Why O Why??...

They'r probably the only people in the world who have the power to make you feel a million bucks or plain shit....the power these people have is something that even they havent fully understood!

Even the biggest and baddest men in the world have to sit in front of them with their heads bent and have to be at their mercy!

Yes...am talking about the Hairdressers, stylists or barbers...as you may choose to call them!!!

I almost get sleepless night a day before and after I visit a parlour in Hong kong!!...I mean this place is suppposed to be a mecca for fashion in Asia....then why the heck cant I find a single good parlour out here?????????????

Last 3 years EVERYTIME...read EVERYTIME...I have gone to a parlour in Hong Kong, they have done everything possible to ensure that I step out of the parlour looking like "MOWGLI"!!

URRRGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I cant imagine why...why the local hairdressers have obsession to "flatten" your hair soo much and the concept of "Volume" in hair just doesnt seem to exist!(ok men this might be too technical for u..but nevertheless!)..They JUST....DONT...UNDERSTAND NON CHINESE HAIR!!..it sucks!
Yesterday despite my heart not wanting..I went to visit a so to say "highly recommended parlour" coz I desparately needed a cut (according to Hubby....who simply cant understand why any women would want hair longer than a boycut!!)..And needless to say...I am yet again .."MOWGLI" today.....

Only thing left to do is walk around in cheetah undies and jump around the banayan tree veins... singing..."Jungle Jungle Baat chali hai ..Pata chala hai..Chadi Pahan ke Phool khila Hai!"

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO here I come!

culture,look etc.varies country to country..but it does not mean that people should adopt other culture..i ahve never changed myself even sometime people tell why u not shave beard...i tell its ok..its my problem yaar...i think people should not change themselve (or change for good cause) if they do not wanted to be.:)

Hahaha.. Even I m quite fidgety abt my hair and haircuts.. And I never like what any hairdresser does to my hair! Ufff yeh musibat!

Hahahah hilarious. Excellent start and a wonderful description of the whole experience....

Well I think the intrinsic you actually look like a "Mowgli"... ;) So no matter whatever is the hair cut like... thats how you look every single time :)

Well Mowgli looked cute.. didnt he ;)

oh no. thats not good. hahahaha. DAMN! I'm so sorry. hair is everything for a woman and i know how you feel when someone botches it up, its like our womanhood is being taken away from us :|

i remember distinctly biting the hand of a fraud Chinese hairdresser, because she was cutting my hair all wrong. i screamed, bawled and wriggled around in that chair and she still didn't let go. so finally, i had to resort to violence. i JUST could not help it.

i still can't stand that stupid Chinese fraud parlor. I'm not taking my kids there EVER! i want them to have a much better childhood than i did. *sniffs*

Nitin:- Nooooo...I just dont like Shenaz aunty!!

Deep:- Yeah well..right now am looking for a jungle to hide in!

How;- No way!!...in this Mowgli look...!

Rakesh:- yes thats why am saying...making people happy about the way they look is a good cause and the hairdressers here shld therefore change their cutting style:-)

Prachi:- Am almost paranoid abt my hair..and now I have to act as if looking like MOWGLi is "in"!

I walk alone:- Ouch..u touched a soft chord!

gayatri:- well u atleast wanted to run..i wanted to make my hairdresser run!!

Vinay:- Thursday it is then

Sameera:- That was the original idea..but then hubby dear abso "hates" long hair..(yeah I told u I was married to a wierd guy)...so here I am...men i say!

Similar thing happened to me last week when I went for a haircut first time in this city...

Thankfully it was a nice exprerience...and the stylist did a good job !

And also with long hair good thing is you can go about as long as 6 months without a haircut which wouldnt be possible with you.....i guess..

Experimenting with salons isnt my cuppa tea..I'll prefer sticking to one place cz they know what you want.

At 9:18 PM, Blogger RADhika said...

LoLs... :) very funny!
but you know, i can understand your trauma, i am also very much sentimental about my hair...however bad curls they are, still ijust hate when the stylists make it even worse...

but don;t feel much bad abt it, you still are looking like some famous personality (though animated!) :))

Hi ,

I was reading ur blog posts and found some of them to be wow.. u write well.. Why don't you popularize it more.. ur posts on ur blog ‘Once upon a time....’ took my particular attention as some of them are interesting topics of mine too;

BTW I help out some ex-IIMA guys who with another batch mate run www.rambhai.com where you can post links to your most loved blog-posts. Rambhai was the chaiwala at IIMA and it is a site where users can themselves share links to blog posts etc and other can find and vote on them. The best make it to the homepage!

This way you can reach out to rambhai readers some of whom could become your ardent fans.. who knows.. :)

Cheers,

That was real funny! Just a thought, aren't there Indian parlours like in the US or UK? You may be able to locate a good hairdresser in one of 'em. I agree with you.. bad hair sucks :)

Chinese hair sucks...don't we all agree ! ;-) oh boy ! ;-)
