I LOVE to get my hair cut.  I don’t do it often enough, but when I find a good place I’m in love!  I have had four hair cuts in the past year and they have all been so different.  You see I’ve never had a “person” that does my hair.  I jump around to different salons and different people all the time.  The reason for this is mainly that I just don’t keep up with my hair like I should.  I don’t get hair cuts often enough and for sure can’t keep up with color or highlights.

Here is how my last four hair cuts have gone down …

#1 Nan.  Loved her.  Very cool and trendy.  Used her a few times but then she moved.  🙁

#2 Stopped in at a random place and asked for anyone.  This can sometimes be fabulous but other times not so fabulous.  A man comes out to greet me and he is wearing wranglers and cowboy boots.  He then takes me to the wash and it was the worst wash I’ve ever had.  That was not a good sign b/c that is my favorite part.  Then we proceed to his station and he has pictures of horses all over the walls and tells me that he is also a rancher.  His license was for a barber and not a cosmetologist.  I should have RAN!   The worst hair cut ever.  Awful!

#3 cut by a lady at church in her home salon.  She did great, but I am very much an experience person.  We are that way with out to eat too.  If we are going to go out to eat the experience means as much to us as the food.  🙂  So, she did great, but I really  need a “salon” feel.  I know I’m spoiled.

#4 Today.  Found a coupon in my local clipper magazine and gave it a shot.  The girl was young and cute and had a blond stripe in her hair.  I had high hopes from the beginning.  First step was the wash and it was great.  I got a mini massage and loved every minute of it.  The water was hot and she took her time massaging my head.  Gold stars for her!  Then she spent a great amount of time cutting it.  I could tell she was thinking about it and wanting it to be the best.  Then the blow dry was wonderful and I almost fell asleep.
Many more gold stars for her!  Then the favorite part.  When she was done blow drying she asked if I was in a hurry.  I told her no and she said she wanted to curl it for me.  What?  She is asking to fix my hair some more, okay twist my arm!  I love for anyone to touch, comb, wash or cut my hair.  Love it!  She made me look fabulous and I loved it.  Of course Aaron loved the curled look and I was quick to make sure he understood this would not be an every day thing!

I loved her bangs and so I decided to try them for myself.  I am growing my hair out for locks of Love and hope to be able to do that by the end of summer!

Hopefully I can recreate her look for Saturday night when I go out on the town with my love in Atlanta!

It even looks cute pulled back in a pony tail!  That is my regular look during the week!  I hope these bangs stay cute and don’t drive me nuts!
