Bouncy curls . . .

I have bouncy girls on my head. Whoops, Freudian slip. I actually have bouncy CURLS on my head.

I usually get my hair trimmed at the Aveda Institute by the students there, collectively referred to by the neighborhood as the "Aveda Girls" (yes, some of them are actually boys, but the collective term makes sense, trust me). I go for luck of the draw and get a different person cutting my hair every time. They're all fine. No bad or shoddy haircuts so far, in all these years, and that's pretty good for $12 a pop. Plus you get a nice scalp massage and stuff.

My hairstyle is rather boring to cut, so I let them go wild with the styling. See, in their studies, they have to do a quota of various hairstyles. So I go when I have plenty of time, and tell them to style it how they want to. It's kind of fun. And it's not remotely as permanent as a haircut, so I don't care.

Today's Aveda Girl: Mandy, Student Stylist #65328.
Haircut: inch off, blunt cut, center part
Styling: Figure 8 curls.
Products used: She listed them for me, but frankly I don't give a damn. Though I always choose "relaxing" over "energizing" in thescalp masage oils.
Long hair handling: Good. Didn't have to stand up for haircut htis time, knew how to section and brush long hair.
Standout moment: She stroked my ears when she did the scalp massage.
Recommended: Yes. But they're all good.

The other amusing thing about the Aveda school? I typeset and lay out all their printed items at my work. And I get free shampoo as thankyous when I do. If you click on "Service Menu" on the above link, it takes you to a PDF I made.

Oooooh. I love scalp massages. I used to love getting those when I'd go get my hair cut. Then I found the joys of the razor and haven't looked back. :)
So how do you like the styling? :)
