Too much excitement just might kill me!
My hair, that is! And about time too.
I went to our local salon – just a short walk from home. I like to support local businesses when I can, and you can’t beat that for convenience. Fortunately, they were also great. It’s always a bit hit and miss finding a new hairdresser!
And now – the proof!
The waves are from wearing it in a plait about 23.9 hours a day, to stop Monkey pulling it out and generally just keep it out of the way.
Also – you can’t tell from the photos but that mustard yellow singlet is a brand new $9 purchase from Target, and so not my colour. What was I thinking??
Then, an hour and a half and $68 later…
I’m really happy with it. They cut layers into it (which I’ve never had before) – it’s taken some of the weight out but kept most of the length. And it will never look that good again, because I have neither the time, inclination or physical capability to blow wave my own hair.
It was nice to sit still for over an hour, but I had to laugh when the hairdresser asked me about my daily hair routine. Most days I manage to brush it and re-plait it, and once a week I wash it with cheap supermarket product… and that’s the extent of it.
They recommend going back every 6 weeks for a trim. Ha! It might be nice, but at $68 a pop, that’s not going to happen. Maybe I’ll try to go twice a year though instead of once every two years. And also – they offer free fringe trims! So I can stop doing it myself, if I just take a short walk down the road. Even Monkey should be able to tolerate a 5 minute fringe trim.
I’ll have to see how it wears over the next few weeks. But at least for now I don’t sit on it every time I sit down.
