Taking the style out of hairstyle


Why do I do it…..I always do it…today I was in a fernickety mood…yes I am sure it’s a word…anywho..I had to head into the big smoke…well not Melbourne as such but our big smoke..

Reason being long story short..i had to get a refund on some meat that was rank and some bread that when I took it out of the freezer had grown a green beard…years in the food industry has me taking no prisoners when it comes to ‘off’ food.
So I head into town..and when I get there I am sweating like an idiot my hair is driving me nuts…it’s in a pony tail but it still weighs at least 9 kilos and is thicker than treacle..it’s flicking in my face and I am sweating and whipping of layers of clothes like I am about to go for a swim…
Got the picture..ok..so I do it again…yes I walk up to a quick cuts hair dresser…I don’t go to a salon and make a booking..no not impulse geared me
and sure enough in ten minutes they can get me in..even waiting I knew I was making an epic mistake…not dissing these hairdressers..but I am…
I am awkward at salons at the best if times,i feel like a phoney..i am a woman who works fixing fencing digging holes burning off gorse piled to the moon..i cuddle dogs and cats and sheep I wear boots..but I am still a girl .
I wear overalls with ribbons in my hair and flash nails..i am in fact an enigma..it is this enigma I have trouble with at salons..i feel phoney because when I say how I would like my hair I am sure I get what they think my hair should look like for a 5o plus year old hole digger..
I sat down explained it was way too thick and long and causing me grief in the sweating department (not really singing my feminine praises) and that I would like it a lot shorter and described with my hands and hair how I wanted it…
So 28 dollars later (I know) I got what I paid for..and me being me said “that’s great thanks”.
Well great it ain’t…I hate it more than the dentist…it is so boofy I feel like a damn cottonwool ball has been plopped on my head..i then had to go get this refund which ended with the woman grilling me as if I was a criminal…being upset with my hair and her grilling I was beset with a massive hot flush which made me LOOK like a criminal..so I got my refund and left.
I got in the car and looked in the rear vision mirror perhaps wondering if there had been a miracle between “Thank’s it’s great” and ‘There was no way I was driving in here for half and hour with rancid meat on the passenger seat’
Now hubby say’s it just needs to settle it’s not got all that hair to weigh it down……I say weigh it down with a concrete block…
So as I get ready for bed minus at least 8.5 kilos of hair all I can say is why???
How much did I have hacked off..about 7 inches…yes I am a nut…
I am off to buy product tomorrow and hopefully I will look less like a cotton wool ball….

  1. ohhh my you poor thing!!!!!!! We always envy in others what we don’t have ourselves. I would LOVE to have “long and THICK” hair!!! I am doubting that you look bad and I agree with your husband that often hairstyles have to “set” after they are cut. Is it still long enough to put into a ponytail til it grows a bit? I am sure no matter what you still look beautiful!!!!! Damn menopause and those hot flashes! xoxoxo

  2. Sorry that it went so wrong … but at least you recognised yourself as you looked in the rear vision mirror and you hadn’t to call the pawlice for a strange woman in your car :o) I guessed it, it happened to me too always when I visited a hair salon impromtu. And I cried bitter tears sometimes. I decided to be my own hair dresser. I still cry bitter tears sometimes for the pitiful results but my whole family gets free entertainment when they see the results of another nailed youtube-tutorial :o)

  3. bev……you think it looks bad…. but the picture of green bread and stinkin meat is still in your “minds eye” ….& getting in the way…if you still think it looks bad even after the mister says it looks great; hair gel and a head scarf will come in handy… trust me on this, I cut my own hair and learned this pronto after the right side was loped 2 inches shorter than the left, then that had to be fixed then the left was too long….and well…….let’s just say a pony tail can be managed in just about any length !! β™₯β™₯ laura

  5. Firstly love the new look. I hope it is a new look as you have a super new header and it is all while and blue and it is so much easier to read. Nice one. Salons no way here either. Hopefully the puff ball will smooth down over night. We are sure nothing that a good wash and dry won’t fix. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  6. Aww bless you! I can totally sympathise. I hate the hairdressers with a passion but I have a full on 70’s style afro if it isn’t tamed so it’s a necessity. Because of that though. I have had so many terrible cuts you wouldn’t believe!… I don’t know what some of these hairdressers do though, but they seem to blow dry them in a way that makes you look like you have a cloud on your head! Fingers crossed that when you wash out the dry and it settles back down you’ll like it again AND it’ll be tons lighter!

  7. I feel for you, no matter where I go I ended up looking ridiculous after a hair cut. I have a scar and cowlick and always tell them to not cut the hair too short where they are so they can be covered. Do they do that??? No, I look like my finger has been in a light socket when they are finished. Sure does hurt to pay for what looks worse after we go in than before we did, huh? Sending you big hugs and hope you get your hair settled down soon. I know it must feel better at least as far as weight. More hugs!!!

  9. Well Bev now that you are half way there, you can join me and go to the “less than 1 inch club”! My poor hairdresser has given up on my hair. It is baby fine, thinner than ever now that I am in my late 40’s with cowlicks everywhere and grows like a damn weed. Cure to all this = short, sassy and let the wildness rule! She was laughing as she cut it super short Saturday since I was hotflash Fanny and had her cut it super short even for me but my goodness do I feel better! To hell with it! I don’t need to impress anyone and I was the only cool one at work at the hospital today when we were balls to the wall πŸ™‚

  10. Oh dear. We can totally relate Fozzie Mom…whenever we go to the groomers we always ask for just a smidgen off the top and inevitably we come home virtually naked! Butt as mom always tells us: furs (or in your case, hair) luckily grows back. Oh and mom told us to tell you that Mr Fozzie Mom is probably right, your hair is in shock from not being weighed down and needs a day or two to settle.

  11. Though I am not as lucky as you to have long and thick hair, I do know how you feel Bev. My hair is thin and short – I always also sweat in my hair and face first. Very irritating! Hubby’s been my ‘hairdresser’ for the past few years and he is doing a great job as I don’t care for the ‘latest fashion trends’. Just short and manageable suits me fine. I get terrible headaches when they grow too long. Don’t ask me why. They don’t really weigh anything. Guess if they get too long they start growing into the few braincells I still have. hahahaha! Hang in there hon. Love your hair! πŸ˜€ β™₯ Hugs β™₯

  12. My hair is very thick and has just enough of a curl so that it looks bad when it is too short or too long. My wife is always hounding me to put hair gel in it, which I will do for her, but I hate the feel of it in my hair. I just don’t worry about it. I don’t have a job where it matters. If people don’t like the way my hair looks, that is their problem, not mine.
