Nothing I Can Do About it Now

Infinity Within

Filed under: Uncategorized — dregina @ 1:52 pm

So I’m about to go get my hair cut at this new place. I have this problem, this deeply personal problem, where I’ll go and get one or two really GREAT haircuts out of a stylist, and I’ll think I’ve done it, I’ve finally broken the bad hair barrier for the last time HALLELUJAH…..then haircut #3 will not be so good, and not only that but the conversation was bad, and that’s just awkward, and then #s 4 and 5 are also not so good and the conversation only gets worse, and by haircut #6 I am looking at the haircuts of women around me, and wondering where they go to get their hair done, and the next thing you know I have a new salon and a new stylist that I just love love love love, until haircut #3 sets me back behind the bad hair barrier YET AGAIN.

 Also? I had a bob for about 4 years? And then? Six months after I decided to grow it out? It became the new big haircut. Which I am actually relieved about, because if people thought I used Victoria Beckham for my personal fashion inspiration, I would have to kill myself.  

So, new salon! Look at what they’re promising me:

At the root of Aveda’s New Salon’s holistic spa philosophy are the five elements found in nature (and within each of us): Infinity, Air, Fire,Water and Earth. Before each service, we ask our guests to complete an Elemental NatureSM Questionnaire which allows our therapists to create personalized treatments and self-care rituals based on your Elemental NatureSM.

I’m not just going to get my hair cut, I’m going to learn about my Elemental Nature AND a therapist is going to create a Self-Care Ritual for me! I hope it includes ice cream.

P.S.  I had NO IDEA I had infinity within me. That seems so impossible. I guess I should start trying harder!



  1. i’m going to get my haircut at the aveda training school on saturday for $12 on my way to my very first gay lady wedding. i opted out of the additional $2 “blowout”, because that’s the opposite of what i like my hair to do. i just have to be careful to keep those little hair cuttings off my fancypants.

  2. That whole ‘salon cycle’ thing that you’re talking about, same here, All.My.Life. Sup with that?? I’m with you on the ice cream part though!! LOL!! Good luck with your haircut, I’m going on Monday. 🙂

  3. I’m a stylist and I have to admit that by the time a client returns the second or third time, we’re thinking (whether consciously or not) “I don’t have to work so hard to please this person.” They obviously like what I’m doing with their hair and we’ve gotten to know each other, so I don’t feel I have to talk the whole time. It’s pretty tiring to stand on your feet all day and entertain people too, so we are pretty thankful for some down time. I know how you feel though as I am pretty picky about my hair.
