Hair Woes

Holy humidity. They told me it was going to be muggy but sheesh. I feel like I'm on the beach in California.

Frizzy hair.

Sweat running down my cleavage.

Shiny face.

Are my clothes wet?

It was 93 on Saturday. Pretty hot. But still, after living in Las Vegas for six years, muggy or not, 93 ain't so bad. No sweat....or maybe I should use a different word. Yes sweat. No problem. I'm looking forward to being able to actually spend some time outdoors this summer (in Vegas you don't go outside at all from June to October). I don't care if I have frizzy hair and a shiny face - save me a margarita and I'll be outside lounging on the porch under the umbrella!

Speaking of frizzy hair...have you ever paid a good amount of money (let's say...$150) to get your hair done, only to have it look FUG a mere four weeks later?

What the freak?

Why can't I find a hairdresser that can cut hair AND color it? I only seem to find one or the other.

Great haircut... but the color blows.

OR, I love my color but gee, what's this random piece of hair that's two inches longer than the rest doing here?


Or should I say FUG.

That's me right now. I got my hair done a few weeks ago, and, although the color was a little *bright* for my taste, it looked good. However, she didn't put the color all the way to my scalp, so the freakin highlight line is already really prevalent. I hate roots! But my natural hair color is so dishwater and boring.

If I go dark, my hair turns penny-red. Red is good. Penny-red is nice when it's natural. But when it's penny-red with shades of green (hello, hair color!) it's tacky and gross.

Wouldn't you agree?

Blast. I don't have time for this shit. I thought telling my last stylist that I have a full time job, two kids and a husband was enough of a hint that I don't have the damn time to come back so she can fix her shit.

Guess I need to be more clear next time.

Yes, I'd like a few highlights, a basic trim and....dude, don't fuck up my hair.

Oh well. Now I'm on a mission to find a different hair girl, so I can start the stupid process all over again....

For $150 the hairsylist better get it right and it should look fab no matter what weather circumstances.

I was humid as hell yesterday too. And I wear a suit. It's just not fair I tells ya.

If you find a solution to the frizz problem, let me know!

I deeply feel your pain. 4 years later and I still look like a humidity hag. If one more person with bad hair tries to send me to their person, I may punch them in the face.

$150 should leave you freaking amazing, I wouldn't let them touch me, but I damn sure would be getting some of my money back. They would know ugly!

Lol, go throw that F-bomb you love so much and a BB report around a few times, they'll either call the cops or pay you to leave.

I guess here in Colorado we dont have to worry about humidity much. Now dryness, yes! I was sitting at my computer the other day and my hair was so staticy that it was gravitating toward my screen, sticking to my face and looking like my hands were on one of those static balls at the museum......

I love your hair right now. You just have to find someone that do it right!!! I'm sorry and good luck.

I always tell a new girl or guy that they have 3 strikes and they are out! Good luck finding a new one! Do they have a Tanaz's or Mitchell's in your area.....they are really good!

i say: you need to spend as much care finding a hairdresser as you do finding a husband (maybe more)
