How To Break Up with Anyone

"I've been in this relationship for almost six years now and I'm not happy anymore," says Jenny. "I need to break up with my hairstylist, but I don't know how!" The 26-year-old used to love going to the salon, but says now her trims and color treatments end in disaster. "The worst experience I've had with my hairstylist was when I got my hair colored.

And most of them said they want to know the truth. They want to be able to correct, if not with you, but with future clients." The worst thing you can do is avoid this person, who has become a trusted confidant after all of those hours of conversation while they cut your hair. "It hurts their feelings and they want to know." Rachael asks Jenny if she feels ready to face her stylist and give her the bad news and she says she is eager to put the advice to use. "I feel confident," Jenny says. "I've got to do it!" But before she heads to the salon, Jodyne offers one last suggestion. "Remember, less is more. You want to get in and out as quickly as possible," she says. "Don't over talk!"
