Hair today, not gone tomorrow!!!

Thought my hair had reached the critical mass of boredom so, went to the salon for a new look. People are busy streaking, colouring and straightening. I hate colouring or streaking . So, the lady had no other option but to suggest that I perm it. (As I already have straight, may I also add silky hair?) Took the appointment and there I was sitting gleefully with the image of Kamal Sidhu conjured up on my mind. I was all set to have those lovely curls. Ask any lady who has cried over threading or waxing what motivates them to sit through the entire process? Beauty of course silly!! I am no different. I sat through the stinking chemicals. The lady applied some three four kinds of liquids, rolled my hair, blow dried it washed it, applied something again, washed it, blow dried it and God knows what? Sometimes it hurt too but when asked I replied, ”No, it is ok” Everything was ok as long as I could have THE look. After enduring all that and shelling out a bomb, Ladies and Gentlemen, teng tereng!!!!!

This is Medusa pounding the keyboard. The lady had said it is going to last for six months. I feel suicidal.

Kishore said...

The salon of the future should have a "preview" facility... :p

manuscrypts said...

yippee, now you'll feel so good after 6 months, when your hair is straight and silky again :)

claytonia vices said...

Maybe you can use this opportunity to go for a jazzy boy cut.

Parna said...

Mentor said...

Ggrrrrrrrr....

I wish if you wouldn't have done it !! straight long hair is different MADAM.

MMN said...

Heh.. People with straight hair want curls and those with curly hair wants straight. The grass is indeed greener on the other side. :D

I must say - Parlors are the best way of losing money as well as a pert of the identity.

And I am sure, U wouldn't be looking all that bad. No one can compete with Kamal Sidhu. No way!!! She's the best in looking bad.

Great goin..... Keep it up baby.

Mahesh Kokadwar said...

I'm sure it must not be looking that much bad
I think it's just you feeling bad may be because, still you are not looking like Kamal siddhu
:)

Arunima said...

@Mahesh: lol. perhaps, you are right. Me trying to look like Kamal Sidhu is like a Sardarji wishing to look like chinese. SOmehow, I hoped I would have the look by having the hair :-)

Phoenix Rises said...

Medusa look! :))
I've wavy hair and want to get it straightened. But am still a bit hesitant about the price and also what if my hair gets damaged???

Anonymous said...

Which colleague said that... he will gift u a comb.. the poetic way of saying it would have been

Yeh zulfen hein thumari yaa resham ka jaal....
Kitne khush naseeb hein ...

Kitne khush naseeb hein who choohe jisne katre tumhare baal.. ;)


sorry for this couldnt resist!!!!

@anonymous: I think the same colleague also said what you quoted.
