Rockin’ a bowl-cut

I have a list of things that I have to do before I leave.  Most are things like ensuring that all the paperwork was properly completed to transfer my RRSP/pension from my previous employer or figuring out what to do about filing my 2010 tax returns but there are also superficial things such as getting a haircut.  I may be pretty easy-going in a lot of ways but getting my haircut is a big deal.  Just to clarify, I’ll essentially try any cut/colour but its vital that its well done.  

The only way that a good cut can be guaranteed is to go to a good stylist.  I had one in Vancouver who did an amazing job with short hair and so I started by trying to hunt her down.  After some calling around, it turns out that she’s changed salons since I last saw her a couple of years ago.  Not a big deal as I managed to find out where she’s at now but was then was given the bad news that she’s on vacation.  Where I lucked out was that she happened to be in the salon when I called and after a quick chat, she gave me the name of another stylist who would do a good job.

Butterflies in check, I booked an appointment with the recommended stylist and went in with fingers crossed that all would go well.  When I walked into the salon all I was looking for was a trim and a severe thinning job.  I walked out with my style being modernized, bangs, and what the stylist told me was the in thing: a bowl-cut!  Yup, a bowl-cut.  I wasn’t sure what to think when it was all over and done with. 

I decided to give the cut a couple of days before passing judgement.  Now that a couple of days have gone by, I can honestly say that the style is growing on me…even the bangs.  Its cut really well and is low maintenance which I love.  It may have been unintentional but looks like I’ll have new hair for my new city!
