Hair Affair

Knowing that I had an important interview approaching, I threw caution to the wind and scheduled a haircut on Saturday. Because it is one of the only salons I've ever been back to more than once, and because it is under $20 for a cut, I went to Modern Cuts in Roseburg Square (Modesto). And my stylist was awesome! She is young, but very good at listening to the client and giving you what you need, even if it's not necessarily what you think you need. I came in with a vague idea of what I wanted, showed her a few photos of what I'd had before at various times, and then she took over. She said that I would look great in an a-line cut, and then started working her magic. At the end, I looked like this:


... and couldn't be happier! It makes me feel so fashionable and classy and stylish. I'm confident that I can hold my own on the streets of San Francisco... except for the whole lacking-a-wardrobe-that-matches thing.

Now I just have to go back and ask Jessica how she did it. Replicating that look in front of my bathroom sink hasn't been the easiest thing in the world, even with the new (and functional, finally!) flat iron I bought to help achieve results. But trust and believe, friends; I will master it. Oh, yes, I will.
