... and cancel christmas!
Remember kids - never trust hairdressers.

I was hoping that after a hard day of work I could relax and write LJ about "Not in my backyard" residents of the Waterside near Southampton; or intelligent comments on the pro-life/abortion debate after catching a bit of the Channel 4 documentary last night.

But no, my life, which was going so well, has just become hugely traumatic.

The time before last I visited the parental units I had my hair TRIMMED. This involved having varying amounts of straggly hair removed from my back, and left me with "long-ish hair" but neater.

Today I tried the same. Only the hairdresser has clearly had too much of their stimulant of choice. And they have gone overboard.

I'm entering shock. And just before Whitby too. I seem to have really quite sensible length hair. If it were someone else I would hoot with derision, but instead I'm contemplating clippers, bleach or simply hiding for the next six months.

If nothing else this had better reset the bloody karma-meter...

Bleach!

Clippers are too drastic, at least with bleach you can still be HARDCORE. And we don't want you to hide away!

There's nothing for it. You'll have to braid blue wool into it.

Bleached white mohawk! (with plastic and wool in it if you must)
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: April 21st, 2004 09:02 am (UTC) (Link)
It's a good look, but I think might be taking it a little too far wrt work...

They comb down really well and can look fairly trendy in a conventional kinda way. Trust me,I'm a doctor...

Actually, I saw a girl the other day that had managed to achieve a rather stunning mohawk effect with only the mildest of undercuts and a few hair pins. I was comtemplating trying it myself, but my hair is too long, and undercuts look fucking ridiculous if you try growing them out.

Can I play with your hair at Whitby? Can I?

And don't worry, I'm sure you're still gorgeous. :-)

exactly HOW short??
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: April 21st, 2004 09:02 am (UTC) (Link)
Erm, well it ties back into a little pony tail, and when loose is an inch or so below a tshirt collar.

So they cut about eight inches of hair off???

Sue them. Then firebomb the place. Then salt the ground.
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: April 21st, 2004 11:09 am (UTC) (Link)
Having examined the evidence, there are some 8-inch long sections, but the way my hair was they are "very straggly" for the last 4-5 inches. I've lost probably about 4 or so inches of "amount of hair" and then the stringy bits.

To make things more complicated, it was one of my mothers friends doing it as a favour - she is a pro' and I'd trusted her before.

{sympathy} anyway.

I once lost 12 inches of hair when I asked for a trim.

(OK, so it was still mid-back-length, but it seemed horrifically short to me.)

Sympathies to your missing hair, Kneeshooter.

You could try going to the hairdresser's and raising hell. I know someone who managed not only to get a refund, but extensions too.

Don't worry - the hair patrol will have you sorted in Whitby, no problem.

Just breathe.

The bastards! I can't even muster and point and laugh derision for it.

You just don't fuck with another person's hair. It's as simple as that.

Mind you, if it's long enough to tie back, it's long enough to braid/tie in stuff so I'm sure it'll be fine.

And past shoulder length is at least not a bob.

Oh dear...

I don't think I've ever had a happy or comfortable experience in a hairdressers. I have resolved to only ever cut my own hair in future.
My other resolution is never again to bleach my hair...lots fell out last April Whitby leaving bald spots (ok, I had been seriously abusing my hair and probably needed the wake-up call)...so be careful!

I have resolved only to let you cut my hair too! ;-) (You did such a good job last time...)
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: April 21st, 2004 11:15 am (UTC) (Link)
She's hired. Do you think she'll mind?

By this I mean hired for my next trim in about 3 years time at this rate.
foxy76 From: foxy76 Date: April 22nd, 2004 04:42 am (UTC) (Link)
I don't mind at all...I'm just not a very speedy hairdresser!

See you soon for hair commiserations (and maybe some beer too)

Short as in King Jellyfish short? Picture! Picture!

If it ties back into a short pony, maybe you could go as Captain Archer from that episode a couple of weeks back in the shuttle with Degra... or Lucky Jack from Master & Commander... or why not go the whole hog and get a samurai topknot a la Shogun!

Picture! GIP chance!

Short as in King Jellyfish short? Picture! Picture!

If it was that short again I would have bought a wig and wouldn't even mention that I'd had it cut.

The very thought...
ikkleblacktruck From: ikkleblacktruck Date: April 21st, 2004 12:36 pm (UTC) (Link)
So not really short then, just shorter. I liked it KJ short, btw...
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: April 21st, 2004 12:53 pm (UTC) (Link)
Not as short as you like - no :-P
ikkleblacktruck From: ikkleblacktruck Date: April 21st, 2004 01:04 pm (UTC) (Link)
Shame. It really gave you presence by standing out from the crowd. And it looked cute, of course. Or are you too old to be cute now? ;P

To quote a Sabrina episode..”Hair Grows!”

You should consider yourself lucky, at least you have hair where many people have none.

After all you are more than your hair, aren’t you? You should become one with your hair, come out from its shadow and let your personality shine through.

Or if that fails use the angst to look pained & sorrowed and thereby gain sympathy from others at this event, after all free cuddles are considered good by some.
