Neu Frisuer

It finally came. The day for my haircut! I am pleased with the cut and color and if I can afford her after she starts charging me, I will go back! She works in a very plush hotel (it has an outdoor guard) and I am not sure I can afford her but we will see!

As I was in the chair, I thought of a few cultural differences I thought I would share with you. First, at this salon, I was given a shirt and robe to wear. I went behind a curtain and changed out of my shirt, into the borrowed one and then put a robe over that. She didn't use a cape. Next came tcolor and then the wash. I love to get my hair washed, it feels sooo good! Especially here in Germany. I think they must have to massage your scalp ( or maybe just the women I go to) because both times they massaged in addition to the wash. Today the women (Katja) even used the little round thingy with the tines that massages your scalp! I also got to catch up on my american and german celebrity gossip with a couple magazines! Anyway, after the wash came the cut and cut and cut. She was very thorough. I was a little scared when I saw her go for my bangs (they're called pony here). I was afraid I was going to have to go around with a mullet! But after she was done it looked good. She did what I had wanted and so I am pleased. No blue or purple hair and no mullet. A couple things a conspicuously missing from beauty salons here though, curling irons and cleaner for the scissors and brushes. They only use a round brush and a hairdryer for styling and I am not sure what they do about cleaning their brushes. I just try not to think about it. Anyway, Here is a pic, judge for yourself.
Excuse my tired face, I was awakened at 5 am and am extremely tired!

I like it! It is pretty much exactly what I had in mind before your first haircut.

It looks great on you. I think that the German cut sounds good...with a massage! And I think that every stylist that I've gone to lately just uses a round brush and blow dryer, too.
Anyway, I really like the cut and I hope that you can fix it like she did...I hate it when I can't do it the same way!!!

I love it! The shape and color are flattering and enhancing without being just the latest fad hair cut that grabs the attention, you know? It sounds as though it was a good cut, and I've always found if I'm given a good CUT, by someone who knows what they're doing (like the woman in Carrolton with the pink mohawk-I was NERVOUS- who gave me my last cut) then my hair is easier to maintain and just does what is supposed to. Hope yours does that.
