If you want to get out of your rut, I recommend doing something really dramatic with your hair (other options are more expensive and potentially ruinious). It’s fast, painless, and if it’s REALLY dramatic, people start conversations with you and smile a lot more. I like that sort of blowback from a haircut. Got it yesterday.
I walked into Moda, a stylish little salon in Norman, Oklahoma (okay, get your head around that concept and we can continue) with my unruly mop, and walked out with a wild tousled espresso colored bob with slices of bright caramel swirling like a Chez Panisse dessert. Or a Starbucks holiday drink.
The cut was done by Shane, who I met in the JRB Gallery one day when I was bringing in paintings. He simply said, “I cut curly hair, and I can do something with that”.
I now worship Shane- he was true to his word. He spent a lot of time shaping my hair, knowing that what curly looks like wet is nothing like how it looks dry. Curl has a mind of its own.
Getting there- but it’s just a little Republican. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
I brought in pictures of the top-vote-getting styles in my earlier post (#6, #3 #2,#4) and he used them as a guideline and got a good synthesis of all four with his own take overlaid and improving everything.
The colorist was the inventive and daring Misha, to whom I said “I’m an artist. I can do wacky”.
She used her good taste and restraint to create color styling that has artistic and creative written all over it using three colors cutting in and out of the layers Shane had put in earlier. Dramatic, fun, and wonderful. A toast to my new do, and to my new hair team at Moda.
Okay, back to that highbrow discussion of Art. Now, where was I?
