I left work 15 min early to make it to my long awaited hair appointment. I was so excited and nervous. I haven't had a good hairstylist for a really long time. The last person i went to that i liked was in Missouri. He worked magic. Anyways. i went to the du bois studio in the downtown section of our little town. It was nice. The stylist (crystal) was amazing.
She listened and voiced an opinion and sort of steered me in the right direction. My appointment was at 4:15 and i wasn't out of there till almost 6. I really liked her... until i got to the cash register.

okay so before she started, she asked if i wanted her to price everything out. I told her no. because i figured i was going to spend around 100.00 for my hair (it had been over 6 months since i had it done). So in my rationalization 100.00 + dollars every 6 months isn't bad.

sooo i'm ooo'ing and ahhh'ing over my hair in the mirrors as i make my way to the register.
They're trying to convince me to buy their 'amazing' shampoos. And they really were amazing, so i asked how much my total was with out them....

::dramatic pause::

205.00!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FOR HAIR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
a small part of me died right then and there.
now i couldn't even enjoy my hair because i'm trying to come up with ways to tell my husband and justify my 205.00 head.

Now i love love love love love love love love my hair. She did an amazing job. and i do plan on going back to her. I have an appointment on Nov. 22nd to be correct. She's doing my hair for my sister-in-law's wedding.

but i'll be dammed sure i'll get a price first. DANG!
