barber of seville

Before


After!

So yesterday I decided I needed to get my hair trimmed. I haven't had it cut in about 3 years so it really was about time. I called around to see if anyone could get me in and I finally found an 8:00 appointment at a "the best salon in Albuquerque," so appointed by many different local magazines. Normally this place charges $70 for a haircut but they take late Saturday appointments and only charge $27. I was really excited about this because I figured I'd get the most awesome haircut ever. Anyway so I went in and told my stylist that I wanted a little off the bottom, an inch maybe, and some crazy layers so I could wear it wavy. She said, "How about two inches?" and I said that would be fine. So 10 inches later I have the above new 'do. It's not bad looking but not at all what I had wanted or asked for. I'm a little sad, but it is just hair and it will grow back. And now I'm back to square one: finding a stylist I like. boo.

Holy hotness! It may not have been what you asked for, but it looks adorable! You are so beautiful.

Oh man, it stinks you can't just cut your own hair, huh? That is sad. But honestly, I think you look so gorgeous! Even though you don't like it, seriously...gorgeous.

ha, i'm sorry. if it didn't look good i wouldn't think this was amusing at all, because even though we all know "it's just hair and it will grow back," it's YOUR hair and it makes your whole body feel weird when it's wrong.

I like the way your style it, I wish my hair would do that, (I'll need to grow it out some.) Sorry you had such a frustrating experience. I know how hard it is to find a someone you trust, and knows what you mean when you say I want ONE inch cute off :) I think that's been something I dreaded every time we moved.
love ya, Suz
