Before getting into the dire need to find a good hairdresser to take care of the craziness that lives on top of my head, I would like to say Whoo-Ha last post was my 100th post! I’d planned a big celebratory thing with balloons and slinkies and things, but it slipped right by unnoticed until I went into my blog account today and saw the happy news. 100 posts. And this is 101.
Now to the important bits of this post which is a dire request for hairdresser suggestions. I got my haircut mid-move without doing as much research as I normally would (and that those of us with crazy hair need to do) and ended up with a haircut that is not one of my best. It is also not one of the worst, heck, it’s not even the worst this year, but it is definitely lacking in a certain something. Style might be the word I’m looking for. Also, there’s a Little Orphan Annie-ness that I try to avoid that seems to have sprung up with this new do. It requires much mashing down etc. to keep it in line and I’m planning to look into hats until the next cut, but when I do go for the next cut (which will be a bit, I need to do some growing out first!), I would like to be prepared.
Any suggestions? Greatest hairdressers in Portland ever? Specializing in crazy hair? Nice to talk to, doesn’t skulk around bat-like giving disparaging glances?
Also, I am not fond of hairdressers who complain about how grotesquely heavy my head is when it’s wet (nothing I can do about this) or say that my hair looks like a “horse’s tail” (true quote). I prefer euphemisms and excited for the challenge type attitudes.
I suddenly have this feeling that I am like those sad children in the Mary Poppins film who think they can write up their nanny requirements and expect their dream nanny to float down from the sky. Except she did, didn’t she?
I might try putting my req’s to music to see if it helps.
Any suggestions out there? Do you have the Mary Poppins of hairdressers?
