Why Does My Hair Look So Weird?

Next time you're sitting in a hair stylist's chair and her stylist friend starts talking with her about "try to look at the positive," and "come out drinking with me tonight to make it better," and your stylist responds with, "I can't, because I didn't sleep last night," just get up and walk away. Leave the salon immediately.

Or, if you stay and let the morose stylist give you some highlights, be sure to leave before she suddenly becomes maniacally cheerful and starts chopping at your hair.

Oh, well. At least it's not like I'm about to meet several hundred people for the first time.

Oh. Wait. I am.

  2. Oh come on! How bad can it be?

    BTW - I am coloring my hair myself tonight in time for BlogHer. For serious. I figure if it turns out crazy then I have something to blog about...

  3. I'm sure it's just fine... right? If not, just tell everyone the ants did it while you were sleeping.

  6. Could you start a new hat trend? Last time I got a bad haircut, I was lucky in that it was long enough to be "fixed" by another stylist. I knew it didn't look good - but when my mother (who is all about being positive) suggested that she make an appointment with her stylist (IMMEDIATELY) I knew it was worse than I thought...

  7. No picture huh?
    Do you remember when Craig got a REALLY bad haircut? The manager came over to say how sorry they were and of course he wouldn't be charged. At the end, the manager asked, "what do you think people will say?" and Craig responded with, "nice hat".
    Time to bring out the baseball caps Stimey.

  8. Could be worse. You could have tried a Toni Home Perm.

    I bet you look great. No matter what the ants did to your hair.

  10. Oh dear. Well, just think of it this way: When everyone says how great your hair looks at BH, you can tell them that this is actually BAD hair for you. Then they'll be in awe of the fact that your hair can actually look even better than it does right now. There's always that.
