Going to the hairdressers


Shall I change my hair style? It’s been a while since I’ve had my haircut, so it’s got much longer that it usually is. This gives me a nice new hair style opportunity and a blank canvas for my weekend visit to my favourite hairdresser, the Hair Salon Sheffield in Hillsborough.

It’s a tricky one changing hair style. I feel quite comfortable with my hair, but I always find that a change can have unexpected benefits, like when I finally gave the new Battlestar Galactica a go and found out it was actually better than the original after all.

I’ve had my shortish hair for years, but what else could I try? I’m not a big risk taker with hair and I’m not going crazy, and the horrible new retro Perms I’ve seen in the hipper parts of Sheffield make my physically sick.

I’ve been trying to take inspiration from the hairstyles of some of my favourite Sci Fi characters. A Princess Lea, Episode 1 hair style? My head is too big. Deana from The Next Generation? I’d have to have my hair made curly and I’m not keen on that kind of artificial treatment. Maybe even a blonde action hairstyle, ‘a la’ Starbuck (the 2000 girl hair not the 70s boy hair)? Imagine me blonde? I can’t see that somehow.

Anyway, I’ve got a sneaking feeling I’ll lose my nerve at the hairdressers on Saturday, and go for the usual haircut. I hope not, I hope I can be brave like when I first gave the remake of my favourite 70s Sci Fi show, Battlestar Galactica, a go. I guess only time will tell what my hair looks like on Monday when I’m back in my little office in deepest, geekland of Sheffield.
