So Roommate decided it was time for me to get a haircut. Normally, I am profoundly indifferent to hair, but at this point, my hair had gotten a little out of control. After all, a woman of a certain age isn't always done a favor by longer hair. The problem was, I hadn't decided on a hairstyle.
Again, normally, this isn't a problem. The best haircut I ever got was picked out for me by my former coworker Paula and her stylist. Paula had had a rough day that week and I told her she could pick out any hairstyle she wanted for me. It sounds selfless and giving of me, doesn't it?
Yeah. It isn't. That's seriously how little I usually care about my hair, per se. I want to look decent over all, but hair...meh. It grows. You get a bad cut and you hate it, it grows out. You get a good cut and you love it, it grows out.
Anyway. Roommate and her coworker Kelly [who does a very nice job cutting hair] flipped through some hair magazines and the snipfest began. By the time Kelly was done, there was enough hair on the floor to make a whole new Lisa Marie.
And I had a hairstyle that makes Carol Brady
Yup. It's that...unsexy. Seriously. It is the hair equivalent of the mom jean. It's not the length. It's not the fact that my hair has a freaking mind of it's own. It's that this cut, that looked adorable on the model in the magazine, makes me look like like Carol Brady's less appealing sister.
I'm never getting lucky again.
