Why is it that when you go to the hairdresser, you rarely walk out with your hair the way you wanted it?
If you take in a picture of a style or colour they look at it and say 'yes, yes' then they confer with another hairdresser who also says 'yes, yes'. But at the end it never looks like the picture. But they act like it does. I wonder if behind the pleased looking face they're really thinking 'shit, that doesn't look like the photo'.
Last time I went, I took a picture of a girl with dark hair – like mine – but with nice red/gold highlights. 'Oh yes, that'll be nice'. But as she was putting the bleach foils in I said 'well won't that just, you know, bleach it'. 'Oh, we'll take it off before it's been on too long'.
Well of course I ended up with dark hair with quite light bleached foils in it. Kimba told me I looked like a crazy racoon. Which wasn't really the look I was going for.
I've fought with a lot of hairdressers over the years but I've had it. I'm just going to do it at home. Buy a box from Big W and do it myself. Well maybe 2 boxes – I have a lot of hair.
Not only will I save myself money but save myself from the whole hairdresser trip experience. I get so bored in there I almost go insane and I have to listen to the most ridiculous talk I'm ever likely to hear. Do you know that if a baby isn't breathing, the best thing to do is stick it's head out a car window. Apparently that "gets the wind into it". I'm not kidding. Thats what one woman told everyone. I almost laughed.
I'll also save myself from the washing/massage part. There is one girl there with titanium fingers. I thought she might actually break through my skull and make contact with my brain. I must admit I did say the pressure was ok. But after a few minutes it was awful and I got the giggles. Then before I could say 'DON"T PUT YOUR FINGERS IN MY EARS' she had wrapped ther fingers in the towel and twisted them enthusiastically around my earholes. I always feel like a five year old. And it makes me laugh as well. Maybe they think I'm mentally retarded. Because I always laugh when I leave as well because the owner has my name. So when I leave I yell out Bye Cat and she yelss back, Bye Cat. And I feel like we're The Two Ronnies and I always feel like saying 'so it's goodnight from me…… and it's goodnight from him'
So I think as long as I'm dark it's home done for me from now on. So, anyone know any good brands??
