Hello, 2015! After a month-long break from blogging, I’m back to start the New Year. Many thanks to everyone who left such thoughtful and encouraging comments on my last post. I appreciate each and every one.
I drafted a few entries over the winter break, but nothing felt good enough to publish. Everything dealing with holidays came out trite, so in the end I left the topic alone.
However, I did draw up some humorous reflections on getting a hair cut in Madrid for the website ¡VayaMadrid! As a foreigner, or guiri, it’s hard to know what to expect, or how to relay what you want in a cut. I tend to approach getting my hair cut as a chore–anywhere. So, it was difficult for me to figure out where to go, how to describe what I wanted, and also how much to expect to pay. Can you relate?
After reading, a friend commented to say that the only thing missing was an “after” picture of the anime-esque hair cut. (Eeek!) I unearthed some snapshots of the zaniest, most cartoon-ish style I was given. All I’d asked for was to have shoulder-length hair with long bangs. As you’ll see, there were plenty of layers and other…fun things…woven into the request. Random layers and helmet head, all in one!
What’s your most memorable hair-cutting experience? Share below!
