As the result of a miser's attempt to get a cheaper haircut & color last week, I went to a new hairstylist that was half the price of my regular stylist (who I've been going to for years and adore). I was simply just being earnest in my attempt to be more budget conscious in 2011. The color turned out fine, but the cut was a long razored mess (which will remain undocumented and simply a bad memory) and so yesterday I went to my steady lady, Rory at Cowboys and Angels, and had her chop it all off. I'm quite happy with the results, but ironically I just spent a little more than I would have spent if I had just gone to her in the first place! My lesson learned for trying to cheap-out on my hair-- "never go to another stylist if you're happy with the one you've got!"
And thought I'd take this opportunity to show you my favorite bangle bracelet in the world bought at an antique faire years ago. It's got a buckle closure that I love and the name "Helen" etched onto it. They don't make 'em like this anymore, do they? I'm sure Helen would agree.
