It’s honestly not about if the haircut you just got is any good. Truth be told, for this feeling to be felt, it’s sort of irrelevant if you’re going to a friend that has a pair of scissors or the person you go to is “the best.”
Whether or not you’re Tony Soprano or Bryce Harper, a fresh cut and clean up is something that doesn’t have anything to do with quality so much as it does with cleanliness.
Sure, if it looks good, that’s a bonus. But stepping out of the salon or barbershop or wherever you go, knowing you look–at the very least–better than you did when you walked in is a great feeling.
Polar Opposite of this Feeling?: Thinking you have a great haircut, feeling great about yourself, then you catch a glimpse in your own normal mirror and finding out you were way, way off.
