So you know I'm thrifty. Frugal? Cheap? It's true. So when I had my second child, I broke up with my fancy hair guy. I have taken on our local hair academy, which is no easy task. No hair disaster, but I did learn a few things today (if you are one of the 3 people who follow my Twitter feed, this will be like deja vu):
*Number 1: Time is not money. For if it was, a basic hair cut would not take 2 hours.
*Number 2: Neck and upper back tattoos, and maybe a sleeve, really probably help cutting precision.
*Number 3: Acid washed jeans are making a comeback. It scares me. I feel about them the way my most must have felt about bell bottoms.
*Number 4: The 20 year old student asked how I style my hair. 15 year age difference evident in the confusion on my face.
*Number 5: All jeans should be tight on your arse. I mean seriously skin tight. Maybe it helps them remain upright all day?
*Number 6: Head-only practice mannequins are creeptastic. And they stare at you.
*Number 7:Don't panic when the student stylist tells instructor she's never done that cut before. Or when she fails to even tell you her name. I'm sure it's just because she's concentrating.
*Number 8: I am old. Old and definitely not trendy. AND I'm okay with that.
