New 'Do

I got my haircut yesterday, for the first time in many moons -- it made me think of my sister Steph, whose French hairdresser told her, "You really needed zee haircut."

I went to a new stylist, and she was great. She gave me some style which I was severely lacking. But she did say my bangs were "dating" me. She said, "Promise me you'll do them straight - no more bubble bangs!"

Sheesh! Actually, she was really nice, and gave me lots of tips for fixing my hair, although it remains to be seen if I can actually reproduce the style at home.

Mostly, I did not want to become like another mom vet at my work, who got a really great haircut but then did not cut a hair again for at least 2 years! It grew from her collar down to waistline, and we insisted it needed a trim, but she said she decided that out of protest she wouldn't cut it again until Bush was out of office! Fortunately, she reneged on that pledge a few months ago.

hey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I totally agree, you cannot publish that post without a coordinating picture.

And I just saw the snooty french hairdresser again this past week. He took my hair out of the ponytail and picked up a clump in disgust -- I had been trimming the jasmine and that sticky milk had dripped on my hair forming a nice dreadlock. He gave a suitable raised eyebrow and snarled lip. Then when I left he said, "Okay, I see you in three months." I replied, "Yeah, and that's if you're lucky!"

OK, I will post a hair photo soon, but I have not had an opportunity to take a self-portrait when my hair is looking good, so you'll have to wait.
