Wacky Wednesday

Sometimes I think I work in a zoo rather than a school. Has any other teachers felt that way? Geez... Kids can be crazy.

Tonight I went and got my hair cut. It has been about 5 months since the last one. Prior to this cut, I have had my hair cut by the same person for the past 3 or 4 years. I hate trying to find someone new. Well, let's just say that this girl (girl being the operative word), looked about the age of a 16 year old (not that I judge someones knowledge or experience on I may look at times younger than I really am), but damn... she was young. She couldn't find her scissors, and then when I asked her to thin out my hair (as it is extremely thick) she reached for her regular scissor and not the other scissors used for this process, and almost started to cut... I think she heard me gasp and realized what she had almost done. Then she couldn't find the hair gel, and proceded to have difficulties putting the diffuser on the blow dryer. Ahh! By the time she was done diffusing my hair, I looked like a lion and couldn't tell if I liked the cut. The second I left the salon I threw it up in a pony tail, thankful I am still able to do so, and went on my merry way to the grocery store.

I will let you know tomorrow if I like the cut. After I am able to wash all this sh*t out of my hair and style it myself. Then.. . and only then will I decide whether I will got back to her!

Yikes. I hope it ends up turning out ok tomorrow. I hate trying to find a new person, too. It can be a scary experience!

I have crazy thick hair. I've gone to one guy off and on for years who is great, only problem it costs an arm and a leg. I keep thinking there's got to be someone out there that can do a good job for less, but everytime it ends up being a nightmare. Now.... I just pay the piper! Hope it works out and you love it!

Yea, I used to travel miles and miles to get to the same barber. Now, its number 2 all over. I can get ANYBODY to do that :-)

L*I*S*A said... sucks using someone new for hair stuff. I love my girl, and I always tease her that I'll follow her if she ever decides to move away.

Eh! I would probably have a panic attack then and there. HOpe it's not too bad.

Oh, I know how that goes. It cna be so hard to judge a cut right after you step out of the salon, and I hate all that junk in my hair too. Hope it turns out well!

Oh man, that is scary. I have naturally really fine hair, and I have only found 2 people (maybe 3) EVER that know how to cut fine hair. Updos with fine hair are even harder.

A few months ago I went to Fantastic Sams (chains= no good, I should know that by now). But I just needed a nice trim. I told the woman (who was well into her 40s at least) what I wanted. She assured me over and over that she would not cut it short, and would not add any layers. (Rule #1 with fine hair: NO layers -contrary to popular belief).

The minute I left the salon I realized I was in for a doozy. I had layers SO short they wouldn't even stay back in a ponytail. And to top it all off, my hair was uneven. I cried like a baby. I mean it looked AWFUL! After my crying attack, I put on my big girl shoes, marched back up there, and DEMANDED a refund.

Not to say that'll happen to you at all! But it can't be any worse than me. I'm sure it'll turn out fine though. Show us pics!
