Once You're Gone You Can Never Come Back, When You're Out Of The Blue & Into The Black

We all know that I'm crazy picky about who does my hair. I've had some bad experiences with hair stylists (orange streaks? blonde blotches? Bleached roots? Blech.).

So when I found "the one" in St. Catharines when I lived there, I vowed to never let her go. Why? Because she listens to me, and she is awesome. I always leave happy. And even though I live in Toronto, I still go to St. Catharines to get my hair done. That's loyalty, folks.

My hair appointment over Christmas had to be cancelled, and I had a bit of panic because I was only there for a few days and couldn't re-schedule. "Waddya mean I have to find someone in Toronto? What if they cut all my hair off? What if they dye it the wrong colour? What if they're MEAN?" I've refrained from going to see anyone else in hopes that I'll make my way back to St. Catharines soon and let Sara work her hair magic.

Oh, hello roots.

Yeah. Don't judge me.

So let's call this a Public Service Announcement. Don't let bad hair happen to you... and don't make bad hair happen to others. To you awesome hair stylist wannabes - please. Apply to this. It's a scholarship to the Aveda Institute which means that we, your future customers, will know that yer not gonna screw up our hair and make us cry. Ya dig?

To win, just submit a video explaining (in an awesometastic way) why you are "Born to Style". Winners get the grand prize of full tuition at one of Aveda's top hair schools in Toronto, Calgary, Winnipeg, Vancouver and Victoria. There's also a celeb panel of judges, so maybe you can convince 'em to hire you. BAM.

In all seriousness, please win this. And make the world a better place, one hair follicle at a time.

Cuz that'd be just... uh, super.

Last day for submissions is March 31st. G'luck!

I once had to go into the hair salon and stand over the wife while the dummy cut her hair cuz he liked to try and make her like a boy. It made me look like an over-controlling asshole, but she also was afraid he was going to cut too much... Whatever, long hair is better. Deal with it.

I've had sooo many stylists cut way too much off. That's why I love Sara, she trims a TINY bit each time.

This is SUCH a chick post. I'm mad at myself for reading it.

Kris said...

I'm a chick.

But dude - you have hair. Bad hair makes less girls wanna touch you. So, this applies to you too!

Bill said...

I hate when I look nothing like I did when you went in. I prefer a haircut that doesn't look like I got my hair cut. Way to rock that Superman shirt..LOVE it!

I get my hair done at the Aveda school! They're so so good and I know what you mean about bad past experiences.

Kris said...

Bill - Same here, I don't want my hair to look cut! :)

Anon - I know a few people that go there & love it. Recommend anyone?

Love the action shots super woman. Maybe you should help someone you know win this contest?! You got pretty good odds. There are five prizes - win free tuition at any one of five different AVEDA schools, Toronto, Winnipeg, Calgary, Vancouver, Victoria.

I'm so glad I don't have to worry about stuff like this anymore. Just pull out the clippers for 5 minutes every two weeks and done.

Kris said...

Rob - I'm passing it along to my stylist friends for sure!

Keir - See, I just dunno if that'd work for me... :)

im beyond needing a hair stylist. ive ascended.

or receeded if im being honest.

Dave said...

A woman donning a superman tee is a definite cold-shower moment...

Almost-end of Superman 2 is one of the greatest movie moments IMHO.


Kris said...

ghost - Ascended works. It sounds like a superpower.

Dave - I need to re-watch the Superman movies. It's been awhile.

Hey there! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from
an established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog?
I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I'm thinking about making my
own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Cheers
