I’m just curious. I mean a cut is a cut, right?
Well, maybe if someone wanted major layers or something wacky done. I don’t know. All I know is that my hair was to the middle of my back when I went in to the salon today and they charged me extra to get it trimmed and layered. Did it take longer than when my hair was shorter? I don’t think so!
I’m not peeved or anything, though – I have that new haircut euphoria and am just happy to have NEW HAIR! :)
Seriously, I haven’t gone anywhere “professional” since before Emma was born. When she was a few months old I did brave a trip away (I was one of those “I can’t leave my baby” moms) – to the library. Across from the library was a Perfect Look and I impulsively went in to get my hair cut. Oh my, I just remembered I wrote a post about that! Here it IS. Read the post for the whole story, but basically the lady who cut my hair was trying to get me in for money because she was fixing a mess-up hair color job. I thought I would be okay since this was a hair CUT, not COLOR, but no. I heard the word, “Oops” as she was cutting my hair. Not the word you want to hear, right? She had cut layers too short. No it did not look good, and yes I endured her insincere cries of “It looks great!” and paid her.
I will never go to Perfect Look again! I’ve been burned too many times and have a lot more stories to tell. But I’ll spare you. Or save it for another post.
I also had something funny happen when I walked into the salon. If you follow this blog you probably know I’m pregnant. Well, as soon as I walked in everything buzzing around me conversation-wise was “Oh, so and so had her baby!” “How long did she push?” “A half hour!” “Wow!” and talking about kids and car seats and everything. It was so funny. I have no idea if they were already talking about it before I walked in or if the sight of my pregnant tummy brought the topic to their minds. It was just FUNNY.
Now I’m curious about something else. What is the most you’ve paid for a haircut? Today I paid more than I ever have at $30.00. Hence wondering why they charge so much! I think John wants me to go into the business now that he’s discovered how much they charge. lol I wonder how much the hairstylists make, though… they must be paid per hour…
Okay I’ve got to stop thinking about this. lol
