My New Do

We found many auction items that we had bought in the last Jazz Band get-together. One of them was a color and cut from Salon 512. I haven't had my hair cut in almost a year and thought ... there, that is something I could really use. Called. I hate to make appointments. I hate to be committed to something I must show up for at a appointed time (I am always late). I hate to spend an hour in a chair to get my hair cut. I hate the 40 minutes+ for a color. But it was soooo totally worth it tonight. Beth gave me the best cut, the best color I have ever had!

I even made an appointment in 5 weeks. Mom cried. My neighbor (who was here watching the debates) gasped. My son said "cool". This post is also for Kathy ;). My husband said "maybe you should spring for cut and color more often".

So, thank you, Beth! (If you want her email ... I have it!) You spent 3 hours of free time making me feel great, my hair looks fabulous. And I really appreciate it. I also bought many products to keep this look ;). Okay, I don't look that good in the middle photo ... but it is my "normal" look.

Totally worth the time. I don't hate the sitting in the chair, it's pulling out the plastic afterward. STILL: Give yourself a real treat, 30 minutes max, and spring for a pedicure. Wonder of wonders is when they pull out that razor thing and get rid of that yucky heel skin. Makes me feel like I could dance ... as if I could dance.
