Simple luxuries part two

I was able to get my hair cut at 11 after all. My meeting was rescheduled. I went to a new place and my hair came out wonderfully, however, I won't be going back. Each "station" had its own sink, which I thought was cool. Most of the places I have been previously have a row of sinks to which the client is brought to have their hair cleansed. As I was having my hair cut I was staring right at the sink. I quickly noticed there was hair piled up on the joint of the pipes under the sink, front and back. Yes, other people's hair, many other people's hair. Oh and did I mention the paper towel that was used around my neck? Um, yeah. Never again. Cleanliness when operating a business, sort of priority. Although I am not the neatest person, I am clean. There is a gigantic difference between messy and dirty. This place? Just plain dirty and down right skanky.

I would like to share an observation I made months ago. Take a look around next time you are out and about. Look specifically at mothers and their toddler aged daughters. Look specifically at their hair cuts. I think you will find it quite interesting. Oldest and I are no exception to this rule. I have had a bob for years and years, it is a classic. I recently had Oldest’s hair cut, and realized today after my hair cut, that we look like twins, I mean ridiculous.

This is me and my new hair cut! And that is Oldest. We look nothing alike! (Yes, I took my own picture in the bathroom mirror. I hope the neighbors were watching because if I had been seeing this? I would have peed my pants!!)

Oh boy, we did the same thing! My daughter took the scissors to her own hair in preschool, and from that time on she wanted her hair short. Throughtout her elementary years, we, too, looked like twins.

When she was in sixth grade I asked her (ok, made her) start growing it out. I had a feeling when she was in junior and senior high school she might want it longer. She complained about it during the growing-out stage but now it's below her shoulders and she does enjoy having it longer.

I cut my daughter's hair to match my own on purpose once when I was pregnant. I've never done that since. (Cut her hair myself, or had matching styles.) I can only blame pregnancy.

Although I think it's kinda cute sometimes.

You DO look like twins!
None of my kidlets look like me, not a one. Love your haircut!
