Today I went and got my haircut. I've been on a mission in order to find a new place at Indy to get my hair done. I get my hair cut and colored, but I didn't want to spend a ton of money. One of my friends said she's spent $80 on a haircut before (!!). Since I used to pay twenty back home, that sounded like way too much for me!
The first place I went and tried was Mode salon.
It was a nice little salon, and the lady gave me a cute cut. When I went back and got highlights, she charged me extra for having thick hair. In the end, I was charged $30 more than I was originally quoted! It bothered me. When I told my friend Kat about it, she recommended Renee at Hairspray salon.
I liked Hairspray better! First off, they charged me the price they quoted me ($91 for a cut and partial highlights- cheaper than the first salon and about the same as home). Renee was also a lot faster than other my salon at home and Mode. My lady at home just got her own salon, and she didn't hire a receptionist. She kept on leaving my hair to answer the phone and ended up leaving my color on too long. It was awful. It took her 3 hours to do my hair, and she freaked out that my color would be too blonde. The other Indianapolis salon also took awhile. They didn't have a receptionist either, so I was worried the same thing would happen to me.
Second, Hairspray is an Aveda concept salon. Everything smells so good. The shampoo includes a complimentary scalp massage. While I was waiting for my color, I got a free hand massage. It was really fun. I am going to go back.
This all leaves me with one big question: How much do you tip your hairdresser?!?! I always feel like I tip too much or not enough!
My next post will be about the Liebster blog awards! I'll have to post some pictures of my haircut too. It's not too much different- I just love how much lighter my thick hair is after I have it cut. I'm looking forward to being able to blow dry it faster.

Work has been going well. This week I have been sick with a cold, so I've been sleeping all of the time! I'm starting to feel better, but I'm still not 100% Tomorrow I'm going back home to see my parents and my puppies!
I have been working off and on in the cancer center making chemo. I think they've gone out of their way to make me feel welcome there. I like it. There are just so many drugs that I know almost nothing about!
I just got my October schedule, and I'm off for Homecoming weekend and Halloween weekend. SCORE!
