I have never liked the di Petro Todd philosophy on hair, which is to cut it so that it's perfect for one day and you're unhappy with it and need a haircut the next day, and desperately need a cut by six weeks.

This was never a good fit with geeks who have the money for a high end salon but want to be happy with the cut until they decide to come back (which is more the Vidal Sassoon philosophy on hair)

Will a salon go back in its place?
