A Drink and a Haircut

Have I ever told you how much I love my hair dresser?

Being the best hair dresser around, she took a risk and opened her own day spa in this little town. It's simply gorgeous inside. She has six white leather pedicure chairs, six manicure stations, several tanning rooms, complete with a massage area in the back. It's beautiful. And always busy.

And the best part? She goes out of her way to accommodate her clients. She will come in early and stay late...and I am talking 11:00 p.m. late.

I put the kids to bed last Wednesday night and then headed off for my 8:00 p.m. appointment. Coincidentally my cousin showed up with her husband, who also had an appointment. Even better than that?

They brought cocktails!

Have I told you how much I love my cousin?

The four of us chatted, laughed, and drank vodka with cranberry juice while my hair dresser did her magic. I assumed I was her last appointment, but as we poured ourselves yet another drink, in walked her 9:00 appointment. I got a little nervous about the big bottle of vodka sitting on the counter until the 9:00 appt. announced, "My husband had to drop me off...I just had 2 big margaritas at dinner and couldn't drive!" Needless to say, she fit right in with us!

Two hours later, it felt a bit more like a bar than a salon. And I was slightly concerned about each drink my hair dresser took while cutting my hair, but I walked out with a super cute haircut and fresh highlights.


I can't wait for my next appointment!

Is 3:30 too early for vodka?

So darling!! My hairdresser just happens to be my best friend so we have some fun times too but I would be extremely nervous if she was drinking and doing my hair. You are a brave woman!

MUCH more fun than mine! I called her last Wednesday just to see if she could trim, and she fussed and said, "You always do this...call at the last minute." I said, "Honestly, it can wait." "NO," she said, "come at 4:50pm, but you are my last cut before the holidays."
I got there, she trimmed it, and I learned that there were two more "last cuts" before the holidays...

too cute!! my new salon offers wine:) in the day time...i did have half a glass once... and had the kids with me too.... but I WAS FINE!! seriously, i was fine:)

Blarney said...

Okay ~ here's the plan ... you come over to my house take down & put away all my Christmas decor ... we drink and relive the 'merry' then head out to your house so I can paint, have a few more merry drinks and finish off the weekend by heading over to your hairdresser for a fabulous spa evening. So far I think it's do-able if we skip the putting away of Christmas stuff and painting. ;D

I wish my hairdresser let me drink.

Too fun!
