will suit her?
HS: Ma’am, your hair is curly. All the hair cuts will look the same on your hair.
Me (horrified) to my friend: So, he’s telling me not to cut my hair ?
Friend translates to HS.
HS: No madam, you can cut your hair.
Me: Okay, I want bangs and layers
HS: Ma’am, for your curly hair, bangs won’t look good.
Me horrified again: And layers ?
HS: If you try a layer cut, your hair will look like this. (Gestures a bush on his head)
Me: Nooooooo !!! I don’t have that much hair !!!!!
He and my friend burst out laughing after seeing my horrified expression.
HS: Ma’am your hair is curly. All the haircuts will look the same on your hair. Try this product for your hair, they’ll look good.
Me convinced he’s not the person I’m supposed to be talking to, I take the product and just act like I’m checking it out… hmm… haan… ok… and we leave ..

HS: Yes I do have.
Me: Which one ?
HS: Madam, product’s name is Spirals. But, right now we don’t have its stock with us.
Me: Okay
HS: I am setting your hair now. After setting ur hair, youll be able to see your cut properly. Your hair are curly right, so you can’t make out the cut right now.
Me (totally fed up hearing the word curly): Yes okay do it!!

After the haircut I post my pic in my new haircut to some friends…


Some friends: straight hair suits you !
Me (in full defend-my-curls mode): oh really ? I love my curls !!!
