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!!!
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…
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!
…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…
