Well, I was ready for a drastic change...we are talking 10 inches of hair and a totally different style. I promised my sister in law that I would keep my hair long for the wedding, which was over on the 4th. I was swearing up and down that I was going to get it done on the 5th, but negative hubby, brought me down, so finally on the 7th I went and got the cut!
I walked into a salon I had never been to before, without an appointment, which I tend to do A LOT. It turned out that the owner of the salon was available to cut my hair. So, I hand him a picture, sit in the chair and close my eyes. He starts cutting and a few minutes into it says to me "Do you always come into strange salons, ask for a cut and close your eyes?" I looked at him and said yes, I do. He wanted to know why. I said to him:
1. If you were terrible at cutting hair, you wouldn't have been in business, with three shops, for 30 years.
2. If you do a terrible job, I will just put it up in a headband until it grows out.
3. I am convinced that you will do a great job. I asked the Universe for a wonderful new hair cut. I originally wanted to do it on Sunday, but it didn't work out, because the Universe wanted to bring him and I together for this task. He had a cancellation in his scheduled at the exact time that I needed. I walked in at a time where he had a cancellation. Simple as that. I told him that I pick most things the same way. I see a pair of jeans or a shirt or something that I am not sure I really want, I go home and think about it, if it is still there the next time I go, then "it was meant to be.". If not, then there are bigger and better things. I will buy a car the same way, I pick doctors the same way. If it is there , the car, the appointment, when I want it, then it was meant to be. If not, then I just keep moving on. I knew what the outcome was going to be, a great haircut that I was happy with and that made me feel good (I love the feel of my new shorter hair on the back of my neck), I had to wait for the Universe to provide it, and it did. He looked at me like I was crazy, but he did a great job cutting my hair, and he now has a new customer for the duration, and I have some one that I trust to do a great job!
