Did I pull a Britney?

Getting my hair cut/trimmed is one of my favorite things to do. What better way is there to spend an evening than chatting with a girlfriend (in my case, my hair lady is Tiffany who I met Sophomore year of college), getting your hair washed by someone else and walking out of the salon looking fabulous? Sounds pretty nice to me.

Last night I had the works done: cut, dye and eyebrow wax (I was looking like an amazon woman). As Tiffany is doing my weave, she gasps and says, 'Um, Natalie... what is this?" I say, "What is what?" She then points to the top of my head at a small chuck of hair that is only 1 inch long. WTF??? Where did my hair go? I scream and grab my hair. There is a small 1 inch square of hair that is completely gone. Tiffany didn't do it. She didn't have scissors in her hand. When did it happen, I haven't the slightest clue?? I have no idea if I burned it off with the now, not so trusting, CHI straightener or if some mean joke was played on me while I slept. Whatever happened, this is serious and I am deeply concerned for my well-being.

For the purposes of blogging, Tiffany and her husband graciously offered their services and took a picture:


Somewhere in the universe, is a big chuck of my hair. Personally, I would like it back. But until then, I now have my own sort of "rooster tail" thing going. Call me "Rooster" now - it might be the only thing I respond to.

Cock-a-doodle-hair-do! I blame Adam. He's bitter at his third-wheel status.

Natalie I feel your pain.... So funny!!! Each time after I have a baby I swear all my hair falls out and then grows back, and that is exactly what it looks like, except for all over my head!!! You make me laugh, with all your funny pictures to document on your blog.

There are many things in life I'm thankful for, but the main one has to be the fact that someone was there to document this mysterious missing hair chunk. Love it!

unreal.

I burned off a chunk of my hair once with a straightener.It looked like that, except is was bigger.

I can't wait to see the pictures when it grows out more!

Is that Tiffany from Gamma? I really liked her.

p.s. will you please email your address, i've got peters baby announcement that has been sitting with a stamp on it for weeks now!

Your blog is darling! It was so fun to look at and you look great! I lost a chunk of hair last year when I was in a rollerblading accident and the doctors shaved part of my head...so I feel your pain! Keep in touch!

I am in no way trying to one-up your rooster tail, but out of my own stupidity I wanted to have curly hair one day and so I doused a section og my long locks in hair spray(the aqua net kind), rolled it up in a brush and sat there. I think I watched an entire movie like that. When I decided my home-made curler was "done" I tried to unroll my hair from the brush but it wouldn't budge. I sat in my mom's closet sobbing...out of fear that I would have to shave my head and my mom would be pissed. Luckily a skilled pair of hands (mom to the rescue)and some sharp scissors freed my locks from the hair sprayed death trap.

I am so impressed with your courage and bravery through this hard time.

Natalie, love it that you still go to Tiff... I thought that she stopped doing hair when she had her baby. She is the best!
