    Default Gaming while getting a haircut

    Hey guys

    Its been awhile since i've last posted here. I've been busy on another project but an idea came to me today and i really wanted to start the topic.

    Recently i've found a place where i like to get my hair cut, i like the service but what really makes me excited to go there are the girls, its an awesome place. it always has 3-4 girls who are at their very minimum 8s, everytime i go there's a super hot girl working. Plus, the place seems to be gay guy free (no disrespect to gay guys, i just obviously like women more).

    So the first time i went there i felt a small eureka moment. Why don't we do more game there with hot girls? Its a great situation, shes "stuck" with you for the next 20-30 minutes while she cuts your hair, talking is natural because it makes the time go faster and feel less awkward, the girls there are usually very social and its easy to Number Close (more on this later) plus you need to go there from time to time anyways, why not kill two birds with one stone?.

    So after three haircut/game sessions i wanted to share my experience, here is my initial do's and dont's while haircut gaming.

    Do:
    -If you know you're getting a haircut and you already know a place where hot girls work DO groom yourself and appear clean shaven, especially your head. The girl is going to be tangling around your hair and looking at your face through the mirror a lot. A sloppy appearance is a big turn off, especially since these girls usually go to extra lengths to look good and stylish. So be sure to shampoo and shave.

    -DO walk in with a clear idea of what you want, i know as guys we don't really love/enjoy talking about hair styles and such, but this is precisely why knowing what you want will set you apart. The stylists always ask you very specific questions on what you want out of your haircut and giving specific answers shows you're both confident and are socially aware, i've found that asking for suggestions is good, but always give them a guideline first.

    -The openers we all know and love from the bar work pretty good here, but i've found the "female perspective" openers to work with double the potency here ("hey, i've been thinking this over today, let me get a girl perspective on this..."). Why? The girls here are usually with other girls in a small space all day and as such they get double gossipy. I used the jealous girlfriend two times and both times i got pretty big smiles and lively commentary.

    -I found that compliments and talk about her hair go down pretty well. Pretty much every stylist i've seen takes good care on their appearance and her hair, this is what i've said that has worked well:
    Me: "Hey, how long have you been growing your hair?"
    Her: "x months, why?"
    Me: "I think it looks pretty good, i like your style. I thought about it because my sister likes to keep her hair long but sometimes it gets very wrinkly and she looks like Hermione"
    Her: "oh yeah, she needs to do xyz and blah blah, my hair blah blah"
    Me: "Great"

    -These places usually have trendy/cool music, many girls working there seem to be the creative hipster type and enjoy music. I've found talking about what they like and such go down well. For example i did this today: (knocking on heavens door was playing and she started singing along.) "Hey you like guns n roses? Thats cool i really like some of their songs, what other kind of music do you like?"

    -DO number close, especially if you get IOIs, it goes down surprisingly easy, why? My theory is because they regularly get their number asked on a regular basis to make specific appointments with them for haircuts and such. If they see you only as a piece of business you will still number close because regular customers means tips and if your phone game is tight... If they don't just see you as a regular customer you will more easily number close because handing out numbers is regular business there and she won't really have to explain nothing to the other girls or bosses. Plus i regularly see the girls with their phone out and getting text messages all the time, it just seems very natural. The close gambit i've used is pretty standard ("hey good job, i like my hair. I gotta run now but you seem pretty fun, we should continue this conversation another time...")

    Now lets go ahead with the
    DONT'S:

    -Don't just sit there quietly and avoid conversation. I understand if you're the reserved kind of guy, but its really not going to fly at all in that kind of place, you look unconfident and boring in a place where the people are the opposite. Work out some routines before heading there.

    -Do not speak with a low tone of voice. There's music going around and machines buzzing all other the place, its bad if she has to ask "what?" to something you just said.

    -Don't be cheap, a lot of stylists have a tip box on their workplace. A two dollar tip at the end will make sure that you go away with a good impression.

    -Do not show signs of nervousness. Yes, strange new places can make you a little uncomfortable. But think about it for a little, the place is usually small and full of mirrors, she's going to look at your face a lot because of obvious reasons. Getting the collar too tight always gives me a small feeling of claustrophobia and makes me a little uneasy, every time the girls quickly picked up on it and asked me about it since i was acting cool and friendly before. Remember this is essentially daygame and the same rules apply, you need not be overly enthusiastic but you do need to be confident.

    -Don't go into a conversation where you ask her about cutting hair and the job details, its a pretty vanilla conversation and went very "meh" for me.

    So that's all i have for the moment, remember that even though its a pretty social environment the girls there are still working, so be cool and respectful and you'll be sure to at least leave the place with a good impression.

    Can you guys add any ideas or routines that have worked for you in the past? Any anecdotes or observations?

    Solid advice. Been wanting to try this, but never really put any effort into. Might have to rethink that now.

    Actually from recent experience, I played some solid game.

    First thing is when you come in, be smiling. First impressions are everything. Be friendly (not flirty) with the receptionist, check in, and take a seat. You get called up, and since you got the receptionist's name you can say "Thank you Sarah" or whatever and walk to the station (smiling). That dhv.

    She'll usually start a conversation with you, and all you have to do keep it fun and entertaining. Building up several threads of conversation (different subjects you can go back to, such as kids, family, friends, anything she tells you about herself) makes you seem like a genuine funny guy.
    Once you get her laughing, add a bit of light flirting. You can watch her eyes in the mirror when you say it and read body language. The mirror is a godsend, when she's looking at you directly you can check her out, when shes looking at you through the mirror maintain eye contact. I had a confident body posture (not slouching, relaxed position).

    I got her to the point where she had to stop cutting my hair because she was laughing so hard, and the other hair dresser across the room actually stopped cutting her client's hair (who tryed to AMOG me, not happening chump), and came over to see what was so funny and joined the convo for a bit.

    Moved the conversation to halloween, what she was doing, and she started talking about a party and how then said it was open invite. Asked if that included me, and she said yes it does. Used Style's? close of "How can I talk to you about when the party is going to be", to which she said "Well I just met you so I cant give you my number, but we do free trims so come back next week for a trim and Ill tell you"

    Came back next week, she instantly gave me her number and now the texting process begins.
