Day 6: New hair, new doppelgänger?Posted: November 22, 2011
I got a hair cut today. Just an off-the-cuff thing after Super Cuts entered my vision this morning while chatting to a colleague at the bus stop opposite Shepherd’s Bush station. So on my way home, I popped in. Why not? Although I must admit I have never been to any branch of Super Cuts before because I have always been a little unsure of its self-proclaimed expertise. But fed-up with my borderline mullet, I thought I’d give Super Cuts a chance. Super.
What followed was probably one of the most stressful hair cuts of my life. My Hungarian hairdresser, although lovely, spoke barely a word of English. (Not so super). I was living on my nerves and ‘Reduce the heavy?’ (Reducing the weight of my hair got blank doe-eyed Bambi stares and ‘I’m sorry…’) But I felt sorry for her. Even more so as nearly every other hairdresser chipped in (course I wanted them to as well, staring at my short flat fluff upon my head) to translate and share their thoughts, hands and products.
And then it occurred to me (
you sound like Carrie Bradshaw, you fool) a new hair style probably means a new doppelgänger. But does a new crop increase or diminish my chances of finding my doppelgänger? One thing is for sure: Lauren – aka best contender yet who will be appearing on the blog soon – and I have been in touch today. And sadly, although there are definitely some facial similarities between us, I don’t think she’s The One. (We haven’t got the same hair cut for starters…)
