Paging Edward Scissorhands
Today, I am wishing that I could travel back in time and cancel that appointment. Or, travel back in time and bitchslap that woman in the face, because; my hair is ruined. Like, seriously.
I suppose I should have been concerned when the woman took less than two seconds to study the picture of the style that I wanted before informing me that it was a long shag with beveled sides, blah, blah, blah, I don’t need to see the picture, I am a professional, blah, blah, blah.
When she then proceeded to bash every other salon in our “Podunk” town (seriously, she called it Podunk which, coming from a woman who purportedly grew up in Scottsdale, studied with Frederic Fekkai, graduated from the Redken School of Color and worked for a fashion house in Europe as its’ primary hair stylist, should have sounded more factual and less ear-stabbingly obnoxious yet, totally did not), and to diss the capabilities of several stylists who I have heard are quite good; I should have run but, by that time, she was already cutting and razoring and texturizing and generally terrorizing my hair and it was kind of too late to run.
Although, in hindsight, running at that point would at least have left me with enough hair to pull up into a ponytail. On one side, anyway and, as usual, I digress.
In the meantime, I am pulling what little hair I have back in a clip and plotting ways to make that scissor-happy harpy at the salon rue the day that she scalped me. I may never follow through on those plans but, it gives me something to do other than staring into a mirror wanting to cry.
I am so much fun to be around.
