Musing on my 'Haircut'

Never underestimate the power of a good haircut! Its often the case that a new haircut can change your entire personality - even take you out of a 10 year depression! Just watch those makeover shows and you'll see the true makeover 'moment' or the fashion 'light-bulb moment' comes right after the haircut - there is something about changing your hair that creates a new sense of self! You can always tell a good haircut from a bad haircut - when you get a good haircut, you walk out of the salon with your head held high, you are a new, free, powerful 'goddess'! With a bad haircut, you either leave crying or attempting to put on a half-smile, meanwhile inside you feel like shattered glass! I have experienced both! Recently, I was toying around with the idea of getting 'bangs', ever since I saw Kate Hudson in 'Bride Wars' - I wanted bangs. I was talking to my 'then' hairdresser, she said 'no way, bangs aren't for you' - my heart sunk when I heard these words because every fiber of my being wanted bangs. Needless to say, she is no longer my hairdresser - I now go to see one of those good-looking Greek male hairdressers that makes you feel like a bombshell from the second you sit in his chair. All I can say is that when he gave me bangs for the first time, I walked out of there feeling so high, no drug could reproduce that feeling - I was high on life, high on feeling good about myself!!! That, my dear friends, is what a good hairdresser and a good haircut does!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
