It had been a long time since I have been to a nice salon
to get my hairs all done professionally. Been doing it myself with a box of
color and visiting the cheapy trim shop for trying to keep the dead ends at
bay. But yesterday the Boss declared he was bored with work and was going to
the movies for the afternoon. I dashed right over to my favorite salon and
sheepishly asked if anyone was free to “fix” me without an appointment. Daniel
bounded across the floor. He wore brand new cowboy boots; hair perfectly gelled
and a Burberry scarf knotted at his neck.
“Are you sure you can squeeze me in without an
appointment?” I ask.
Daniel had a smile ten feet wide and actually took my
hand to lead me to his chair. “Whoa, back it up. BEEP! BEEP! We are going to be
great friends”, he says.
It’s true. Daniel was incredibly sweet and gentle and I
was in and out within the three hour limit to my patience (any time longer than
that and the tip dips dramatically right along with my good humor). He managed
to make my hair look exactly like the photo I brought with me and I did not
have to sacrifice two arms and a leg for a hairstyle and an eyebrow wax! BONUS!
