Happy Hair Cut to me! I don't know when it happened. When did a haircut become an event in itself? I mean, if someone asked me what I got up to this weekend I would tell them that I got my hair cut and coloured on Saturday. It doesn't really matter because I think I will always be excited and look forward to a future haircut. In fact, I'm already delighted at the prospect of my next one.
I have been going to the same hair place since my wedding in 2010. The lady that usually cuts my hair always gives me a great deal, refuses my tips, talks a lot of smack about others and is full of loads and loads of B.S. Yet, she's like the bartender at the bar.. I always open up and yap my face off when I go to see her. I have no idea why, but I enjoy my hair cuts for that reason. I endure her staring at herself in the mirror while she talks to me just so I can selfishly blab whatever I feel like blabbing about. It feels good, plus I always come out looking great!
She no longer works Saturdays, so she sent me to her daughter in law to do my hair. I was apprehensive because I didn't really know what I wanted with my colour and wanted to ask my hairdresser's opinion and I was nervous that it was going to be quite expensive. The hair cut turned out nice, the colour was good and it was indeed much more expensive. I wish she had given me more highlights but we weren't sure how they'd turn out, so she gave me two under all of my layers. Her company was the best part though. She was really down to earth and we had our baby girls in common. We had plenty to chit chat about and it was really enjoyable. I don't think I've ever really enjoyed the company at a hair cut as much as I did on Saturday. Do you ever get that with another girl where you think- we would so be friends. (Outside of blogging of course.) But then, never act on it. It's kind of awkward right? I always feel kind of desperate but I do know for a fact that we're all the same. We could all use a new friend!
The haircut turned out to be the highlight of me entire weekend. The rest was less than impressive. We've been busy putting our house back in order and doing the odd jobs here and there to make this place look sell-able. We had a lot of painting of doors, baseboards, closets and more doors to do. I'll update and post pictures once everything is finished!
