The drama that is my hair!

A few weeks ago on my way home, I stopped at a hair shop (hair salon) to have my fringe trimmed. I never have to wait, and I quite like how the lady cuts it. It costs just 2,000 Won - approximately R14.

The last time I visited a hairdresser was in April when I was in South Africa. I've already blogged about what a disaster that was. I went into a mild/mini depression for the following 3 days (my family may argue that it was longer). Why was I so unhappy? It wasn't the cut I'd asked for, and I was given golden streaks - something I still shudder about when I think back to it. I had another dark colour over it to cover it up, but by now it's nearly all washed out and my hair is looking pretty light in colour. Light hair against my skin tone is not a look I like at all.

When I asked the lady to just trim my fringe like she always does, she pulled her face and asked where I'd cut my hair. I wanted to get out of there as quickly as I could. In my broken Korean I told her I'd had it cut when I was in South Africa. She said I should go back to her after it had grown out a bit. Little did she know that I am counting the days till I get home to have it treated, trimmed to a decent length and something that *I* approve of!

As I've blogged before, it's monsoon season here in Korea. The humidity is disgustingly sticky. And as always, under such weather conditions, my hair doesn't know how to behave! It's really easy and convenient for me to just tie / clip it up everyday. I hate having hair dangling in my eyes - nothing is more annoying.

The drama of my hair continues... till further notice!

I'm picky about who does my hair too. There were times when my hair was cut too short. There were times when my hair got caught in the blow dryer and extra hair got to be cut off!! I did find a good stylist now. I pay a bit more than I would normally but sometimes you pay for what you get.

@ Nicki ~ OMG - what an experience :( Having your hair get caught in the dryer? I always pay a LOT more for my hair. When it comes to skin and hair care, my mum and I go way out. Have to take care of it!
