Hi there, just got in from the SF Pride parade - wondering if anyone could recommend a good TG-friendly hairdresser in the city? I know things are a little better in San Francisco, but certainly back home most hairdressers would baulk a little at a man handing them a photo of a woman and saying "that's the hairstyle I want".

Oh wow. That should be pretty easy. let me just go tweet my peeps in SF. I'd expect to get a few suggestions soon.

However, know that in SF, you're going to have a tough time finding ANY hairdresser who'd even turn their head at that, let alone balk.

Should be no-to-little sweat in California, anyway! When I was working in a salon, we had only one hairdresser who, while very religious and outspoken about her beliefs about homosexuality, actually was super-thrilled, polite, and having a blast making over a 40-something year old male who was going to a Cher impersonation contest. [Smile]

There's a chance you might run into an arse, but keep in mind you're a customer and that tends to sway people a lot. And like Heather said, tough chance finding a bigot in SF. Have fun!

(Of course, prolly most of my SF people are at pride right now, so may be a day or so.)

Thanks so much - I went and met Kaitrin on Tuesday, she was very supportive, spent a long time talking me through the whole thing beforehand. I actually have a sneaking suspicion that she stayed behind after regular hours to fit me in.

To be honest, the first thing I did was went home and cried - I think in a way I was disappointed that it very much wasn't a sex change, if that makes sense. Anyway, I had a thread for this already, so I guess I'll talk about it there.
