I called a couple of salons to do the big locks of love hair donation thing. I figured if I'm going to go short, then it had better be a salon-good haircut. And holy moly...$50-$80 for a haircut??? I about died. I'm used to paying $15 at TGF Haircutters.
Then I started thinking I should take the opportunity to dye my hair for the first time ever (thank you motherhood for the plethora of gray/white you have added to my head), but then I started thinking about the upkeep...you have to have that redone like every 6 weeks or something, right? Yeah. I get a trim about twice a year right now.
My conclusion is that I must be cheap and lazy, because these are things that women are doing all the time and I'm getting sticker and timing shock over them.
