This passed Monday I went where many a Man Repeller has gone before: to get my hair ombre’d. For those unfamiliar with this particular terminology, think of the hair treatment as a sort glorified way to frost your tips, tie dye your hair, add one more print to the equation that is your outfit. So, I went into the Bumble & Bumble hair salon downtown looking like this:
It was actually in a topknot but looking back in hindsight, ironically enough, I was better off running around town with hair that looks like this for maximum repelling potential.
The skittles are actually not a product placement. I was just hungry and since there’s no longer gelatin in skittles, I’ve been riding the candy train day and night, night and day.
At Bumble and Bumble, I was greeted by Zoe, the colorist, later to become my simultaneous heterolifemate and hero. I’d never had my hair colored before and soon learned Zoe had an affinity for popping hair cherries. Later referred to hairy cherries exclusively. Generally speaking, it was a crass day of sorts, which is right up my alley cat. As you can see, we had buttloads of fun. Those are real laughs, real ones, I tell ya.
