Hangover Hairstyle

Kev gets it once a week.
I haven't had it since 1979.

Last week it was Tuesday when we walked over to Wetherspoons. Kev has his steak, I have my vegetarian pasta and we share a bottle of wine.

But things didn't go according to plan.

Kev's first bite of ribeye went down the wrong way!

He coughed, spluttered and had to retire to the gents. I was left alone pinching his chips and drinking the wine. When he returned he was still choking and (for possibly the first time since he was in mixed infants) was unable to touch a drop of drink. It occurred to me to be worried but I decided against it and carried on refilling my glass as he kept disappering and reappearing.

I woke on Wednesday to beautiful sunshine and a horrible throbbing hangover.

What a day to have an appointment at the hair dresser. However, after four cups of coffee and two
Anadin Extra® I ventured forth.

The haircut problem has been sorted for some time now. I make an appointment on Natalie's day off and the lovely Sue has me in and out in no time at all. She knows me now and sculpts the spiky dikey (above) to perfection.

However, I'd been growing it for 6 months and fancied a transformation.

Something like this - but with a jumper:

Sue sat me down and demanded to know why I had a hangover. She then felt the need to tell me in complicated intricate detail about every hangover she had suffered in the last 10 years .


Right she said - "That's done"

And this is my new hairstyle.

Yep, my hair does exactly the same thing if it's cut too short... I recommend lots of styling gunge.

That's a pouty little miss you found for us, Kaz. Mind you, she's probably cold; if you hadn't cropped the photo we might be able to tell.

Never mind all this girly haircut talk! What about poor Kev? Did you step over his choking body as you set off to comb your hair?!!!

Not since 1979.

Excellent indeed.
It's the only style that looks at its best first thing in the morning.

Well - actually - I've had that style (?) for a few years now and liked it.
See first thing in morning comment above.
I just fancied a change ... maybe next time.

Ask Z or Zig to come round with the clippers.

Neither the photo nor the hair was cropped by me.

Oh yes - Kev - you blokes don't half stick together.
I'll give him a ring to find out.
btw - the spiky dikey doesn't require the use of a comb - fingers suffice.

I hate going to the hairdressers.

Is the jumper still a prerequisite?

I like your hair cut and color. Very much so.

Scary stuff with Kev. Hope he made a prompt and complete recovery.

Betty cuts my hair. She never asks me if I'm going anywhere nice for my holidays because she knows we're not.

Our Wetherspoons is too rough.

You could never get a great style like that at Audrey Roberts' hair salon.

But they do make a good cuppa.

Oh Hai XL!

Thats The Thing With Hairdressers.The More Information you give them,the more they do as they please!

Give me the dentist any day.

For me definitely.
For the one with a pout - definitely not.

Kev will survive anything as long as he's in his natural habitat - i.e. the pub!

Our Wetherspoons is full of students getting pissed and using the free Wi-Fi.
But it's just across the road and it's cheap.

Have you noticed how - on Corrie - people just walk in one day and say - "Oh by the way I'm a hairdresser or a builder or a machinist or a car mechanic" and always get a job there and then on the street.

But they all know how to make a good cuppa.

I'm sure that's true - but this time I just couldn't manage to get a word in edgeways.

I do in fact have clippers and do everyone not running fast enough in one swoop - it's why you never see Himself or Freddie in the same room together. Then I go to Toni and Guys and spend the equivalent of the current budget deficit on looking like I've been dragged through a hedge backwards in my sleep.

I hate going to the hairdressers. I've had to find a new hairdresser and though I don't think he's brilliant he doesn't make a mess of it!!

the first time I was scared sh!tless coz it looked like he was cutting it way to short.

Oh can we have a non "cropped" pic. we need to see the style in its entirity

3:13 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

Ah Toni and Guy - I had a nasty experience there.
This young man asked me to 'trust him' - I did and I shouldn't have.
I had to pull myself through a hedge backwards to get back to being me.

Scared sh!tless seems to be not uncommon.
I wonder why confident people with excellent negotiating skills (like yourself .. ahem) should feel like this.
The pic has been cropped to protect the innocent - as they used to say.

When I saw the picture I thought it was going to be about 'Thisles'.. all least you have hair Kaz..

Congratulations on the success of your Gurkha campaign.

I'm glad you didn't think 'cactus'.
It feels soft - no gel needed.

I'm 'Absolutely Fabulous' aren't I?

Ok so the hairdresser didn't manage the slick bob - did she give you a jumper?

10:26 am  
Blogger Betty said...

Oh well, mine's Punk's Snot Dead, but bright red, so perhaps that's of some comfort to you. Things could be worse, eh?

Did you have a brush with static?
Or was your brush plugged into the mains supply?
I like it, but it's hard to tell wether it suits you just by looking at the picture.
I'll be polite and say it does.

Blast my comment dissapeared . I think I said it looks very staticy (If thats a word) and then I said something incredibly witty that I cant remember so we will just have to improvise
***plays sound of Music on the spoons with Miss Scarlet accompanying me on her washboard***

Blogger Old Wom Tigley said...

Kaz of course I meant a Golden Thisle... and not 'thisle do' ;O)

Hello Ms Lulu:
I'd prefer it if Slick Bob gave me a jumper.

Oh NO!
That does not fit my Betty image.
Bright Red - not even a tint of burgundy or aubergine?
Is it a similar hue to Mrs J Ross or more like Chris Evans?

Polite is new around here - and I could get used to it.

(laughs at Beast's incredibly witty comment that got lost) ... Has Ms Scarlett lost her sax?
Or perhaps she just wanted to share an intimate skiffle moment with Beast.

Oh the punishment.
