My $10 Haircut

Tuesday I learned about this neat little program called Shoebox. It's an organizer/browser for photos and scrapbooking supplies on Mac.

And of course all week I have been practicing my 2nd song on the piano: How Firm a Foundation.

And now it is Thursday. And so we come to the story of my $10 haircut.

I think one of the hardest things to do when you move (at least as a woman) is to find a new hairdresser. I had a GREAT hairdresser in McKinney, and I hated to leave her. I went online and tried to find one, but boy is it hard to pick one on the internet!!

I finally decided to be brave and try Paul Mitchell's The School, which is where all the budding hair dressers go to learn to be good hairdressers. I have to admit, I was slightly nervous about it. But the location (about 10 minutes from home!) and the price (already mentioned - $10!) couldn't be beat.

Here's a before shot.

Now, all I wanted was a trim. My girl, Ellen, was super. Super but slow. A basic trim took over 1.5 hours. By the time she was done, my neck hurt and I had a terrible headache. But look at the result!

In this case, I think it's a good thing that the before and after shots look so similar, don't you?

wow - your hair has gotten really long! Looks great.

The schools always take a long time.. I've done that before. Also, the dental school out here - you can get work done for less, but it takes a LONG time. I don't go there. :-)
