What's In A Haircut?
Tomorrow I take myself to the salon ... with every woman's fond hope that a haircut will change my life.
Way too long -- the time between haircuts and the hair itself. I have a friend -- also a woman of a certain age -- who warns against the Yoko Ono syndrome. Also known as Country and Western hair. Too long for one's age.
Mine is about three inches below my shoulders and I'm at that critical stage where a terrible mistake could happen. A Mia Farrow mistake. A "cut it all off so that I look like a pixie" [a 54 year old pixie?] mistake. Horrible things can happen when you're sick of your hair.
So tomorrow I will forbear. I will say, "Please trim three inches off; I want a very blunt cut." A moderate approach. A reasonable woman making a reasoned request.
Then we can talk color. Are stripes back in?
