It amazes me how different barbers have different conceptions of length. When I tell the barber “leave an inch and a half on top,” I might end up with anything between 3/4 inch and two inches. This time I was left with about an inch. This is a solved problem people! Use a ruler!

And now I really want to know what her regular order is! 🧀+🍷+❓
