I cheated...

I confess it.

I cheated on my hairdresser.
Don’t ever, ever do that, if you trust and like your hairdresser.

I wanted to copy someone else’s hair. Someone younger...with longer, more beautiful locks than I. So…I went to her hairdresser, thinking that my hair would instantly be transformed into goddess hair.

Just so you know....it doesn’t work that way.

My husband said I looked strangely similar to Joan Jett…in the 80’s. NOT the look I was going for.

I did have to go to confession to my own hairdresser, who graciously didn’t gasp out too loud. She forgave me, and set out to do damage control.

A couple of months have passed. I still don’t have goddess locks like my friend. But I no longer look like an 80’s rock star. There’s hope.

Lessons learned:
(1) Don’t cheat on your hairdresser.
(2) Don’t assume that all hair carries the same haircut the same way.
(3) Don’t try to copy the hair of a young 20-something beauty queen, without first seeing if it’s even a possible with the texture of your own hair.

Hair, after all, is very important. It’s our crown, right? At least according to Proverbs 16:31. Oh wait, never mind…I think that verse says gray hair is a crown of splendor….I’m not fully ready to go there just yet.

That's a lesson we've all learned the hard way!
