My quintannual trip to the hairdresser

December 28, 2009


1. Before: I cut my own hair. It’s curly enough that mistakes don’t really show, unless they’re truly egregious. I enjoy cutting my hair—it allows me to be spontaneous.

2. After: Nevertheless, every now and then I decide to turn myself over to a professional. I tried to tell him that I don’t use product and I refuse to spend more than 60 seconds with the hair dryer. Regardless, he did this to me. It was blow dried straight and secured in place with clouds of hair spray.

3. Bike helmet: All stylists present were horrified when they realized that I’d immediately be mashing the style under my bike helmet.

4. After bike helmet: It still looked okay, but not quite as good.

5. After bike helmet pony tail: One thing I like about straight hair is how the pony tail looks.

6. Back to normal: The next day we were back to 30 seconds of blow drying, which is to say virtually none in styling years.

7. Back to normal pony tail: And back to the regular frizzy pony tail.

p.s. This is the first blog entry written completely on iPhone 🙂
