This is a total chick post. Sorry fellas.
Today I got my hair done…read: my roots done. Grays are gone again (thank you, Lord), and split ends have been done away with. There’s something really refreshing about getting your hair styled. What is it? After I’m done, I sit there an run my fingers thru my hair (as if I’ve never done it ever before) and say, “Ahhh, it feels SO good!” It’s like it’s a treat or something. Well, I guess it is….I mean, you sit there for however long (2 hrs for me), talking to another girl, reading a magazine or perusing pinterest…not having to answer work questions or in my current case: change a diaper, fix a bottle or pump (sorry…). It’s just two chill hours and afterwards you feel and look absolutely beautiful.
Since my stylist reads my blog (thank you, Erin), I’ll tell you that it wasn’t her that cut my hair today. No, I didn’t cheat on her. My dear friend is also on maternity leave with her new baby girl (whoo hoo!). Our girls were born just a few days apart and so I knew that today’s appointment would be with another stylist at the salon.
Confession: I was really nervous. In the 8+ years I’ve gone to Erin, there’s only been one other occasion when someone else cut my hair…the last time Erin was on maternity leave!! I’m loyal only to Erin!
I’m happy to report that today’s appointment went really well. And while the new girl had different ways of doing things with my massive mane, she did a fantastic job. Erin, thanks for taking care of us while you’re away!
