Oprah Controls My Life

Oprah just had a special on about getting a haircut. She made it sound magical. It sounds life changing. I suspect that every hairstylist in the country is getting bombarded with phone calls right now because that's how it works with Oprah. She likes a book, it sells multi-million copies. She raves about a bra or a pair of jeans: SOLD OUT. Now, she says people should take a look at their hair. And we, en masse, do. I am an impulse haircutter, too. If I don't do it tomorrow, I might not do it at all. But when the moment strikes me, I might just cut it all off. Yikes.

And Oprah says, "Get a haircut." So, I want to. She showed how you can look younger, fresher, better. Me too?

Am I bold? Am I brave? Do I actually need a haircut? If I do get a haircut, what will I do? Can Oprah's people come by and help me out?

Hey lady - I found you! Maybe we can keep up with each other this way...I've given into peer pressure and started a blog. We can be blog buddies! Seriously, I hope you and G-baby and Lou are doing great.

I, too, am an impulse Cutter. My chosen method of madness is to walk into a trendy/chic hair place, pick the stylist whose hair I like the most, tell them a bit about me (I'm kinda spunky!)and what I do (opera singer means no purple streaks, for instance), and then tell them to do whatever they want. I have really good, healthy hair, and the stylists love my willingness to be a guinea pig, so they all try their darndest to give me a cut that is sleek, stylish, spunky, and yet serious enough for the stuffed shirts under whom I commit myself. So far, so good. It's an adventure, at least:)

That was a good oprah! Had I not had a haircut the day before, I definately would have made an appointment with my stylist ASAP. Though it would be nice if Oprah would send her peeps out to us not in the studio audience...it could happen.

I have an excellent stylist I can recommend, if you need one!

All you long haired people and your hair cut willy nilly-ness. Us short haired folks must be much more regimented about such things.
