The 2 1/2 hour haircut

Since I mentioned in the previous post that I was going for a much needed haircut, I thought I'd share some of the pics of my new cut with you.   There's actually something of a story to go along with them, but pictures first...


Okay, so there you have it.  Please disregard the rather stupid faces I'm making in most of these pictures, I can't help it, I'm not all that photogenic these days.  Besides, the pics are about the hair!

So, the wind was blowing like crazy yesterday and my hair appointment got moved up from 5pm to 1pm because the gal that was to cut my hair had some cancellations.  I jumped at the earlier appointment, but asked Matt to drive me because it was crazy windy.  Reluctantly, he agreed, but told me that he was going to go to Hastings to wait.  Since neither of us have a cell phone, I told him not to do that, just to wait.  He told me if I wanted a ride, he was going to Hastings to wait, to which I could not but nod.  When he dropped me off, I told him to be back in about a half an hour.  That's what I expect a haircut to take, 30 minutes.  He agreed, but when I went inside, I found that the lady wasn't back from lunch.  That's my fault, not hers, since I was about 10 minutes or so early.

I waited for her for about 20 minutes and when she got back we talked about what sort of cut I wanted for another, oh, 10 minutes or so.  After that, it was off to the wash, which I think probably took about 15 minutes.  My hair is very thick, and honestly, I love the feel of someone else washing my hair. I could go to sleep like that and let them wash my hair forever!  She cut and dryed and flat ironed my hair and I left the salon looking like I'd just left a salon!  When I got outside and into the car, Matt looked at me like he might kill me and said, "You were in there two and a half hours!"

Now, he swears up and down that he wasn't mad at me, but I think he probably was.  Of course, if he reads this and finds out I'm telling you he's mad at me, he'll be mad at me, so it's really 6 of one, half dozen of the other.  Anyway, he liked my haircut, but it didn't get the reaction I was really hoping for.  I told him that I was going to make him an appointment with the gal who cut my hair, to which he replied that he was NOT going there, citing the lengthy time it took for her to cut mine.  I hardly think it'll take so long to run a clipper through his hair and scissor the top.

So, now I look fabulous for my job interview!  I can wear my hair down with much more ease and since she textured it, it feel much lighter.  Whether it is or not, I don't know.  All in all, it was worth the two and a half hours it took to get it cut!  I am definitely going back to her... definitely!


  1. It looks great Kristyn--very light and healthy. I am officially inspired now to chop off some of my own nappy mane.

  2. It looks FANTASTIC! I REALLY need to do something with my hair--I haven't even had a trim in over two years.

  3. RAWR!!! You hottie you! You look fantabulous!
    I used to go to salons to get my hair cut but I've since stopped going to those trendy spots. I prefer a good ole' barber shop.

    For a guy, there is just something "right" about sitting down in a chair with a bunch of guys, talking football, politics or the occasional dirty joke and getting a haircut. LOVE the ambiance of the place. It's so, Americana.

    Having a barber dust your hairline with powder and then foam you up and trim you with a straight edge razor is an experience that no man should ever go without. Top that off with a moist hot towel on your face and all of your life's troubles melt away.

    If you have a barber in town, DEFINITELY have Matt check it out. Oh, most times, barbers are cheaper!

    Looking GREAT Kristyn!

  4. Totally not lying. That cut is sexilicious on you. And tell Matt I said your hair is cute, therefore it is. <.<

  5. Shit. Forgot to add "good luck at the job interview!"

  6. I LOVE the new cut. You know I chopped mine a few months ago. I was scared as hell cause it was always so long, but I LOVE it. takes like 10 mins to dry instead of forever!

  7. Thanks guys!! I'm glad y'all like it. I'm really happy with it and hopefully, I'll be able to keep it trimmed and looking like that.

  8. Looks soo pretty honey... Did you have it colored too? or is it just the light? So hey how'd the job interview go?
    Love ya, Mom
