Second Life Fashion from ReadMeri | Gypsy

gypsy

A while ago, when I was a young, full of vim and vigour little Meri, I used to choose a hairdresser based often on how her hair looked and them plomp myself down in her chair and simply say ‘Make me look great’ or ‘Do something cool’ and she would.  I had some very short haircuts, some very crazy haircuts, some slightly arty haircuts, but I carried them all with the same sense of youth, freedom and devil-may-care delight.

Not any more… oh no. I had a very bad experience about 10 years ago where I asked a hairdresser to put me a wedge back into my bob so it graduated forwards and I kid you not, she made me look like Les Battersby from Coronation St.

I did tell her Janice. I said ‘Keep the length at the front but just graduate the back’

Since that time, I’ve been much more cautious. I’ve had several near misses with stylists getting carried away talking while their scissors worked and having to butt in and stop them chopping gaily away at my tresses. The result is that now, I never enjoy getting my hair cut and so have it done as rarely as possible. As it has been a year since it was last cut, I had it done yesterday, new hairdresser – and at home!

To say I felt it probably wasn’t going well was an understatement. She talked so much and so hard that when I tried to join in, in any way, she’d simply increase her volume til she drowned me out. I did not have high expectations of the haircut and kept putting my hand up my back to check that I could still feel it (I was going waist length to bra strap length).

I was delighted to find eventually that she’d done a good job. I can’t say I feel like a new woman cus I do feel a little naked with it being shorter than it was, but it’s okay. I’m not going to have to stay in and cry for a week.

Do you have any hairdresser horror stories?

About:

No problems with the hair I’m showing you today – it’s a dream haircut 🙂 RunAway’s May’s hair pack comes with several versions inside, but importantly, one that fits with Apple May Design’s May Hoodie and one you can wear with anything.

The Hairpack fullversion contains: Fitted in 3 different boobs sizes, Unfitted, Rigged for “May” dress (Maitreya. Belleza, Slink), Materials enable/disable via Hud, Colorhud, Omega Hairbase, Standard Avi Hairbase.

The dress itself by Apple May is also to die for. I adjusted my boob cleavage slightly because I felt they looked a bit too distant from each other, but this may have simply been my shape.

RealEvil have designed and made the gorgeously groovy Neve Booties for Winter Trend SL which opens tomorrow. The wedge boots come in an array of colours with HUD options for the studs, heel etc. and with fits for all the mesh bodies.

The scene is from the gypsy caravan in the new AAi Secret Garden which is due to open shortly, I’ll make sure you get the landmark when it does.

Here’s some extra pics, including a ‘well lit, no shit’ shot.

 

Finally, here’s my jigging for the rigging video…

  1. Me: Just crop a cm off. Very light trimming, not a cut.
    Lady: Ok like that?
    Me: Sure.
    /me feeling panick as I think she keeps cutting a cm off on the same trenses several time but it’s in the back & I can’t see so maybe I’m paranoid?
    Suddenly she comes to where I see what she does and she cuts 5 cms off. i.e. from shoulder length that it takes me forever to get to, to below ear length. I pick up a lock and say: That’s hardly a cm.
    Lady: Well now why did you have to go and pick that single one long lock then?
    Me: Cuz I didn’t have any lock that was 5 cms longer than the others?
    Lady: Well your hair needed it.
    /me cries for a week.

  2. I’m terrified to go and so relieved when there’s someone around to do it for me – even if they’re a beginner that’s fine, cuz my hair is too crazy curly for anyone to notice a lock that would be a tad shorter – just cut about a cm off straight and make me happy.

  3. Ok, so I don’t think I’ve had anything as bad as a Les Battersby do but I have had my bangs cut so short I looked like Mr. Spock and on more than one occasion I went in asking for a trim and ended up with most of my hair on the floor. Now, like you I wait many months or even years between cuts. My husband lovingly tells me I could be in the band Poison, or Warrant almost every morning when I wake with a big mane of 80’s rocker hair.

    1. Haha, we were obviously born to be wild Marge 😀 I wonder if hairdressers know the fear they instill in us? I did have a giggle thinking about you being Spock 😀

      1. Ok this is so late but…

        I ended up having to go to a wedding after the Spock do. Not the fancy part thankfully, just the casual reception afterward. So I put on my best (and only) Mr. Spock tee and went. 😀
