All your hair are belong to me

Today I had a haircut. My hairdresser looked at my hair, picking up strands and running it through her fingers.

"Spring is coming," she said. "I think I'd like it a bit shorter."

"Whatever you like," I said.

I'm not sure whether it is just that she uses English with me and her English has certain idiosyncrasies, or whether she really thinks like this, but I must say I rather enjoy the way she talks as though my hair belongs to her.

Last Time I cut my hair I did it myself. I had it long and messy and it looked very untidy. I came back from one lesson and for some reason I was angry. Was it at myself or my student, or both? I took the scissors stood opposite the mirror and cut a long ten or fifteen cms. Then I started trimming it ocassionally. It doesn´t look really bad. It is tidier. And I ´ve decided never to die my white hair again unless some hot guy like say, George Clooney, asks me on a date. Why take care after all? I´m a middle aged working single woman. I don´t need to impress any but myself.

sorry this was a bit too long but I like both your written snapshots and your pictures.

I came across by chance looking for material for my classes.

Is it true that hair cuts in Japan cost more than the US? If I was laying down $60 a pop, I'd want the beautician to see my head as her own personal work of art, too!
