Want a Haircut? A Scary Short Story by Tattered Rose
I know this sounds odd but I cut hair too.....OK, not professionally but I seem to love cutting hair and have been not only cutting my own hair for about 16 years but my husband's as well. *Gasp*
Back in Winnipeg, there were several young ladies who worked for me who, for some inexplicable reason, wanted me to cut their hair too....so I did. No precision cuts....but rather the shaggy, tousled kind of hair cut where imperfection is the desire.
C. told me that it was the best haircut she had ever had....I'm sure that has changed by now. After all, it's been years since she had one of "my" haircuts.
And B. has had one of "my" haircuts several times over the years since she worked with me at Tattered Rose.
So, yesterday while a customer was trying things on in the change room, I began to chop the locks off on one of the mannequin's wigs. Her hairstyle was outdated and I figured a shaggy blunt cut was the way to go....so I chopped and trimmed and this is the result (above) I think it looks rather cool in an urban-mess kinda way.....
Don't worry....you won't see a shingle hanging outside my shop any time soon that reads:
"Imperfect, Shaggy Haircuts.....available Here"
The red head gets a shaggy bob too.....
P.S. Looks better in person.
While on Facebook, I happened upon the image of Jerry Hall, famous for her long locks, with a new haircut, called a "lob" (long bob) I had no idea when I chopped off my mannequins' wigs that they would be in such chic company! (I think she looks WAY younger & more chic with her hair chopped off!)
