I am in desperate need of a hair color and my stylist (a.k.a. Jonny Boy/Hubby) is out of town! Thankfully he will be back Friday! Yippie! I can't wait. But I swear I have like two inches of new growth! Luckily I keep my hair pretty close to it's natural color so that I don't have to worry about these type of things! When I was back in the states, working in the salon, we did my hair every month on the dot. So I could do all sorts of crazy colors. Now moving to Germany, that's a different story! Especially since I haven't found a real hairstylist yet that I actually trust with my hair. Surprisingly Jonny is great! I've taugh him a lot and now he puts color on like a champ. He should be my apprentice and then we could open up a salon together hahaha ya right!

Then he'd be doing this to people!
(Excuse the terrifying picture of me)

Get this gals..... he cuts my hair too........eeeeeek! I just hold my hair out in sections, between my fingers where it should be cut and he goes to town! He hasn't messed up once! It is totally better than me trying to cut my hair myself. The only thing I'm allowed to cut myself is my front layers and bangs. Anything else would be a disaster. Isn't it funny that I, being a hairstylist, let my husband cut my hair? You'd think I wouldn't let anyone touch my hair but a trained specialist! Aw well, its just hair! and he does better than some stylists I know!

I'll have to put up pics of his job well done over the weekend! You'll see how awesome he does ;)

Anyway...... only a couple more days and I'll have my guy back! Sooo looking forward to it! I grabbed his birthday gift today and think he'll be super happy with it! I meant to get it before he left but I had such a hard time shopping for him. Men are sometimes really difficult to birthday shop for. I'm sure men think the same about women ;)

Hope everyone has a great day!

That's so cool. I'd be terrified if I let my husband anywhere near my hair. I also don't see him agree to it.
I have my hair done once a month.

What did you get him??

Well you know, the German ladies dye their hair ridiculous colors, so if you messed up you'd just fit right in :)

Have you seen the old women with purple hair? Seriously. purple. on like a 60 year old.

Once I get my apprenticeship wrapped up, I'm opening a rival salon in the kitchen!

Love the picture! My mom is a hair dresser and growing up she would have me cut her hair. So funny!

That one time I happened to be in OKC with Kristen and you did my hair....that was the best! Then you had to go and move. ;)

You are so talented and do a great job. That's great that Jon can help you with your hair. Wow!

I know you miss him and will be so glad when Fri. comes. I can't wait to see what you got him for his bday. Guys are hard to buy for. Girls are easy...there's always jewelry, perfume, purses, shoes, clothes, flowers, household gadgets, concerts & theater tickets...on and on could go. ;)

Have a good day!

That's so awesome that your boy can cut your hair. That would make my life so much easier. I am so picky! :)

Thanx for the comment! You gotta keep humor in all situations :) I love that your husband does your hair...if I let my boyfriend at mine....oh man....I shudder to think the results.

What a good husband you have.. if I publicly stated that hubby ever helped me with my hair, we would deny it to his death bed!!

April said...

How ironic!! Can't beat the convenience. I have been meaning to tell you that I love your hair!! So you guys do a great job on it. So what did you get him? I am horrible at bday gifts for my husband.
Hope you have a great day!

That's so cool that you let him cut your hair! Ryan's been trying for years to teach me how to do a fade on him(being a hair stylist, I'm assuming you know what I'm talking about) and I simply refuse...I can barely do my own hair and he's so picky that I know he'd hate it!

I finally got my blogging tag done that you sent me. I didn't follow the rules completely, but hey....I put pictures! :)
Talk ao ya later!


the post wouldn't have been the same without the picture! :)
