ah…yesterday was a “pamper me” day. i got my hair cut and highlighted. There’s almost nothing i enjoy more than sitting in that chair and doing nothing.
But, I really don’t like to chat while i’m having my hair done (or my nails done, or massages….in fact, the only place i enjoy the mindless chit-chat is while i’m getting waxed…i think it takes away from the pain somehow). I’m not sure what the protocol is. Am i being rude by NOT talking up a storm? Is it normal to sit in silence while you are getting all foiled up? I don’t want to be rude, but there are so few moments of my day that are actually quiet and peaceful, and I really take pleasure in them.
There’s something else i take pleasure in….It always feels really good when hair professionals tell you, “Wow, your hair is super clean” and “You have amazing hair…i really don’t want to cut it short” and “I can see that you take really good care of your hair” – and yesterday was one of those days. I got all three!
so, despite my hubby’s plea to cut my hair short ala Rory Gilmore, I didn’t cut much off in the end, but i did get dramatically blond highlights, which i absolutely adore. I’m getting mixed reviews from my friends. Actually, only one person, URI, said that he didn’t like it, but the truth is, none of my girl friends are going to tell me the absolute truth anyway – even if they hate it, they will still say that it looks good. That’s just how girls are.
