Hack, chop!

Wheee! I have cool hair again! (Look, I haven't posted in a week, so I'll post 3 times today if I wanna.)

I'm feelin' good, because I would not be pushed around by the hairdresser. Here's an artist's rendition of how the conversation went:

Vapid wench: Oh, I'll give you a cute wedge! It's very trendy, and, you know, larger women need something to frame their faces…
Me: Nope. Short and spiky.
Vapid wench: OK, I'll go a little shorter, but men really prefer long hair on women.
Me: Do I look like I care what men prefer? Chop it.
Vapid wench: OK, how's this?
Me: Shorter!
Vapid wench: But…but… don't you want to look like the vapid wenches on the reality shows?
Me: Ahhhhhh! I *keel* you! Die! Die!

OK. I totally made that whole thing up. But I really did stand up for myself, and make her cut it much shorter when she stepped back and looked pleased with the freakin' trendy-ass wedge she'd given me. Gah!

So I'm short and spiky now. Yay!

*STABS Hairdressers who do not listen to what you want.*

Thank God she finally relented. Go Spikey!

Whoo-hoo for getting what you want! And you inspired me to get my hair cut at lunch, so now I am pretty too! (But not spiky.) :)

I bet you look great. Hey, you, Lori and I ought to be the sp00ky lit girls! We could have a little uniform and everything.

(humor me. it's late :)

I need to get a hair cut. this morning I almost thought I might need to use a hair brush (keep hair so short I don't own a brush. would have had to borrow one from boyfriend)
But, it takes FOUR HOURS to make my black hair platinum (and luckily I love the way I look with roots) so I always put it off for as long as possible...

It's worth the 4 hours. It looks so cool when you're platinum, and I agree that the roots growing in adds to the effect.

Yay! Good for you.

I get to see you soooo soon! Yay!

Re: as you have often said
Yup. I really need to talk to my "Aunt" Kathy to find out where she gets hers done. Her hair is always perfect. It's this soft butch look, that I think would look good on me, too.

Cause you are the cutest dyke ever! Erm, you know what I mean. :)
May. 6th, 2005 04:04 am (UTC)
Hee :) I do indeed. *smooch*

Oh, I despise those type of hairdressers. It's probably why I tend to chop at my own hair and am terribly unfashionable and simple.
May. 6th, 2005 04:14 am (UTC)
See, "unfashionable and simple" is pretty much what I'm going for. I like simplicity over "fashion," which is fickle, and subject to the whims of designers, and Hollywood jerks, and gods-know-who.

Ooh! You've probably already seen this, but just in case, I want to rec this to you: http://www.livejournal.com/users/paian/3894.html. There's a lot going on in this fic, but the best part by far is the Sam/Daniel. It's... well, it's kind of weird and awkward, which is how it has to be under the circumstances, but it's also really dreamy! I love me some good S/D, and I'm so happy that I'm not the only one!

This is why I cut my own hair ;)

Of course, it's easy for me -- curls are very forgiving, so it's impossible to tell if I've done it evenly anyway . . . if I had a shorter or more structured haircut, I'd need a professional. Glad you were able to get the cut you wanted after all!!

So, are you going to show us pictures? *grin*

a few years back, i decided to shave my head after having braids for several years. being a girl, i figured i'd go to a hairdresser to get my hair cut, like i did for everything else. the idiot woman who ended up cutting my hair took TWO HOURS to do so, because she refused to believe i wanted it short. she took it off an inch at a time, in spite of my saying every time she gave me a mirror, "if i can comb it, it's too long." eventually, i got the close-cut i wanted, and after that i just went to a barber shop. i wish i had pictures, i looked really hot with a close-cut.

i looked really hot with a close-cut.

No doubt! Many women do.

You know, I don't think I've ever seen you without pretty long braids.

I'm with ashbet, I leave it long and curly and cut it as little as possible. Much angst ensued when two inches of split ends came off in January and I started getting more serious about leave-in conditioners. Now I have to be even more serious because of the jet black and the bleached-out streaks covered with (whee!) vermilion red.

But I am all for Short And Spiky over trendy-ass wedge!
May. 6th, 2005 04:23 am (UTC)
Ooh, vermilion! Right in the middle of the color range!

I've always envied your gorgeously curly locks.
