Finding “The One”

We have lived in Missouri for over 3 years now and I have felt like I’ve been trying to find a hair stylist nearly the whole time.

After the first six months of being here, I went to the same lady for almost a year probably.  I really liked her personally, but eventually I had to stop going.  My hair color was always too light and my cuts were often not as I told her I wanted or worse–sometimes my hair was uneven.  But it’s hard to break up with a hair stylist you like.  I felt guilty for a while, but I knew it was time to move on.

Ever since then I have definitely been salon hopping.  I might have gone back to the same stylist twice, but after that I felt like there just wasn’t the chemistry I was hoping for or I was not extremely satisfied with the cut.

I hope I’m not the only one who feels like there should be something else to getting your hair cut than just getting a great cut. (Which is of course the most important, but often I did not get.)  I look for someone I would hang out with.  Not that I want them to be my friend or looking to find a friend through my hairstylist, but it’s so much better when you actually enjoy your time “in the chair” and have a happy, lively conversation.

All this to say, I think I might have found “the one”.  I guess it really may be too soon to tell.  I guess I should take it slowly. lol  But she did give me an awesome pedicure a few months ago and I knew I liked her personality.  I made the call for an appointment to get my hair trimmed yesterday and she had an opening, which is just the way I like it.  I usually get the “overwhelming need” to get my haircut and want it as soon as possible, like the next day or so.  Yesterday, it was the feeling that my ends were crunchy and knew I couldn’t stand it any longer.  (She liked that description and chuckled.  I knew we were golden after that.)

And if I knew beforehand I was going to blog about this I would have taken a photo of my hair after I got it cut.  I did snap a photo before I left for bible study today.

I think it looks really great (even for being slept on) and I can just feel it’s a terrific cut.

    I totally feel for you! Before chemo got rid of the need for a good hairstylist, my SIL cut and colored my hair. And she was FABULOUS!! But then she became my ex-SIL. So very, very awkward. I am hoping when my hair starts to grow back in that things will be past the awkward stage and I can just go back to her!
