So somebody finally found the time to waltz in at Soiree Salon in White Plains to let go of her long, sexy curls. If they weren't screaming signs of dryness and damage, they would have been cheerfully donated to cancer patients for better use. As a walking endorser of digital perm for the past 4 years, I found it necessary to treat myself to a refreshing, chemical-free look. Now save your gasps and don't give me those wide eyes as if you were NOT informed here.

As soon as Ken, the hairstylist, heard my desired look, he went to great lengths to dissuade me from going pixie. My natural curls would demand extra time before I can head out ready for the public every single day. Aaaaaand, just like what everybody says, it won't work for my round face. Ok, fine.

When he was finally done, I was delighted with how the new hairdo provided a breather for my ever-hidden nape and how it made me look younger and wholesome. However, it poses a great challenge for someone who hardly knows how to use a hair dryer. It's me, not Ken.

Historically, my new hairdo looks impeccably fine on the first day. It's always a different story the following day. It happens to be a Monday and it's just right to kick off the work week healthy and right. Before I made an entrance in Quantum Cafe to try their vegan happy hour (every Mondays and Tuesdays only), I had to make a quick side trip in a nearby salon for blow dry.

How about you? When are you getting your haircut done? You know you want to!

♫♪ I almost cut my hair, it was happened just the other day ♪♪♫

♫♫ It was gettin' kinda long, I could've said it was in my way ♪♫♫

♪♫♪ But I didn't and I wonder why, I feel like letting my freak flag fly ♪♫♫♪

♫♪♪ And I feel like I owe it to someone ♪♫♪♪
