Finally Saw Francisco

I hadn't had a haircut since, oh, January or so. And then when we knew we'd be returning to the States, I wanted to forgo the easy miscommunication always involved with getting my hair cut in Ukraine and wait until I could see Francisco.

I called not long after we arrived back in the States. Unfortunately, Francisco was getting ready to go visit family in Peru. I had an appointment for the day he returned, but then he had flight trouble and so it was canceled.

The next appointment was delayed because of, well, getting settled in here. I had an appointment last Saturday and it was cancelled because of sickness. My hair was past the shaggy stage, but to the too-long-to-do-anything-with, not-long-enough-to-put-up stage. It was just not right. But I'm very loyal, and though I was REALLY ready for a haircut, I wanted to wait until he was available.

So this morning I got in to see Francisco! Here's a self-photo.

Cute! I'm the same way about a hairstylist in Tallahassee. Her name is Holly, and even when I lived in Japan, and now Hawaii, I have to get her to cut my hair when I go home. I already have an appointment with her in August when I go home. I can just say, "Cut it," and she somehow reads my mind and gives me a great cut. I just tolerate the ones I get here.

I've found one of the hardest things about moving is finding someone to cut my hair. Mine is short, too, similar to yours. Unfortunately, it grows out fast so a great cut never lasts long enough.

Who is this Fransisco of whom you speak? I've been looking for a new hairdresser, I think mine is on something half the time, and I'd kind of like people who are cutting my hair not to be loopy.
