I second that you’re just being self-conscious. But that said, if you go down into the med school area (south of 95 around Cedar St) you’ll find people are more your age since you’ll start running into med and grad students. Fewer nice places to study open to the public though but the Common Grounds that just opened where blue state used to be could be nice.

I really like Liyah at nightbird salon in east rock. Saw her when I was growing out a buzz cut (I’m female) and she made my mop look like a real haircut. She’ll tell you if what you want won’t look good too, which I appreciate. Also had a good experience with Capture Salon downtown but you may have to emphasize how short you want to go— I went long to bob there and they left it a little longer than I wanted.
