Snip! Snip!

On Monday evening 4/4/16 I walk into cosmetology school and was asked to do a cut and color.  So I walked up to the client and introduced myself and we talked about what she was wanting to do with her hair.  She had relaxed her hair for the last 35 years and no longer wanted to put the chemicals in and wanted to take off all the hair that had had chemicals on it - which was about 5 to 6 inches.  Leaving only about 1 1/2 to 2 inches left.  I was excited to help her.   I sat her in my chair, draped her and started cutting the chemical treated hair off.  I was about 80% finished with the cut and, SNIP! I cut my pointer finger.  I was completely shocked by what I had just done.  I excused myself walked into the back and got my instructor we cleaned and patched the cut up and he says to me, "now get back out there, you have to finish your client".  I was thinking what in the world, I just cut my finger and you want me to finish.  But, I did what I was told and got back out there.  I finished the cut and put semi burgundy red color in.  The client was a littler shocked to see her hair chopped off, but loved it.  I wish I would have remembered to take a before and after picture of the client.  So, instead you get to see a picture of my cut.
