Haircut, Part Deux

I just got back from Andrew's, and I’m pretty happy with my cut. He was fairly conservative about what he took off, and that’s always a good thing in my book. Of course, the real test will come in the morning, when I have to style it myself (not my forte). Andrew is also pretty expensive, but since I get my hair cut so infrequently, maybe that’s okay.

So, while I have your attention, let me tell you a little more about Andrew. He is Native American, and wears a long pony tail down his back. He owns his own shop, and has been doing hair for 25 years. He grew up in Farmington, New Mexico, and moved to Albuquerque 16 years ago. He has two daughters, and one of them will be a senior in high school this year. He’s taking her to Shiprock, New Mexico, this weekend to meet with a Navajo lady who will be making an authentic Navajo dress for her to graduate in. For her senior pictures they have already arranged for a photographer to do a shoot of her in her Navajo dress, at sunset, against the red cliffs of Jemez.

And all of that I learned in the short time it took Andrew to cut my hair!

Gotta love a new haircut. I myself decided just yesterday that I would like to grow my hair out for Locks of Love.

I haven't had long hair since high school and have wanted to grow it out for awhile, but lacked the motivation. This may be just what I need to do it. We'll see how it goes.

What a wonderful idea. Talk about being a blessing in someone's life! How long does it have to be? How long do you think it would take you to grow it out?
