The other day at the bus stop one of my new neighbors was asking all the other ladies about where we got our hair cut.
I didn’t say anything until she asked me directly.
Because I get my hair cut in Tampa.
Which wouldn’t really be that weird except I live just outside Washington D.C.
That is when it occurred to me that I might be a little strange. It didn’t seem like a big deal when I was going to visit my parents every couple of months. I would just make an appointment to get my haircut whenever I was home. The problem now is that I haven’t been to Florida since June and I don’t have any immediate plans to go there.
And I really need a haircut.
And I am terrified to get a new stylist.
I have no idea what my problem is. It isn’t as if I have a complicated style. I have a bob. I don’t even have bangs or anything. Really, all you need to be able to is cut in a straight line and not piss me off.
This has happened to me before. I lived in Orlando for three years and I drove to Ft. Lauderdale every 8 weeks to get my bangs trimmed. It is as if I have some weird Stockholm Syndrome type attachment to my stylists.
You know how they say that once your baby is finally born a lot of women develop a strange attachment towards their OB/GYN? It is sort of like that.
(I miss you Laura!)
Well, it is clear that I have issues, but I am going to have to do something about it. I am starting to look like some sort of dirty hippie and since I am in no position to fly Laura up here just to cut my hair I am going to have to find someone local.
Who has a stylist that they love in the Washington D.C. Metropolitan area?
