My happy hairdresser

My happy hairdresser

Add to favorites

Some years ago I read an article about things which make a person feel happy and satisfied at work. It was said that it is crucial to see the result of the work. It makes job rewarding and brings satisfaction to a person. And the opposite situation: repeated office routine without seeing any result makes a person feel bored and unsatisfied even when the salary is good.  From that point of view there were given some examples of rewarding jobs in the article. It was mentioned that being a hairdresser is one of the most satisfying jobs because hairdressers can see the result of their work every day. That impressed me.

After reading the article I had a conversation with my hairdresser Maria.  She absolutely agreed with the author. She says that her job is not easy but it brings her a lot of inspiration and satisfaction. Very often she feels physically tired after working day. But she gets a lot of smiles and gratitude words from her clients and that makes her happy and satisfied.

I always feel Maria`s positive energy. It is my pleasure to visit her. She has a variety of hobbies such as reading psychological literature and dancing. Maria communicates with different people a lot. So she is interested in psychology to understand people and their needs better. She is a passionate dancer of salsa, zouk and other popular social dances. Usually we discuss wide range of topics. And of course she makes magical things with my hair. After visiting her I feel beautiful and refreshed.

Dear Dasha,
It was so interesting to read your text. I have never thought about this factor to assess the job. Thinking about it I understood that it must be correct. Say hi to Marina. Does she know that she has become a celebrity.

Your score today is:
Words: 263
Content: 263х3 = 789
Language: 263 х 3= 789
Multimedia: 100
Total: 1678 points
I think it has been the highest so far due to the fact that you've proofread it and it is practically accurate.
Great job! Congratulations!
A tip - it would be grate to make a reference to the article or to mention the author.
