This is the picture that I brought to the salon to show my hair stylist what I want my hair to look like. To explain, I really have never done this before because usually I just go to Great Clips and get the most simple haircut possible, #5 on the sides and the back blended to a short length on the top. So I was really out of my comfort zone here. But I've been wanting a longer hair style for some time now.
I actually shaved my head in a buzz cut about six months ago and it's been growing ever since then. So it was getting really shaggy and ugly. So I knew that I couldn't just go to Great Clips and ask them to take a look at the picture, that wouldn't fly. I needed a real salon that does men haircuts. This is what I found:
I went in a tried to get a cut as a walk in customer on a Saturday. That did not work, they are so busy! So I made an appointment for the following Saturday. I had to endure one more week of the shag. The Jagged Edge is a really cool place, though. It has a really hip atmosphere and the ambiance is really welcoming!
Remember, I'm feeling pretty dumb for wanting a haircut like the above picture. I know that happens all the time, but come on, that guy's a model and I'm...well, you know. I'm Lance that's always kept my hair short because I wouldn't know what else to do with it.
So I show the picture to Coco (spelling?) and she takes two seconds to look at it before she knows exactly what to do. Then she goes to work! She taught me exactly how to style it too! I walked out of there with a really cool hair style that I like and $50 worth of new product. Oh, and she even trimmed my eye brows! Were they really THAT bushy? I don't think so, but I think she knows what she's doing. :)
I've never rescheduled on site for my next haircut, but that day I did with Coco. That's how good of a job I thought she did. Thanks Coco and Jagged Edge!
