How to get a great hair cut

Hey Hey Hey! It’s Friday!!! Let’s get the party started! Okay,not really, I have to get through work first, and then go grocery shopping. Then home to put everything away and laundry. Then we can party! Hey, hey!
What are your plans this weekend? I am finally, FINALLY going to get my hair done. It’s been a year since I went. I have highlights but they now start at my ears… It’s really been entirely to long. This is an actual picture my daughter drew of me last weekend. I said “Honey, my hair isn’t that short!” She said “I am not done yet!” And proceeded to draw my highlights on the bottom… How sweet.
Do you have a favorite salon that you go to always? It took me forever to finally decide that it wasn’t worth salon hopping. I went to this place on a whim 8 years ago and it was the first time I ever fell in love with my hair. It was exactly what I wanted. I could just wash my hair and leave the house and it would look great or I could style it and look phenomenal.  But it was almost $300.00 for the cut, highlights and everything.
I felt amazing but that price seemed a little steep for me and my young family. I felt bad about spending that much money. That was 2 weeks of groceries and gas back then… Yes, I am old enough to say that now.
I spent years salon hopping trying to get that cut and color that I fell in love with and I could never get it. One place did chunky highlights when I asked for thin, she said they looked better. One place refused to give me a straight cut. My hair was to thin she said so she went ahead an layered it. The next place gave me thick highlights, I have to admit they were better than the chunky ones. The only place that actually gave me the cut I wanted was the training salon. That girl did exactly what I asked her to do but I was to nervous to ask for color. No place gave me the cut and color that I fell in love with.

Last year I was done with Salon hopping and I booked my appointment back at the $300.00 place. And I paid $300.00. and I loved it again.  I will never go anywhere ever again. Also, I plan on going more than once a year so it shouldn’t be $300.00 every time. Last year just totally got away from me and before I even had a chance to look up, it was December. And now all of a sudden it’s March…Wait, really? Almost April!! Can time slow down a little bit? My hair needs taming.
**Not me or my hair but something like what I get when I go. ***

So my advice for how to get a great haircut… Find someone you love and stay with them forever.
I go Saturday. I am so excited I could pop. What’s you’re experience with hair? Do you salon hop? Are you strictly with one person for everything? Do you have a colorist and a stylist?
Sunday I have book club with my homies. So overall it should be a great feel good weekend. Which is exactly what I need right now.
Happy Weekend loves! I hope you all have a good one.

  2. I know how you feel, I have experienced such inconvenience with salons too when I ask for something specific and then they go ahead and do something entirely different, but then they try to convince me that this was what I asked for. 😀

    I have been a regular at one salon where I felt comfortable with for a long time, but then I moved places and so far can’t find any. I have been trying to learn to do my hair myself though. So, far, I can only cut it, but yet to learn how to dye it.
