Read an Excerpt: 'Dump 'Em'

If the new haircut is a success, leave a note for your old hairdresser at her station saying, "Stopped in and had my hair done with _____. Thanks for everything but I've decided to make the change to her." Then the next time you see your old hairdresser, make a point of going over and acknowledging her. It doesn't have to be much, just a quick wave hello. The one second of awkwardness will pass quickly, making for a much easier transition to the new stylist, and before you know it, the discomfort will disappear.

Still not sure how to dump your hairdresser? Send her flowers.

What you can write:

Dear ______, Thank you for all your wonderful haircuts throughout the years. I've decided to take my hair in a new direction. Sincerely, ______________

The Gift That Keeps on Giving

Still looking for an easy way out? Dump your hairdresser by telling her that you were given a very generous gift certificate to another salon. Mention a big promotion at work, a milestone birthday, or a wedding anniversary.

Bonus: This option allows you to keep the salon door open should you wish to return in the future.

Locks of Love

Guess who's growing their hair out? You are! Tell your hairdresser that you've committed to donating your hair to Locks of Love, a nonprofit organization that gives hairpieces to disadvantaged children under the age of eigh teen who are suffering from medical hair loss. The minimum hair length it accepts is ten inches. Another option is to mention how much you love, love, love Rapunzel's or Fabio's hair, and wish you had long hair. Tell her that you've made the decision to just go for it—grow it out once and for all. If she offers to trim it for you, let her know that her prices are too high for what you need right now. She shouldn't expect to see you for years.

Lice, Lice, Lice, Yeah

Tell your hairdresser that you've picked up a bad case of head lice and had to shave your hair off. The good news is that you actually like it and are trying to decide whether to keep it that short or grow it out; either way, you won't be seeing her for a while.
