The New Math Haircut

September 16th, 2010 at 11:18 pm

Just a quick cutie. I went to the beauty shop to have my hair trimmed last week. I told the girl to take off "oh about an inch". Nod, nod. We were chatting, the hair was falling, and when it was all over, WOW, that was a lot of hair on the floor. Looked to me like way more than an inch. So, I went home, and Hubby looks at me and says "I thought you were only going to get a trim?" I told him I had only requested an inch or so off all around, he looked at me for a minute and says "It must be the new math." OMG! He's not always the quickest on the uptake, but sometimes he really spouts a zinger! I tease him about his work because he's always complaining about pipes cut wrong, ordering the wrong parts etc. (he works factory maintainence) Anybody in the later 40's or so, might remember back in the late 60's early 70's, some learned educator came out with "the new math". It was supposed to be an easier way to teach kids the math basics, they even had classes for the parents, so they could learn how to help their kids with homework. Well, it didn't take very many years, and it fell by the wayside, pretty much, math is math. So anytime that a lack of math skills becomes obvious, we blame the new math! All I can say is it's a good thing that hair grows everyday!

    Seems to happen to me every time I get a haircut. Hairdressers like to cut!

    That is truly the saving grace for a bad haircut (and I've had more than my fair share, alas), is that it leads to no permanent damage... you always have the insurance that your hair will grow back a little bit every day. Of course, that is also the thing that ruins a really great haircut, so it cuts both ways. =)

    I get the opposite when I go my stylist. She cuts it the exact same way no matter what. That would be great except the last two times I wanted something different.
    I've had too much cut off in the past by other stylist and that is so frustrating.
