haircut: Ruppitsch-Ruppitsch FriseureYes, he did use a round-brush for a perfect fine-tuning with the scissors on the dry hair. Having worn my beanie over the last 24 hours, I am assured, this haircut does not need a round brush to look good. Actually that's the point where I distinguish a good hairstylist from a poor hairstylist: the very moment he picked up the round brush, he paused, looked at me and said "you are not going to need this, I just want to fine-tune the cut. You will just dry your hair and be done".
Ruppitsch knows what it takes to tame my hair: scissors and the boldness or should I call it dauntlessness? - to thin out the hair to such an extent, that my hair can fall in shape. Not all women are fans of thinning out the haircut. I used to loathe it when the hairstylist started reducing my hair with that special scissor, that cuts away half of the volume. My mother - with her love for back-combing - calls those hairstylists "hair-haters" because they would thin out the haircut, she thinks they envy the volume of our hair. If it's hair-envy, so be it, it's what my hair needs.
Too bad I did not take my camera with me, the chopped hair on the floor would have been worth some google-hits. (chopped hair on the floor and on capes turns out to be one of the top-hits for my blog. *gg*)
It has been 20 years since I first opened the door to that tiny salon for the first time and it has been 10 years since my last haircut at that salon. I want to write more about that salon and how it feels to return to the hairstylist that has been the first salon outside your home-district.
Hm, this update turns out to be not that short at all.
But not today. I need to get a rest, because tomorrow it's the day:
Tomorrow is photo-safari time with my younges niece. She does not really know what to expect and having scrapped half the evening I guess I have a plan. Lets hope for friendly weather!
Now lets see what you have to say. I mean I have been teasing you with my hair-issues far too long and intense for you to remain quiet now that I arrived at my final destination.
In case you wonder why this posting lacks excitement: I AM really happy with the new haircut. The reason why this posting might not exactly express my feelings, is the 4-hour-hike up AND around the Leopoldsberg earlier today and a little lack of sleep (speaking of which ...).
For your information: We did not have to leave Vienna to walk this hike. The whole trail was within the limits of the city of Vienna. You just have to love this city.
I am tired! Good night xo
PS: Please excuse me for not showing my face this time, but after an face turned downwards on the massage bed, my face is a mess.
