Her name was Jaime

June 30, 2010

Journal, Lauren

I got a haircut a couple of weeks ago, and wasn’t real thrilled with it. Lloyd rolls his eyes when I complain about my hair because I don’t ”Build a Relationship” with ”Someone Who Knows What They’re Doing”. Nope. I’m a big fan of the walk-in method of hair shortening.

Today I had a goal to get to Lincoln and get a different haircut. Lloyd and Brad went along for moral support, but first we spent a little time doing some internet searching. Brad searched for ‘hairstyles for women of a certain age’. Grrrrr….. He came up with Martha Stewart’s ‘do.

I made a page of internet photos to show what I liked and didn’t care for. (Note to self: That was a good idea.) I only had the vague idea that I wanted it shorter than my shoulders, and I’d like to try the layer-y thing.

Jaime did a fine job. She was very thorough, and it took a long, long time. I was done talking a third of the way in, but kept being polite and social so she wouldn’t get mad and give me a mohawk for my impolitenesss.

It’s alright, but will take some getting used to. As always, though, it matters very little to me, because I almost never see my head.

No, no, no. Maybe.

    Great. Your title will have me singing this all day:
    Her name was Jaime, she was a stylist…

    Nice haircut, by the way.

      But it’s so cool. Somebody took scenes from Harry Potter and set them to Copacabana. How could you not watch that?

    You have GREAT hair Lauren! It’s full & bouncy & shiney! And I love your picture…peering in on the back of yourself.

    It is my understanding that stylists can get tired of small talk all day and might enjoy a little quiet.

    You might have made her day!
