My hair was totally driving me nuts. Trying to grow it out and just not having it go too well. So I thought about hair cuts I have had an went photo album shopping.

pams wedding 001I found one from oh about 36 years ago, I scanned the photos this is the one I want…oh how exciting.. so I get ready and go.

I have 2 different hairstylists there and they are both totally awesome. One is the manager of the store, the other I think is her assistant.

There are  all these huge posters in the salon, you know the ones , of different models hair cuts- so I use them to  give an idea what I want… well this style I wanted was part of 3 different models hair styles.

As I am sitting there, there is one hairstylist there,…someone I have never seen….. I figured the regulars were on break…so I wait patiently……..

I hear them coming back in and was waiting for one of my 2…. well I was incorrect. Hmm.. now a challenge. I kinda like having my hair done with the same stylist…having a new stylist brings me back in history….

( HA HA   .. let me take you back to my memory…. there was one time I went to a place, and I did not know any of the stylist… this lady came to get me, and dang—she had a hair cut like Fryer Tuck, I remember as she approached me thinking… “Oh please be leaving for the day… “ as I always worry that if the hair stylist’s hair looks freaky… there is a good chance mine will too… but N OOO she calls my name… gulp… I get up and follow her….

and well… I explained to the Fryer Tuck look alike that I wanted a layered hair cut, bangs to my eye brows, , long layered in the back, ……………..the Farah Fawcett shag hair style look….

I wanted to have my hair look like this…

So I closed my eyes as she cut and trimmed… when she got done………………………….

I came out looking like Fryer Tuck !

Actually this photo above  of the good ol’ Fryer – well for the haircut she gave me… these bangs would have been grown out already for 2 months.

I remember going out to my car after and pulling on the tips of hair- that once were long bangs- hoping I could stretch it…..

So as I am drifting back to today… now… I am assessing the 2 other stylists… grrr… one guy.. one gal…. so I am doing a deal with my soul…. thinking I will stay … and please let it be the girl…

WRONG again…. I got the guy.. He asked me what I wanted done… so I point to the 3 models and say a little bit of that, and that and that… and than I pull out my scanned photos… He made a sigh of sorts, and said something like “I think I understand what you want.. “ I wanted to leave right than..but I held tight…

And surprisingly—he did a darn good job… Exactly what I wanted….

So I am feeling kinda ashamed I prejudged his ability— he actually is now my favorite stylist….

Amazing how preconceived notions can be so wrong…

I am not looking like the good Fryer…. I am looking like I wanted to…
