A girly sadness

By , December 29, 2010 3:47 pm

I feel kind of silly – well, kind of girly – to be bummed about this, but I just learned my hair stylist moved to Baltimore last month. She didn’t exactly do anything amazing with my hair, but I liked her a lot and had seen her for maybe 10 years. She was one of the first people I came out to (in college) who was neither a friend, family member, or doctor, and going to the salon where she worked of the first publicly ‘girly’ things I allowed myself to do.

In a small way, this makes my life easier, since I had to come up to Evanston instead of going to one of the many salons down the street from me in Chicago. At the same time, I’m going to miss having someone I know so well – and who knows me – and have to search out someone new.

Stay tuned, though! Hopefully I’ll come back with photos of an amazing new haircut…

    Don’t feel silly!

    Seriously, (I feel silly saying seriously, but I am serious) a good relationship with a hairdresser is a hard thing to find!

    Every woman I know has at least one “traumatic haircut” story. My husband still sort-of-jokes about my great hair disaster of 1996 story. To hear him tell it, I was in tears for *days*. That’s just not true. But I sure was seriously unhappy.

    Yeah, hair should be trivial. I’m with Douglas Adams. Except it’s not. It’s just not easy to feel good if you think your hair looks bad.

    Shallow, me?

    Here’s hoping you can find someone new that you feel good about.

    Is she still practicing down here?
