For example, I'll get darling high-lights and then when the roots are grown out by my ears I'll think, "Hmm, I really should do something about this." And then I want to do something about it. RIGHT THEN. Don't want to wait. Don't want to make an appointment. Don't want to schedule anything. Just want it fixed.
Which means that I've done some rash things in regards to my cranial covering. I've walked into salons and walked out with atrocious stylings all because I was too impatient to schedule an appointment with someone good. I've run to Walgreens and purchased hair dye and given myself some hum-dinger colorings. All because I was too cheap or busy to figure out who could fix my color woes.
But then my dearest friend Emalee Squire came into my life. We were mission companions. She was a stylist but she never made me feel bad about my bad haircut (Sister Dawnell Groberg, don't feel bad...you were not trained when you welded that blunt pair of scissors and cut my hair into a bob. And I claim full responsibility, I made you do it.) or my 2 inches of remaining high lights. She didn't say anything. She just loved me. And then one day we saw a girl get on the bus and her hair was so darling we both gasped. And then on P-Day Emalee made me into that girl. Then she did my hair for me every morning after that.
Bliss. That's what it was.
And for the past 6 months we've been living in the same blessed city, Emalee and I. She's shown up at my house with hair dye and scissors--and I never had to schedule an appointment. She just knew when my hair needed help. She made me beautiful.
Then she got married and moved to Idaho.
Which leaves me back where I started. Which explains why last night I dyed my hair dark reddish-brown. Which explains why I think I might go to Fantastic Sam's tomorrow evening with no appointment because the cowlick in the back of my hair is driving me insane.
And now a question:
If I were to become a normal person in regards to hair care, in Emalee's absence, and were to think ahead and make an appointment with someone who knows what they are doing, who should I call? Where should I go? Please include any pertinent information because if I'm too flighty to make an appointment you can bet I won't spend the time to track down a phone number or an address.
My hair and I thank you, most sincerely.
