And today it popped up get a haircut. And although it is necessary to get one, I hate going to get it done. The guy always asks me how I want it done. I don't know how to describe a haircut. I usually end up having to say make it look like that (and I am pointing to one of the many posed models on the posters). If I can't find a model that looks like I want it done, then I have to mention a familiar actor.
Last time I was in there, the guy sitting next to me had very specific directions on how he wanted his hair cut. This much off here, that much off there, layer it here and take a little off the top. Yes, I was listening, just in case--because if his came out looking the way I would want mine to look, then I could just say the same stuff he was saying the next time I was there. His hair did come out looking good, but I didn't write down all his directions in correct order. Also I wasn't watching where his fingers were pointing as he gave the directions. So I'm sure if I gave the directions as I remembered them, I would wind up looking like I lost a fight with scissors.
This is what I'm doing later on today...I'm getting my hair cut.
