Have I mentioned that Janet, my BFF since grade school, is also my hair stylist?
I haven't made any of my own hair decisions since she was in cosmetology school. Because she has known me since we were kids, she knows that I do not want to curl it,
pin it, braid it, or accessorize it. If it takes more than 10 minutes in
the morning I will go to work with bedhead.
And she knows that I am not
attached to my hair, so it's not a big deal to try things. It's awesome.
I told my oldest I was going to get my hair cut and colored, and she asked what I planned to do. I told her I wasn't sure. "That's ok," she said, "you can tell her what you want, but she'll do what she wants anyway." That was pretty much true:
Janet: I have this crazy new cut I want to try.
Me: Ok - you know I'm in.
Me: I don't know, I'm not feeling it.
Janet: It's cute.
Me: It reminds me of Flock of Seagulls.
Janet: No it's good. (trimming and singing...it's a nice day for a white wedding...)
Me: You sure about this?
Janet: Trust me.
She was right, of course, as usual.
