Salon Day

The last time I went to get a haircut was, um, a few months ago. Yeah, I'm not one to fuss, for sure. I told her to leave it long, just trim it up so it's all one length, so when it gets hot I can pull it all into a pony. She did exactly that, and I was okay with it for a while.

I hate it now. Yeah, a pony it is, since it's hot and muggy now every single day, but it looks really severe and I feel, well, frumpy.

So today I'm going back in for a ... I'm so scared I can hardly write the word...PERM!!! And layers, all over, a medium long shag of curls. Ha ha ha, I think I'm going to look like someone else! Isn't that funny? I have this vision of full, curly, sexy hair that will accentuate my eyes and cheekbones.

Yeah, right. It'll still be me peeking out from those curls. But that's me, I may be totally scared, and I'll go ahead and do it anyway. Wish me luck!

Go for it! If it doesn't work out, you can always shave your head.

Good luck! I'm sure it will come out great. You can join me and my daughter in our "curly club":)

Well, how did it go???

All is well...I'm not cryin' or anything! If you've ever gotten a perm, you know it's TIGHT the first week or so, but I think I'm going to like it. My hair person is like way into "product", so I had a bit of a helmet head today. Ha ha ha!

sciencegirl - I use the clippers on Hubby all the time, if it's too bad, I'll use 'em!!!

Maybe I'll post a pic next week, after the "let down"

Good for you! No tears means a success in my book!

Simply Heather said...

OK-NOW...we've waited a whole entire day (I think)...so...did you do it? Do you like it? Do we get some kind of sneak peak at a curl?


Simply Heather said...

ooooops...I just realized that you already made that comment - my bad :)

Jen said...

ooooh! I am excited for you! I hope it turns out beautifully!

Just saw the comment that all looks good, and I am happy to hear that.
