Charlie: Hey Ronnie. What’s up?
Ronnie: Not much. Where have you been?
Charlie: I was at a salon. I’ve just got a new haircut.
Ronnie: Yeah man. I noticed. You’re looking good with short hair.
Charlie: I don’t know. I had my last haircut three months ago. Are you sure I’m not looking weird?
Ronni: Just chill. You look cool. This haircut is trendy. Girls are gonna love it.
Charlie: That’s encouraging. I hope you’re right.
Charlie: Good morning.
Kemp: Good morning. What can I do for you today?
Charlie: I just need a haircut.
Kemp: Sure. How would you like me to cut it?
Charlie: Short, please.
Kemp: Yes, Sir. I see your hair’s quite rough. I’ll shampoo it first.
Charlie: No problem. Just make sure you cut it short but not too short.
Charlie: Hey Julie. You look different.
Julie: I had my hair cut, Charlie! Didn’t you noticed it?
Charlie: Oh, yes! Of course!
Julie: I just really don’t like it. I think I got a bad haircut.
Charlie: C’mon. It’s not that bad.
Julie: See?! Even you hated it. It is really bad. I feel awful.
Charlie: Good thing about hair is that it’ll grow again, Julie!
Julie: Hello! I’m in desperate need of your help, Kemp.
Kemp: Wow. You do sound like it.
Julie: I got this very bad haircut while traveling and now I just want to have it fixed. Any suggestions?
Kemp: Hmm...this cut made your hair look stringy!
Julie: Yes, I hate the excessive layers. I want you to cut it short. I also want curls if possible.
Kemp: Cutting it short won’t be a problem. And I’ll curl your ends toward your face to add volume. You’ll look great!
Julie: It’s all I want. Thank you!
