Bad Haircut

I always have a bad haircut. That’s because I use Super Cuts or I cut it myself. Either way, it’s bad. I have a friend with perfect hair. Always cut so it falls in a smooth line, always colored and highlighted to awesomeness. That hair is an attention-getter with its beauty. She fusses with it – pulls it back, lifts it, emphasizes it. If you compared the two of us simply by comparing haircuts and nothing else, you’d get a pretty decent interpretation of our personalities.

  1. Bad haircut, baby. I don’t get haircuts. Got the shoulder length thing going. But when I see pictures of myself the hair looks stringy (and gray), never looks as good (?) as it does in the mirror. Anais Nin said “We don’t see things as they are, we see things as we are.”
    So does my hair look good or not?
    Doesn’t matter. It is directly tied into images of my youth. The things that resonated with me. The long hair means something to me beyond vanity.
    Then again it looks good slicked back……………….

  2. Had an encounter with Dhoop Chau barber( Dhoop – sunshine, Chau – shadow), the charges and the ambience is down to earth, both literally & metaphorically.Right on the pavement.Its common in India. It looked like some groovy, rockstar style – highly inappropriate but funny.Friends : rats have eaten your hair randomly.I knew who the rat was.Upside : i saved money 300%, , was funny & entertaining> Downside : ridicule & took six months to make it look decent by my standards.
