Sexy As Fuck

by

Really, that about sums it up.

I went to Calvin’s new salon today for a blow out.  I got a blow out, a beautiful cut, and four lattes!  Good lord I am still zooming.

Mostly on the sexy ass reflection I keep catching of myself when I walk past a mirror.  Wow.  Nice freaking hair.

Calvin has been doing my hair for a few years now.  I am quite the lucky lady, tell you what.  I have gotten to see him grow and change as has my hair.

Some times I have had a cut that I was like, “hmm, where is he going with this?”  Especially when we were getting all crazy doing my hair for the AIDS Life Cycle ride last year.  I had a pink faux hawk with faded sides at one time.  I had purple, pink, magenta, highlights at another.

Then there was the “space hooker” cut that Calvin gave me along with, yes that’s correct, “space hooker” make up.  If you go on my facecrack page you will definitely get to see the evolution of many styles.

Oh, how about the mohawk with tail?  I got to have that one when he was over at Mercer St. in the Marina.  I tell you what, there are not a lot of women in the Marina sporting a mohawk or a tail; let alone both at the same time.  And just to add a little funky to it, it was a side tail.

I let Calvin do whatever he wanted to my hair.  I was working for a couple of families who are Burning Man people, they loved my crazy hair.  I also remember the double take that one of the dad’s did when he saw me with all my hair chopped off.  That was two years ago May.  I went from rather long fabulous curls with pretty blonde/gold highlights to short and crazy overnight.

It was fun.

The pink seven layer cake cut was probably my favorite.  It was all different shades of pink and he shaved my neck line up really, really high, it was the best feeling to run my fingers through, all that soft stubble on the back of my neck.  The little boy I was nannying at the time would want to pet my head all the time when I carried him, it was really adorable.  It was also a very sexy hair cut.

Where The Magic HappensWhat Else Is There To Add?Get Your Sexy On

a little sexually ambiguous. I remember being out one night after work doing what I do and this woman totally came up to me blushing and asked me out for coffee and said something about my hair, ran her fingers through it and giggled.

I did not know what to do, say, or how to react.

Fortunately we were interrupted by a friend who wanted to get my phone number for something other than a hot coffee date.

Thank God.

When the time came for me to say good-bye to Charlie and the June Bug I was almost ready to go back to “normal” hair.  I had Calvin dye it back to its normal shade of dark brown and give me a pretty pixie cut–just more appropriate for interviews, you know.

I started to get asked out by men again and I interviewed for my next position.

It’s one thing to be able to hide your tattoos when interviewing, it is quite the other to disguise a hot pink mohawk with magenta highlights.

The awesome thing about having a good friend do your hair, aside from the almost constant intravenous drip of lattes going into my system, is being able to totally relax in the chair.  I would go into an absolute zen meditative state.  Which was good when Calvin was first doing my hair as he would take a long time to work with it.  He knew I was game for just about anything and he would really craft some styles for me.

That and it was fun to go over to his house and jam out to music in his kitchen while he mixed colors and we would catch up at 10 o’clock at night while dying my hair it’s next vibrant shade of peacock.

I have never gotten so many comments and accolades on my hair in my life.  I have never gotten to be the only person in a pretty fiercely creative and unique  city with a specific hairstyle crafted just for me.  It has been a blast.

And now he’s opened his own salon and I got to go to it today for the first time.  And man, it’s gorgeous, clean lines, Italian influenced decor, best smelling bathroom and cleanest that I have ever been in a salon, and my friend, with scissors in hand doing what he does best, giving me another flat-out fabulous cut.

Perfect for a little reunion action.

Ha!
