Bad Haircuts 101

We pay for stupid comments more than others.

Take this dialogue last week for instance:

Hairstylist: First time nyo dito sir?

Me: Ah no. I tried the your other branch in Makati. (It was a pretty swanky salon. Damn, Im turning metrosexual) Actually I liked my hair the last time, which is why im trying this branch.

HS: Ah! Ok sir! *starts snipping away* Who did your hair the last time?

Me: Im sorry, I really forgot.

HS: Ah, was it Edmund? Vincent? *rattles off a number of names*

Me: Im sorry, I really cant recall.

HS: Was he gay? Maybe its Vince... he's the only gay there. *snips again*

Me: Yeah. I think he was gay... *pause* Wait... are you telling me there ARE straight male hairstylists?

HS: *volatile silence* I... *snip* am.. *snip, snip* not... *snip* GAY. *snip, snip, SNIP!*

-----

Needless to say, I now sport the absolutely worst haircut I've had in years. It feels like Wolverine minus the ruggedly animalistic appeal.

Thats it -- Im definitely adding Straight Male Hairstylists in my "People not to throw potshots at while utterly defenseless" list.

About Charles and Camilla? I think its great they're marrying. I mean, to actually go out in public with someone as un-Diana-like as Camilla and defend her in front of the whole British populace... it's gotta be love right?

Or as Jay Leno pointed out... maybe its only now that his eyesight got bad enough to want to marry her ;)

Soloflite, the stylist was GAY! CLOSETED but gay. Straight stylists wouldn't take offense cause the presumption comes with the business. A closeted homosexual would... Trust me. I've had talks with an effeminate guy (who doesn't admit to being gay) talking about how he doesn't understand why the raised pinky is such a big deal... "Please, people don't think I'm gay just cause my pinky is raised when I'm drinking a glass of wine..."... (oh dear)

Greetings From Mars...Some of the haircuts I have gotten in the past threw in a murderous rampage. But I guess haircuts do not matter if I just have some nice personality to go with it. That is, if I have one. More power to your cool blog.

rhapsody is right, your hairstylist is gay (in denial). :p

i hope your hair grows fast :D

Dude. Never mess with anyone who's holding a pair of scissors over your head. Hehe...

transience said...

quit ranting about the hair, dude. you've got personality. you could be bald and still make a killing. however, if that snippy-snippy poked you in the eye...well...

anyway, camilla is too ugly to be marketable. glad someone is finally enough of a git to put a leash on the bitch. hehehe. it must be monday. it must be.

Stylists, hair/fashion whatever, as long as they are stylists - gay or otherwise, you should never EVER mess with them! Hahahaha. Serves you right. :p

Well, at least it will grow back. Try to restrain yourself from saying anything when going to the dentist though. Haha.

By the way, Charles is no George Clooney either, so the boot fits.

the hair can grow back. you should be thankful you still have your ears on.
