The Virus Diary: A Hairy Tale
On This Day In History: March 8, 2020: Bfth gets her hair professionally cut and colored.
Why is this an historical
event? Ok, it's NOT an historical event, but it is the last time that I
got my hair cut and colored professionally. Since that date I have gotten
my hair professionally cut once and I have lightened my hair (thank you Sun
In), but not both.
In some ways this date marks
the end of an era. I know that seems overly dramatic and probably is, but...
J, who used to cut and color my
hair, only had an opening on Sunday morning. I had wanted to have an
appointment later in the month; closer to Easter and other planned social
events. However, his calendar was booked, so I took it. He wore a
mask as he did his work. He said he hoped I didn't mind. I
didn't. I got it; sort of. It seemed overkill to me. (What a
fool!) We chatted as usual as he worked his magic. And about two hours
later I was done. Hair blonder and shorter, I was looking and feeling
J stopped doing hair after that. I had hoped he might consider working outside in my yard, but understood when he said no. I was sad. He is more than just someone who cuts my hair; he is a friend and I miss the conversations we had and the music we listened to.
He recommended another person for me to try. I did in September. G was great. I was very comfortable in the shop and pleased with the results. A cut with no color; although I still had some of J's professional color in there and I had done some on my own over the summer.
