    I didn't take the opportunity to get my hair done before I left Vegas by Tyson, who was wonderful...and CHEAP.

    But, as my highlighted hair slipped into four colors, I had to take matters into my own hands. So, long gone are the highlights and I'm back to just a brunette. I even did my own haircut.

    I miss my highlights!!:2dissapointed:

    Major bummer. I say back to the salon with you! It always makes me feel good to get my hair done!

    Oh I love having my hair done. Don't do it often. The best is having someone wash my hair. Ahhhh heaven.

    Spoil yourself and get your hair done. Something along these lines should match the house (hehehehe). http://www.fashion-era.com/images/1950-2000/dusty.jpg

    My hair has been put on the back burner......I really miss the highlights! BUT, would never dare take matters into my own hands.....nope. I'll get back there when I can. Tyson was cheap huh? I'm guessing the $$$ is probably average all over....maybe not!?

    Beth....LOL....wow.... :)

    Perhaps you can sell enough loaves of bread to subsidize the cost of your highlights.

    Good idea, Star! Maybe the neighbors will become regular customers!

    Yeah, he was cheap!! $40 for 2 color and then highlights.

    I love the Dusty Springfield look. Hmmm....

    Don't go Dusty, Abbey. You are a few decades past that. lol

    Surely there is someone in that town who knows how to do something fancier than rollers....just don't ask your mother in law for a referral. :rofl:

    in my humble opinion
    This is not the place to save money. Here is what I have figured out:
    For us gals...here is the scoop, esp after a "certain" age:
    1. Keep your hair clean, grays covered (although a few ladies look nice with gray hair) and well styled. Find a great hair sylist!!!
    2. Do your best to stay at the proper weight (or close to it)
    3. Keep your skin clean and well moisturized.

    I've got some more on the list...but these are my top three.
    Notice what #1 is???? HAIR!

    If you see someone in town who has great hair color or cut, you can say you are new in town and wanted to find some places to consider getting your hair done. Write it down, etc. Then you can call up or stop by and find out how much they charge. Sometimes, if you find a really nice person...they wont mind if you cut it a little in between, etc. Hopefully, in time you will find someone who does a very good job who doesn't charge and arm and a leg. Wishing you well!

    May I put in a few plugs (no pun intended) for wigs! I have alopecia and have worn wigs for years. Even if you don't need to wear them, they're great for those bad hair days. ML

    That price for colour & highlights sounds great! Yes, I am taking the exchange rate into account...

    I'm a cheapskate. I colour my own hair, when I get to a point where I can't stand the roots. AND I do it in half-batches to save even more. It still looks just as good, but each pack of hair dye does two treatments, not one. That's what I get for not having a lot of hair...

    I count on sunlight to give me highlights.

    As for Vegas - we're casino virgins mostly. Whenever we've travelled around various parts of Australia husband & I have made a point of trying to at least put a toe in the door of each state's official casino. But frankly, those places really worry me. When we went to "Rocky Horror Show" last Sunday with easy child 2/difficult child 2, it was in one of the two theatres in the casino in Sydney. The place is designed to funnel the customers in; to get to almost ANYWHERE in the place, the shortest route is through the casino. Getting out again is not easy.

    I think I'd go into shock if I ever visited Vegas.

    I did get my hair cut (again) on Monday. husband hates it. although he says it's not looking quite so bad since it has settled down a bit. I'm still not sure if I like it - I go to a budget hairdresser, I get the cut that the hairdresser thinks I asked for and thinks will look good. If I don't like it when she's done, she keeps cutting until I like it or until I give up. I can never be sure of getting the same person each time, who won't remember how I like my hair cut anyway (because I wait six months between cuts!).

    Oh well, life is an adventure. At least I keep friends and family off balance. I'll have to bleach my hair, dye half of it hot pink and it will match the cut admirably.

    Just call me Cyndi Lauper.
