Q: Hi, I have a phobia or fear to get my hair cut. Do you know how to correct it?
A: Basically, if what you have is an authentic phobia concerning the act of having your hair cut, you need to consult with a therapist
to overcome the problem, as there may be a more deep-seated issue to blame for your fear. I am neither licensed, nor am I qualified to
address psychological issues (neither is any other hairdresser).
If, however, you mean “phobia” as in simply afraid of getting it cut – without deep-seated issues
or anxiety/panic attacks when you approach a salon chair – then my best recommendation is to find a stylist you are comfortable with and
start small. In other words, once you find someone you are comfortable with, have him, or her, perform a trim on your hair. He/she
should cut the most minimal amount possible.
Then as you get more comfortable, you can slowly make gradual changes to your hair until you reach the style you desire.
