17.07.2012 | 人人理髮

[Volume 7 Issue 7, #1478]
噚日去剪頭髮(係我每個月嘅事, 呵呵!!), 忽然間想起我哋嘅理髮「演變史」.. 就講返我自己啦, 小學三年班之前係阿媽一手包辦, 直到中三就去當年風靡一時嘅印度理髮店.. 之後開始愛靚, 就去高級少少嘅salon, 一直維持到出來社會工作頭兩年, 跟住就長期用返一位固定嘅髮型師.. 其實我覺得有位固定而又同自己夾得嚟嘅髮型師好重要, 就係培養出一種默契同信任, 所以咁耐以嚟, 依家呢個都係第二位咋.. 你個演變又係點呢?? :)
went for my haircut yesterday (it's my monthly thing, hehe!!) and out of a sudden i recalled how our hairdressing experience has "evolved" over time.. i'll talk about myself, before primary 3 my mum had her monopoly on my hair.. until form 3 in high school, i went to the then-very-common indian barber for my haircut.. later on, it was adolescence and bet we all took our appearance more seriously, hence i went to salons a tad little posher, and that kept on till the first few years of working life.. and finally, i started to have my own long-term hairstylist.. i actually think having your own hairstylist and one that works well with you is rather important, it's the trust and the synchronicity you have cultivated along the time, hence my current hairstylist is just my second hairstylist by far.. what's your evolution then?? :)

    4. Yan, your hubby is good and practical. Better save money and give Yan instead of pay to stylists! My idiot male friends could spend RM150 just for hair cut! They choose that London trained hair stylist from Vidal Sassoon school..... I see no glam or special since my friend already fugly looking! Muahahahaha....... Just kidding.
