I’m spending my obligatory day in the office this week, which is really a waste of my time because I cannot accomplish anything with all the “Oh Hai!!! Where ya been??”’s and the working on my laptop and the noise. But, it was a term of my WAHM deal and it is also one less day of daycare since the office is close to my mom’s so I should really just shut up about it. Still though, a whole lot of noting gets accomplished when I am here away from my things.
Tuesday night, I decided to color my hair because the grey was completely out of control. I’d bought the color before Christmas, medium dark brown or something, and I usually go more reddish brown, so the darkness, especially on my scraggly ends, was pretty overwhelming. I had a full punch card for a free hair cut, and my schedule was pretty open yesterday, so I decided to go on my lunch break and I had it cut. I had my eyebrows done on a whim too since I wasn’t spending any money, and had no cash on me for a tip. I’m pleased with the results, though still not totally used to the dark brown. For the record, the color matched my roots exactly, so this is as close to “natural” as I have been for many years.
Is there anything less flattering than those salon mirrors though? Sitting there in my cape under the fluorescent lights…I swear, I had 17 chins there. At home, I only have 2.
I never know what to tip when I get my hair cut. When I used to go to the fancy salon years ago, and I got a huge discount because Hub’s company and this salon were part of this local barter program, I would always give the guy $15 or $20. I’m not sure at the cheapy place though. $3? $5? More? I have no freaking clue and it is majorly awk for me. Is there some sort of guide?
