The article goes on to mention how the hair stylist really knows her stuff: she spends time looking at the condition of the hair AND the scalp, and she carefully chooses which oils and acids to apply and where. She creates her own gloss treatment and is all about pampering. At the end, the haircut looks nice, but it also looks a LOT like haircuts I had in college.
This is the gal who received the $1,000 haircut:
|Overly excited me, Fall 2005. Roommates got chopped out because I love them enough to do so. You're welcome.|
So I had a difficult time paying a lot for a haircut. The last time I got a haircut was last Fall in Humboldt. The boy who cut it was named Tyler and he was the cutest, gayest hair stylist I have ever had. He kept walking circles around me, picking up bits of my hair and saying things like, "oh my," and "ummm.... hmm. Okay." He did NOT like my previous haircut (neither did I). He took a long time cutting and styling my hair, and it was worth the $35 cut (which is hard for me to say since it was the most expensive cut I have ever gotten). I still didn't go back to him, because it was hard for me to spend that much on a haircut.
So, once again, I've taken to cutting my own hair. I've been doing it for almost a year now, and it's not AHHHmazing, but it's not bad. If you have long, pretty much straight hair, it's not hard, and it will save you cash. Even if you just trim it in between 'real haircuts,' it's an easy way to save cash.
I do not recommend it for those with curly hair or short hair, however.
Just don't do it.
But I cut mine tonight and I feel like it came out pretty well. Maybe I'll take a picture tomorrow... although (SPOILER ALERT!!) it pretty much looks like this:
