Admire with your eyes not your hands
If you find yourself in the compromising position of wanting to touch someone else’s hair please remember this rule. Yes, we know the technique is interesting, but if you are not myself, my mother, or my beautician, you get a strong side eye from me already.
I don’t know where your hands have been or when the last time you washed them was, but don’t underestimate or be offended when I offer you some hand sanitizer before your reach your paws in my direction.
While we are on the note of cleanliness, please note that you will not make it this far unless you ask first. While many times I will say yes, I like to think of it as an invite-only. Perhaps a checkpoint if you will. This rule especially applies if you are a stranger.
I like my personal space. Love it actually! Please show respect to the strands that grow on my head, as well as to the ones I have added on for length.
While this encounter did not seem to play out as dramatically as the day it happened, I look back on it as if it were something from a movie.
Was I offended when she touched my hair? Quite honestly, not really. Mainly being because she was a person I knew and trusted. Had it been a stranger, it would have been a whole other story.
To me, yes it does make a difference on how well you know the person. I really don’t see how some people can be so bold. Certainly, not me! For some, this may not be a big deal.
For others hair fondling should be considered a felony (I am somewhere in between the two extremes). I beg these questions to you guys, Do you get upset when someone touches your hair? or Does it make a difference on whether you know them or not what your reaction will be on invading your personal space?
