We make our hair salon appointments weeks in advance, looking forward to them, to the wonderful transformation from our day-to-day frumpy self image to the make-over miracle bound to befall us if we just put our heads into the hands of someone who can simply work wonders with what we haven’t got.
Today was one of those days.
I didn’t even KNOW it was that bad because I had my glasses off while she was waxing my eyebrows……and then cutting my hair.
My bad for saying “take off what needs to come off to have it look good” after telling her that I “Just wanted a trim….”
My hair is half gone…and it is now in layers, and I hate layers…I don’t have enough thickness or enough hair to HAVE layers..they all just LAY THERE flat anyway and do nothing….maybe that is what LAY’ER is short for anyway…LAYS THERE. Flat. Lifeless.
I’m not one of those who likes to spend a lot of time or money on my hair. I don't do hair "PRODUCTS."
Let’s face it, I don’t HAVE the time to spend 45 minutes coiffing myself in the bathroom mirror every morning. I stopped coloring and doing highlights years ago because they were bad for my very thinning very fine hair, and I’d rather spend that dough on fabric and vintage machines, than on chemicals.
But, as I sit here, tucking short wispy layers behind my ears, with hair barely long enough to tie back in a pony tail anymore – ((and even if I did tie it back, half of these whispy layered things would not even reach the scrunchie I use to try to corral this mess at the back of my neck where it is away from my face))—I don’t know whether to laugh, or cry.
Yes, I know it will grow back…eventurally! But I am teaching in Bedford PA this weekend and on to Hershey PA for Quilt Odyssey next week! And then straight on to Alaska! It won’t grow fast enough.
Oh..and the eyebrows? There are BALD SPOTS in between where they start at the brdige of my nose, and end at the outside corners of my eyes….BALD. As in….NO HAIR THERE, JACK! Bald. As in…HOW could she take them ALL!?? *SIGH*
SO – come to Quilt-Cam tonight and commiserate with me. No, I’m not going to go back and ask her to fix it or demand my money back. You can’t fix this, it will fix itself over time ---and I’d rather not go back there.
((Funny things happen when you air your feelings on a blog….everyone has an opinion and it's amazing how full the comment section can get! I am usually bombarded with "Do it this way, no do it that way, well we always did it the other way"…..and I just want some “Oh, it doesn’t look THAT BAD” even though I know you are laughing behind your monitors!))
Quilt Cam – tonight. 9pm Eastern.
Maybe some sewing will help me forget about this Double-Disaster!
See you then…..but good thing I can’t see you laughing!
