During the 80's I lived in south Minneapolis, a hot bed for creative young hipsters. My art school was near the first hair school headed by the famous hairstylist Horst the founder of Aveda hair and beauty products. I was sitting in a cafe and a stylish young woman gave me her card and asked if I would like to be a model for a hair show? What did I have to lose except some hair.
At the salon they lined up all the models and Horst strolled by holding a clip board and looked at each of us and declared which cut he envisioned. At the time I had long hair which I wore in a bun on top of my head. He looked at me and declared, "short and blond"..........I thought, no way, I'm getting out of here. As everyone shuffled to the salon, I slipped quietly out a side door.
He was right, short hair was for me. A few years later I did cut my hair and I haven't looked back. Have you ever been given fashion or hair advice you couldn't imagine then come around to embrace it completely?
