I’m thinking about cheating….on my hairstylist. I have been a faithful client for about 8 years now. His salon is located in Effortown, the type of salon that you worry about whether or not you are dressed appropriately and have make up on ya know? The kind of place where if you don’t dress “up”, the staff is better dressed than you.
Now that said, when you walk in it has a lovely calm atmosphere, you are offered tea or coffee, water. On occasion, you are offered a taste of some sort of food that “you just have to try!” We, myself and my daughters feel like we have become part of the family; and being part of the family you don’t really have a say in what happens to your hair.
I remember a couple of years ago when Baby girl came home for Christmas and declared she needed a hair cut, it proboably went like this, “Mom, I need to get my hairs cut!” Yip, hairs, all of them not just one..she thinks she is sooooo funny! Anyhoo…we took the extra time to get ready…drove into Efforttown and had said cut performed. Just a bit cut off , just the ends please. Next thing ya know, the whole way home I heard “but now I look like a soccer Mom”. Just what every 20 year old wants to look like, lol.
I have been coloring my hair for a long, long, long time…I was blonde when I first entered the salon and was quickly “updated” to dark brown. Like a goof, I faithfully strolled into the salon every 6 weeks for a touch up. Leaving enough money each time that it caused more than a little bit of marital anxiety. Having been retold (told I was retiring – gee thanks employer!) keeping that schedule was not going to work.
Just what color was my hair, I mean, really really? I took a four month hiatus from color and cut to find the truth. Wow! I real hair color was no where as dark as they were taking me, and not just because of the grey dear invisible readers! Yes, yes, there was grey but not a ton. Into Efforttown I go. Salon guy was a bit pissy that I hadn’t been in, told him I wanted to grey gracefully and showed him a cool bob cut I wanted. Can you do this? Sure, sure, it will be easy he said. Guess what? Came out looking like a Soccer Mom with hooker blonde hair?!?
Its time I think to try something new…to cheat. I am soooo nervous of this…Can I do it?
