My Inner Fabulous

Yesterday on my lunch hour I decided to get all gussied up so I went and got my hair done. When I think of getting my hair done I think of little old ladies with blue hair sitting under a row of hair dryers reading the Weekly World News. I did not go to this sort of place. I went to one of these places you only find in Manhattan the music was loud people were dancing all the stylists had names like Diva and Sparkle. It was almost like being in a night club except everyone was overly nice and you can always find a seat.

My stylist Diva was a life coach/stylist. She talked to me about making me fabulous and bringing out my inner beauty and before I knew it I was having chemicals poured on my head and was undergoing the most expensive hair quaffing I had ever encountered. Just one thing I told Diva please don't make it too far away from my regular color I don't have the time to deal with roots. And I only have an hour I'm on my lunch. She agreed (of course darling) and off I went to find my inner beauty my inner fabulous!

So I sat and sat until I could no longer feel my scalp. Wave and Shimmer (can you tell they were stylists too) came and complimented my red glowing tingling scalp delighting over the wonderful color I had in store. The clock ticked away and as the chemicals burned a molten pathway to my brain I realized I only had 10 min left of my lunch hour. I grabbed Star Bright and asked her to find Diva. I needed to go. I was late. You can't rush color they said. Finally after and hour and a half I was washed and cut and I looked and there was the lushest, deepest, RED hair I had ever seen. But but I stammered...I'm not a red head my roots will show in about 20 min. Yes it sure will! She replied isn't it great!

I walked back into work 45min late with a glowing red scalp glowing red hair and still looking for the fabulous new me. Maybe those little old ladies have the right idea after all.

What a marvelous description. I go to one of the old lady salons that has a hip lady section, I now have two tone hair. Your blog is wonderful. I especially love the addicted to blogging post. I found you from your comments on Becky's blog. You are a hoot. You made my day! :)

You know how, as the bridesmaid, no-one is supposed to outshine the bride? We went to the hairdresser. My bridesmaidy hair went kar-ching bounce,shiny bounce. Her bridey hair went flack,bleck,blergh. She could have shot me. I could have shot me.What to do. Shave my head? Wet my hair? Thank god for bridal veils and by the end of the night everyone was so dishevelled and drunk that even Uncle Charlie's comb-over looked good.

Funny you should bring this up. I just got the worst haircut I've every had (about a month ago, actually), and I wrote about it, but I haven't posted it yet. It's sitting in my drafts folder, but this remind me I should post it soon. Don't you just love when they think they know your hair better than you do?

I do bet you look fabulous, though! Are you going to go back and tell them to redo it?

Madge said...

i'm back! i gave you an award today. please go pick it up (if you wish) it will go nice with your new hair....

Kmommy said...

I am faily positive that it looks great! Sucks that it took so dang long though! Everything always takes so much longer than expected...

Amber said...

Thanks for visiting my blog...seems so hum drum compared to yours! I'm cracking up!

I've given up on hair stylists...I just go for the cheap and quick these day!

Stacey Huston said...

LOL.all I have to say is, did your babies cry when they saw you.. If not then they did good. glad to hear that Diva was a "she" .

MamaGeek said...

You know they DO have the right idea! I'm sure you're still HOTT (yeah, 2 t's).

oh this post so needs some pictures!

i'm sure sparkle and diva didnt lead you down the wrong path : )

Annie said...

lol...hairstylists can make you crazy, can't they?

I'm sure it looks great - but seriously, if you're not happy with it? Go back and make them do it over. I've done that the past couple of times I've gotten color - I'm not sure why "Match my natural color" is so hard sometimes...

Tricia said...

Dancing to their own tune and not hearing a word the client says, how do they do it and stay in business. I'm quite sure your fabulous new you is quite hot, despite the frustration.

Still juggling parents. Tired and in need of a fresh head myself.

Vered said...

Will you post a picture?

PLEASE???

:-)

I am so curious now.

I don't trust hairstylists.

Heather said...

Why oh why can they not just do what you ask them to do? YOU have to wear your hair every single day!
It's not fair!

Some people say, "Oh it's only hair, it'll grow back, or grow out, or whatever, but I don't buy that! I remember when this hairstylist gave me a version of "The Rachel," when all I asked for was a trim. My thick unruly hair looked ridiculous in that style. I looked like Rosanna-Rosanna Danna from SNL. It was very traumatic.
