Another thing that happens when you move is that you lose your very trusted, much loved, (in my case) spiritually inspiring, hair stylist. I was able to have her do my hair one more time when I went to California for Christmas. But now, I need to find someone here that I can trust my hair and Mister Luke's luscious locks to. He won't go to any hair stylist but mine because he was once given a bowl cut instead of a surfer cut and it was very painful for us both.
So, I have been stalking other women's hair. I look at their cuts and color. For a while, I was thinking- oh no, I don't even see any color jobs that I like. But, then I started spotting a few that looked good.
These ladies all probably think I am crazy- staring at their hair and all!
I almost asked one woman at the ski lodge the other day, but she was drinking and laughing with a bunch of other women and I would have felt weird interrupting.
Hi, forgive me for interrupting all your laughter and fun, but I really like your hair and wanted to find out who your stylist is. Sorry other ladies, your hair isn't looking so hot so that is why I didn't ask you!
I waited to see if she wandered from the pack, but she never did.
Thankfully, we went to one of our favorite restaurants that night where we got our favorite waitress. Her name is Rachel and she is in here early twenties and has great hair. The only problem is that it is not blonde so I could not tell about the color. When I asked her about her stylist, she gave me a number to her stylist and said that she used to be blonde and nobody could ever tell that she had her hair colored. Woooo Hoooo! Sounds like my girl. She also said that this woman cuts her little brother's hair like Mister Luke's and does a great job.
Then I saw the Grammy's last night and during the Michael Jackson performance, out came Carrie Underwood.
Hmmm, her hair is cute I thought! It is shorter and blonder than I am now.
Would it be totally crazy to go to a stylist for the first time with Carrie Underwood's picture and say...
can you do this?
What do you think? Should I have her do my hair once before I start asking her to make me look like a picture?
