Spring is here and I am again faced with the challenge of where and how to get my hair cut. i've not found a hair stylist who can cut a feminine fade anywhere up here; not even at the natural hair and lock shops. Surprising, I know. Not one of the stylist I spoke with was adept at using the clippers. Knowing how to use clippers is a specialty within itself. And most stylist never learn because what woman wants to cut off all her hair? (I wore my hair shaved short in the late 80s, and was the only woman in the barber shop. Never had to wait.) Still, I checked out a few natural hair salons in Manhattan, but I was not into the excessive pricing; plus I prefer a small laid back atmosphere. So, off to Philadelphia I will go...Can't get there until May 2nd. Richard and I will celebrate, my best friend since high school, Leslie's birthday. The Big 5-0. Leslie will introduce me to her barber. Can't wait!
