Although our long spring of isolation may be nearing an end, I feel that caution is still the best course until we see a definite downturn in cases. My family members, much younger than I who have had it, say it is not your ordinary flu and tell me that avoiding it is the best course. My one daughter who works in ER says she has never seen anything like this.

Let's see if we can make a little lemonade out of the coronavirus lemon we have been served. In almost all areas, hair salons/barber shops have been closed. Unless your spouse, in desperation, has taken scissors to your hair, you are likely looking a little unkempt or shaggy at best, the present company included - My Monday selfie is proof. My last hair cut / styling was around mid-February, just before my trip to Virginia. Just before that trip I did get an outstanding style that has grown in beautifully to a near shoulder length bob.

So now is the time to consider a feminine style for yourself. You know the one you always wanted to try. Hopefully, you have enough hair left to play with, so why not? Have you ever been to a female or unisex salon? The old classic barbershops are dying off and if you want more than just a buzz cut, now is your chance!
I found a wonderful site that gives the timid a how-to on “Confidently Navigating Your Visit To The Salon”.
Here is the lead-in:
Most guys have rarely stepped foot into this historically female territory, much less in seek of services, much less with their long manes on the line.
A pair of scissors approaching your locks can be concerning, even without having to provide direction to a stylist in an unfamiliar environment or being disoriented by foreign sounds, smells, and activities.
Your first trip can be harrowing. For that reason, we are offering this introduction to the salon experience for men, where we provide the tips you need to confidently navigate your visit to the salon.
The site discusses “What To Say At The Salon?”, “Terms You May Hear” and “Enjoy The Shampoo Experience”. Not your granddad's barber shops.
See this as a new ESCAPE opportunity.
