Blake the Beautician?Sunday, January 18, 2009
This weekend I decided I really needed a hair cut. Since being here in the city I have seen really fantastic looking places to have this done unfortunately they also come with fantastical prices.
Prices for a regular old trim start at around $45 and can go upwards of a couple hundred. This does not include a style(which is okay with me because usually when a stylist does my hair I sit there wondering how the heck this person could actually think that what they are doing to me could be considered, in any way attractive. After 35 minutes of torture and fake reassurance that the rats nest they have created is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen, I leave mad.... then proceed to my car were I call Blake and wail about how this retarded hair dresser could have possible passed beauty school and that I'm never going to getting my hair cut again) but at least they wash your hair. In Paris you had to pay for a wash and extra if you wanted conditioner! So after much thought I decided I would cut my OWN hair. I mean I've had my hair cut like a million times and you can learn anything on the Internet right? So I set to work, I prepared all of my tools and searched YOUTUBE for tutorials on how to layer your own hair. It looked easy enough but I knew that I wouldn't be able to trim the back. So after much persuasion I enlisted Blake to help me. He was very nervous but, I'm happy to report he did a wonderful job and it didn't turn out half bad!
