went to a new hair salon, I was desperately needing a color and trim. It's hard here for me to arrange my appointments with the language barrier. I have bounced from Salon to Salon with no loyalty... mostly because I don't want to wait for an appointment easier to just walk in and do my charades and bam! it's done.
This is seriously maybe five houses away from mine, I've never been there before. I ride my bike by there all the time, but never stopped there. I always figured what if it went wrong....I'd have to break up with them and then what how awkward would that be. But seeing that I'm moving I thought why not.....
I'm glad I did. I went in and the owner Katrina was very nice. She looked like Paula Abdul, seriously it freaked me out. So she speaks some English, I make my appointment and she asks my name. I say Kathy and I spell it in German, the alphabet is different...So I K..A..T..H.....and suddenly I forget how to say Y ! I'm searching my brian....got nothing, so I say i which sounds like E. So my whole life I've always been I'm Kathy with a Y and suddenly within seconds I've changed my name to Kathy with a i ! This has been my life here you just adapt and go with the flow....it made me laugh....I thought wow who are you! Kathy with an i!
Okay so I've got my hair date and I'm pumped, you know when you are aware your hair is bad but are in complete denial of how bad. So I did my hair so she would see how I do it....brilliant I know! One would think. So I have never been able to get anyone here give me high lights only single color. But not my new girl she was willing to shake it up and color and add highlights. I pick my color from a color wheel and bam! we are off. The girl that did my hair was very nice she spoke some English but decided it was best to just talk to me in German. So I did a lot of nodding and ja! I was a little scared, not sure that we understood each other on color...when she mixed my highlight color she said your hair this color it's good....it was violet...I was all nein bitter...with a begging tone. Suddenly she was funny girl hahahaha I just kidding! WTF! There is no humor when mixing colors my friend!
Three hours later... she is done! She styled my hair like never before. I wish I was brave enough to take a picture...at one time I had 10 roll brushes in my hair I look like Medusa minus the green. The end result I like the color ....thank god! But I couldn't stop laughing after I left ......I rode home so fast to show Katelyn how puffy my hair was...I felt like one of Charles Angles old version 1970's!
Before and after:
Pictures really don't do justice of the amount of volume....just trust me! But end result NO GREY!! Woot !
