The Fearsomely Hip Hair Stylist Returns

I got my hair cut last week, and complimented my fearsomely hip hair stylist on how much I liked the previous cut. It had lasted well over three months, looking pretty good (especially with my indifferent styling technique) until the final few days. I passed along the praise from the makeup artist who had worked on me for the corporate video shoot a few weeks back, and Hip Stylist was very pleased.

As he worked, he explained that my cut, the graduated bob, was one of the most difficult to perform well. In addition, where Caucasian hair typically has a little wave that softens irregularities, Asian hair is so straight that it's unforgiving to an imprecise cut. It has to be perfect. I am unaccustomed to anyone talking about precision in the same sentence as my hair, given the two second prep time I give it in the morning, so it was highly interesting.

At the end of the cut, Hip Stylist was so pleased with his work that he took photographs. I agree, he did a great job.

I love it! That's the sort of hairstyle I always lust after, given that my hair is too curly to make such a sleek style possible.

But for the record, you'll always have waist-length hair with Goody barrettes holding back the sides in my mind. ;)

I believe I share your hair care regimen. But I enjoy it when my stylist is a little more ... attentive.

It looks great!
