Hair Do? Or Don’t?

Finally made an appointment to see my main gal, Carla at Ron King Salon.  Isn’t it the best feeling to make a hair appointment?  I know, I know…that sounds a little trite.  I mean, the “best” feeling should be working at a soup kitchen.  Or donating time/money to a cause, or rescuing a dog.  And,  those are “best” feelings.

But, getting your hair done feels like a real indulgence!  Don’t you think?   I might seem like a priss, and mostly I am – but I am not a big salon/pedicure/facial/message type person.  I mean, I love all that stuff, I just don’t really do any of it..ever..  (Don’t look at my toes..)  I mostly walk around and hope people won’t notice that I need a manicure, or need a keratin treatment on my ends, or I could really use a facial.  I was in my twenties before I had my first pedicure (GASP!).  I in fact, have never had my eyebrows done by a professional (double GASP!).

Did I just lose you?

Anyway, my husband goes to Carla.   As do several of my friends, my photographer from my wedding, and (I think) a couple of random peeps from work..  She does great work, especially on someone like me who struggles with decisions about their own hair.  Which, is probably why I don’t go to the salon etc soon.  It’s work to analyze yourself, and then – what if you don’t like it once it is done – it takes SOOOOO long to grow/change etc. Because of all of this, I had nearly the same haircut for 15 years and my ex-boyfriend used to cut my hair in the kitchen (yes, really).

I started to feel like it was time to grow up and do something!  So, I went to Carla and to a real salon – woweee!  We have gotten to that place where I can just walk in and go – “HELP! What do I do, oh balayage master?  Hair whisperer, where do I go from here?!”

She looks at my hair, we look at images of hair, and then she does it and I think it looks great.  Doing hair is a real art form.

Anyway, I get to go next week.  YAY!  So, I am thinking about what we can do!  Here is where I am with it…

Do I go lighter?

Darker?

Somewhere in between?

Do I let it grow?

Or cut if off shorter?

Bangs?

Or, let ’em grow out further and do a blunt cut kinda thang?

Oh, decisions, decisions, decisions!

How do you figure out what color/cut/style you want?  Do you scour the interwebs for images?  Leave it all up to the hair dresser?

Don’t have a hairdresser and live in Austin? Go see Carla.  She rocks.
