The only bad thing was how long it took...

Erica's haircut 2-16-05

A couple of months ago, I let my mom give me a perm, which probably wasn't the best idea because I looked like a poodle and couldn't do anything with it to make it look good. I've been trying to grow it out and do with it what I could.

Since there are a number of beauty schools in town, and one of them is on the same block on which I live, I decided to give them a chance to help me out. Also, they don't charge as much for their services as most salons in town.

The lady who cut my hair was a senior, but she still had to get some guidance from one of the instructors there. She did a really nice job getting the curl out of my hair (although I'll have to continue trying to do this until the perm is actually gone).

My appointment was at 2 p.m., but I didn't get done with my hair until almost 4 p.m. The school was running a special on their services (BOGO 1/2 off), so I decided to get my eyebrows waxed, too.

I got a really nice cut and had my eyebrows waxed for less than $15! As I said in the title, the only bad thing was that it took so long.

So tell me... What do you think? Give me your honest opinion so I know whether to go back to the same lady next time.

Love it. Seriously. You've inspired me to do the same.

I have never heard you compare your hair to that of a poodle. Amusing. As long as Ron likes it and he does :

Then that is all that matters since he is the one that has to look at you every day.

I think it looks good (and better than before), but my opinion is inconsequential as I don't have to look at you more than once a week.

I'm sympathetic to you frustrations with having curly hair, even if you only had a perm.

Getting the right hair cut can be hard, and getting it to stop curling is even harder. I think you look great, and the impossible was accomplished (taming curly hair, not making you look great, that's easy).

I might be joining you in the cut off the hair trend if Olivia doesn't stop pulling (and she most likely won't).
