TGIF by Angie Ledbetter

Yay, it's Friday, and in honor of the end of another work and school week, I think I'm going to treat myself to a haircut. (Not the usual kind I get on the run from Super Duper Bill's that costs $9.95, but the real kind, in a real salon.) Although I'm saying, "TGIF" because it's almost time for the weekend, I'm sure my kids are saying it for another reason -- Thank Goodness It's Fixed, meaning Mom's hair.

While at the salon, I'm hoping the professionals there can wave their magic wands, sprinkle on the magic dust, and utter the proper incantations to bring this client from a look which resembles hair in a windstorm to something more befitting a woman with pride in self.

So, even if my vision of loveliness doesn't come true, at least I'll enjoy the luxury of having my hair washed and pampered as I lean my smocked self back in the reclining chair. And just for today, my bad hair day will be someone else's responsibility. Now, that's something worth being grateful for!

Good for you! Send me a pic of it when it's done.

I haven't been in a "salon" for a hc in a long time...I go in the Maggie Valley "Angie's Hair Design" (no relation ...haw)...where Tinker cuts my boyshort hair for under $20...no frills!

I have an appointment in a couple of days for a haircut too! We are hair cycling, Angie. I haven't been for months. It really does make me feel better when my "Hair Whisperer" works his magic. He's amazing. Today it's pouring and that means I go curly which shortens it about 4 incles. I hope you have a good relaxing day at the salon!

Enjoy every single self-care moment!

As great as my stylist is at cutting and styling my hair, the thing I most look forward to when I go see her is the shampooing. It's the most relaxing thing to me (next to a professional massage).

I'm actually getting my hair done tomorrow morning, so it looks like a lot of us will be enjoying the salon experience this weekend. TGIF!

Thanks, guys. I think I'll use all that water spraying in my face to let out a few tears for my 16-y.o. Boston who died last night. ;(

Ami, I hope your hair day turns out as nice as mine. The stylist gave a great shampoo including a mini-scalp massage, cut and style. I think I'll put this on my regular to-do list.
