There are few things in a woman’s life that have more impact on your attitude for lower cost, less time and committment than a drastic haircut. I mean, seriously – how much more change can a person achieve in 50 minutes, for $50 and know that if you don’t like it, it WILL (eventually) grow back?
So this morning I went to see Viola, my wonderful stylist at Salon Colour in Dunwoody. She’s been cutting my hair, on and off for about 7 years now. Occasionally I try someone different, but I usually come back to her because we’re spookily connected when it comes to my hair. Today when I walked in I said I wanted to go short like Jamie Lee Curtis – and she said she had just been thinking about suggesting a short, cute, easy to style cut for me.
So here I am, channeling my inner Jamie Lee Curtis. I actually thought it would show my gray/dark roots more, but oddly, it seems to camouflage them. I haven’t’ had my hair this short since 1984 when I lived near the King’s Road in London and got it chopped super punk short.
I love it, but I did immediately buy new earrings and put on lipstick to avoid the whole, excuse me, Sir, thing.
