Today I went to the hair dressers. A place called Rojopelli and it was my first ever time getting my hair cut in a hair dressers, or anything in them at all. I was nervous and tripped over the seat. It was sad.When I told the women what I wanted she looked worried. I don’t know if it was because she had never shaved someone’s head before or shaved a girls hair before but she went and spoke quietly to the hair dresser. It didn’t help at all my nervousness.
I wasn’t nervous at all about the haircut as I knew exactly what I wanted and didn’t think any screw ups would be that horrible. Easily fixed with a death-hawk. I think she was worried that I would cry or something in reaction to my hair being shaven as I remember her saying, “I’m only cutting this little section of hair okay?” in an attempt to make me feel less nervous. I told her I wanted it larger. I guess I was nervous because I have horrible memories of my hair which I never EVER ever want to speak about. But also I haven’t left the house to do something other than school in a long time.
Anyway, it was shaved to the second lowest blade, I think it was called a number two and was three or four millimetres. I absolutely love it and it’s a lot easier to cover than I thought! Getting your head shaved feels very vibrational (hehe!) and afterwards I had a horrible migraine but that’s probably because I didn’t take my medication this morning.
Overall, today was pretty good. My mum and I, after going to the hair dressers went thrifting and I met some of my mums friends that gave me a lot of complements. I picked up quite a lot. We also went to place called Jamaican Blue which is a really nice coffee shop. Though the coffee was pretty average compared to the cakes.
