Scenes from a haircut

The most hilarious things come from the oddest circumstances. I just recently had my hair pretty radically cut – at least 11 inches – and colored with honey blond highlights and chestnut brown base color. I am very happy with the new look (not to mention that I got to donate my hair to Locks of Love) and I thought that it might be funny to document the series of strange and unexpected reactions to my altered appearance.

There was a woman in the chair next to me while I was having my hair cut. She saw how long my hair was while the stylist was brushing it out, etc. She turned away for a second – naturally the second that it took my stylist to gather the hair in a pony tail and cut it all off – and when she turned back to me gasped, “Your hair is gone” with a very shocked look on her face.

At work, I was entering an elevator while someone with whom I worked was exiting. I said a kind “Hello” and she looked at me with a blank look on her face, clearly not recognizing me. After about a second – while the elevator doors were closing – she said, “Oh my God – I didn’t recognize you!” Clearly.

Numerous people simply reacted by saying, “You got a haircut.” As if I hadn’t noticed.

The best reaction had to be Troy’s, our Crate and Barrel salesman. I walked in this weekend after not having seen him in over a month. His first words were “Your hair looks fab-u-lous.” He’s a Dupont Circle kind of guy – so this was the ultimate compliment.

My husband’s primary reaction has been “Stop trying to look so cute.”

What і ԁo not understoοd is in truth how you are not reаlly much more nеatly-favored than you
might be гight now. You're very intelligent. You already know thus significantly in the case of this matter, made me in my view believe it from a lot of varied angles. Its like women and men are not interested until it is something to do with Woman gaga! Your individual stuffs outstanding. At all times deal with it up!
