Here we are, having fun in Indiana, and on top of that, I got to get my haircut at a beauty shop for the first time in my life! Since the day I first needed a haircut Mom has always done it for me, at home. In the bathroom. Outside. And, yes, over the trash can too. It's been the same for the other girls too. So imagine our excitement when we first came up with a plan to visit our great Aunt Ginger's real beauty shop!
Getting excited to do new things with hair must run in the family. After two great aunts + one mom that went to beauty school + one grandmother that can do just about anything with hair must have ruined us.
What made it extra fun was that our Nanny and Aunt Ginger had just re-done the beauty shop — let's just say it's gorgeous. (We wish we would have gotten more pictures….) Complete with a darling round table for goodies. And, of course, before Aunt Gin started cutting we had to eat some yummies and chat. (Plus see all the neat things they'd been doing to the rest of the house!)
Mom was the shampooer…. we were so excited to get to have our hair shampooed in a real shampoo bowl! See, we are easily amused.
Apphia got some bangs and a trim, I got some layers (especially on the front), Abigail got some slight layering at the bottom, and Abiah got a trim.
While we were getting our hair done we chatted about this and that, sipped Coke, and asked Aunt Ginger some hair questions. You all know how I feel about a proper hair poof, right? Well, I just had to ask Aunt Gin if she had any techniques for getting a really good one. Oh yes, she said… in fact, she could guarantee that she could make my hair poof. Above are the results. I was just thrilled! Imagine a real poof! Aunt Ginger told us that in the early 70s when she would go see our Paps and his band perform she would wear her hair poofed high with a big bow right in front of the poof (the bow matched her dress, naturally)… how cute is that?
Our first beauty shop experience was just perfect. We hope we can do it again next time! Thanks, Aunt Ginger, for everything!
