Being very brave

Well, today I'm about to be brave again and entrust my hair to someone I don't know and don't share a first language with...

I did it at New Year's - found a hairdresser in Cusco, Peru and entrusted my hair to her with my very basic Spanish...  Now, I have to do it again but in in Stockholm, Sweden - without a word (well, other than your basic hi, bye, thank you type words) of the language!  I think that's brave...

I have this horrible lanky blonde mop at the moment - courtesy of months of travelling in the last year, where it's always just easier to stick it up (and not being near my trusty hairdresser!) and the fact that my SO likes long hair.  I keep trying to get the message across that my hair is never going to be this beautiful long thick mane that he admires on other women - my hair is fine, and mostly straight and really needs work to get it to look decent (of course after all this time of neglect, even a lot of work has stopped making it look decent!).

And so, with (for a change) a very firm idea (and multiple photos) of what I'd like my hair to resemble when I leave the place, and my big girl panties on - I'm off, to brave the hairdresser and hope like heck I get something decent - preferably resembling in some way the idea I have in mind!  Wish me luck!

  4. You did the same thing in Buenos Aires. With ghastly results.

    Maybe this is why stars travel with their own hairdressers...

  5. hmmm, I had forgotten about BA - that was pretty awful...

    Funny, neither BA nor Cusco hairdressers made me cry in their salon, strangely I probably like the result of this one better - despite the tears and arguments!
