Got my hair did

BY ME!! I've cut, colored and played with everyone else's hair. And screwed my own up quite a bit with cheap hair color but tonight I did it! And it looks beautiful. I pulled it through the cap, mixed the junk myself and then deep conditioned after I took the color off. And learned that it hurts 1/10 less when you do it yourself than when you let your mom, err, someone else do it.

Made me think of a funny story. I was highlighting Whit's hair a few years ago and David, not Whitney, David was really concerned with whether I knew what I was doing or not. I tend to make a lot of noises when I'm taking the foils out (hmm, ummm, wow, uhhh...) and that doesn't really lend itself to instilling confidence in my "clients." But I finished the color and David, as well as Whit were quite pleased. Then she decided she wanted long bangs. There may have been a glass of wine involved but I'm pretty sure she was just skittish....

I've never been trained on how to do anything it's just kind of in my blood. When I color my hands turn all sorts of colors and when I cut my fingers have all sorts of cuts. Well Whitney was sitting on a stool and I was trimming away at her long bangs and the scissors may have slipped for a second out of my control and gone right up her nose! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Never seen a girl jump so HIGH, BACKWARDS before in my life.

But she looked beautiful as always and the only scars are on my knuckles.

Moral of the story, I like to do hair, my best friend is fast on her feet and drinking wine while doing hair makes it look better!!


  1. Since I "hurt" you when I do your hair......I will tell you what Nana told me many years ago when I wanted her to roll my hair every night....while on a 2 week vacation at the Beach (had to look good for the boys) You can now do it for yourself :)

  2. Yea, but it's more fun when you do it and I yell!
