Best. Hairstyle. EVER.

Hands down, the best hairstyle Jeff was ever given in a salon in his life.  You’ve got to see it to believe it!






Over the weekend Jeff + I went to go get much needed haircuts at our Japanese salon.  We only get our hair cut at Japanese salons because frankly they always get it right + have been less expensive than so-so cuts we’ve gotten in the past that are twice the price.  It’s not like Jeff has baffling mystery hair – it’s thick, curly + sometimes frizzy, but most non-Japanese stylists freak out + never cut it right!

Our salon has a high turnover rate because they employ staff straight from Japan who are on work visas.  Thus, it’s like a rotating Japanese stylist wheel!  But it doesn’t matter, because they take meticulous notes about your hair on index cards (so Japanese!) + every different stylist is always exceptional!!!

I always bring reference photos for Jeff’s hair.  I bring Vincent Gallo’s pictures because he seems to have the same texture as Jeff’s.Vincent Gallo



















If you don’t know who Vincent Gallo is, he’s an actor/director/musician that mostly stars in indie films.  All the hip Japanese male hair stylists know who he is + give an enthusiastic thumbs up when I bring the picture!

They sat Jeff + I side by side as we were getting our cuts.  Jeff’s stylist looked really psyched to be working on Jeff’s hair + was really into it.  Cut, cut, cut.  Then, he busted out the hairdryer.  Usually, this is when they bring out the curls, but Jeff’s hair looked like…Lion

Poofy, voluminous + kind of straight.  Hmmmm, curious.

THEN, the stylist plugged in a CURLING IRON!!!!  Jeff + I both looked at each other like:

What the heck is going on???  Jeff’s stylist looked happy, working away, doing his magic.  Hum, hum, hum.  So self satisfied!

When we walked out I could not believe my eyes!!!  OMG it was too good to be true!!!  I could not stop laughing!  BWAHAHAHAA!!!!Hair Style - 1

I kept calling him Little Lord Fauntleroy.Hair Style - 2

I wanted to dress him up in a velvet suit, a cravat + give him a glass of white wine + do a photo shoot of him standing by a fancy mantle of a fireplace with maybe a greyhound lying at his feet!!!Hair Style - 3

What’s even better it that the sweet stylist told Jeff that if he has plans to go to a Christmas party, he needs to come to the salon to get his hair curled!Hair Style - 4  Yes!

Jeff looked like an Asian TV drama star!Takuya Kimura

I had to share Jeff’s hair amazingness photos with friends + my Korean buddy Debbie said it was as if this:Goo Joon Pyo

and this:Uncle Si

…had a baby they would produce Jeff.

We ran errands around town + that man confidently ROCKED that hairstyle ALL DAMN DAY!!!  It gave me a huge grin every time I looked at him.  There are a ton of Asians in Vancouver.  None of them batted an eye at Jeff’s styled do, but one older white guy at the bank saw Jeff walk in + went:

Such a classic reaction.

Don’t worry y’all, it’s a great cut + the stylist did an amazing job as usual.  I’m tempted to have Jeff go back + then I’ll stage that photo shoot like I said…

  6. ohmigosh, that really gave me a laugh! Of course Jeff’s stylist had to break out the curling iron, I mean you brought the picture of VG’s studied/unkempt hair, the stylist had to match it! I bet that stylist really wanted to tame that beard next, huh?

    • We need to fly Enid up there so she can lie languidly at Jeff’s feet during your photo shoot re-do.

      December 5, 2013
      • YES!!!! I was visualizing Enid when I was dreaming up the photo shoot!!!
