Today I was a bit overdue for a haircut. With all the swimming I’ve
been doing, it has become very damaged and quite blonde. Great Clips
is quite close to campus, and cheap as well. Basically, those are
the two most important factors when choosing where I get my haircut.
I’ve always had the attitude that regardless of who cuts my hair, it
will grow back.

I decided that today was as good a day as any to get a bit of my hair
chopped off, so I headed to Great Clips about 45 minutes before
closing time at 6:00. I was told to take a seat by the cosmetologist
with the naturally pink hair. Pink haired cosmetologists probably
should worry me somewhat, but I don’t scare easily. I sat down and
was asked how I wanted my hair cut. I asked for the usual ‘finger-
width’ on top and #3 on the sides.

To cut a long meandering story short, apparently the cosmetologist
had the skinniest fingers of anyone in this city. Most people
wouldn’t think that by looking at her hands, but it becomes pretty
apparent when she gives you a ‘finger-width’ haircut. Goodness, did
I EVER get my money’s worth! Of course it’ll grow back, but in the
mean time, I look like I just got back from Iraq.
