“If truth is beauty, how come no one has their hair done in the library?” Lily Tomlin
I’ve never enjoyed going to the beauty shop like most ladies do. I don’t like having my hair washed or messed with by someone else. So why do I feel so much better after having my hair fixed?
My natural hair color seems to be quickly disappearing. One of the students said, “Mrs. Claudia, your hair is a little bit gray.” I smiled. She had spoken kindly. “That’s because I’m old, sweetheart!” I knew it was time. Within a couple of days I was in my daughter’s shop taking care of the problem.
My hair is very thick. If I don’t have my hair cut often, my hair doubles its size and takes over my body. My daughter got her cosmetology license using the Thai language. I am so proud of her hard work. Another benefit is that she takes a good look at me from time to time and says, “Mom. We’ve got to do your hair.” Since I hate beauty shops, I really appreciate that she takes good care of me.
My hair has a life of its own. You can compare my hair to an untamed lion. Without a regular haircut, my hair takes on its own style. Believe me, it’s not a good one! Studies show that bad hair can ruin our day and put us in a bad mood. So for me, the quicker I get a hair cut and style, the better I feel.
