Shaken Not Stirred

Friday, February 27, 2009


I said I would post about my schedule or anything that popped up with my Treo appointments.

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.


  • I'm gonna help you out Angel. I always had the same dilemmas as to what to tell the various people who cut my hair when I go in there, and I always felt like a complete tool. But then one day I realized that I happen to have a picture of myself where I think my hair looks great. So what I've done is printed out that picture, and I take it in with me when I get my haircut and just tell them, "make it look like that".

    I've gotten positive feedback from the stylists, and I've gotten decent haircuts from it every time I've done it so far. So if you're not too embarrassed to haul a picture of yourself into the salon or wherever, give it a shot!

  • I always hate it when they turn my chair and I can't watch them cut my hair.

  • High and tight for me. It is pretty easy but I was also in the military so I just got use to getting my hair cut that way. Hope your cut went well and you did not lose the fight to the scissors.
