Haircut for a good cause


Last week, I received email from a friend of meine Schwester.  She has this friend that is trying to get a job at an upscale salon and has to demonstrate her work by having people come in and do certain haircuts/dye jobs.  To finish, she needed to do highlights for a natural blonde (which I’m not), do a touch-up job on some roots (which I needed), and cut a bob (which I haven’t had since about ninth grade).  Well, being the person I am.  I offered to have the touch-up and the bob done.

We met in the parking lot of a Denny’s so that she could “inspect” my hair and make sure that I needed done what she had to do.  It was all good.  I asked how she knew our friend and she told a story about being in a club one night and our friend had come up to her and asked if she could dance with her because she is married and doesn’t want the guys hitting on her.  Like that is going to stop the guys….

This morning, I went in to the shop to have it done.  Really nice place.  ds|newman in Palo Alto.  I can see why she wants to work there.  I hope she gets the job.  She is a really nice girl, just wanting something better for herself.  And she did an excellent job as far as I’m concerned.  Dante did a very thorough inspection of the cut, and his wife was just as meticulous with the dye job.  I’m still getting used to “the bob”.  We will see what I can do with it.  So far, only one person has cringed, and he was just upset that I’d cut my hair at all.

My before and after pictures are pretty lame, but you get the idea.  I’ll try to get better pictures later.

    Do the flippy thing! Do the flippy thing!For some reason it reminds me of Barbara Streisand. But if you flip the ends, it will look more like a mod ’60s fashion, which is much better.
