My hair is taking over my every waking moment, and I suspect it has far greater ambitions. World domination is not to be ruled out.

Honestly, I have crap hair. It's going grey at an alarming rate. It's half curly, half frizzy. There's absolutely no hint of style, which is no surprise since I'm far too lazy to spend any time on the ragged mess - and why should I, when it's going to get all mussed and sweaty every time I go to work? I'm not even sure it's worth mentioning the skin issues. That'll end in tears. The point is that my hair has gotten out of hand. It's enormous and unwieldy and all kinds of horrible.

I need to find a decent, affordable salon. I need to suck it up and tell them I have mutant skin. I need to find a low-maintenance style that will suit my round, bland, moderately pleasant face.

Gird your loins, flist o' mine! I intend to capture a decent pic of the horror that is my hair at present that I might ask for your opinion/advice/commiseration.

Watch this space!

I think wild, out of control hair is one of the hottest things ever. Seriously.

I've been growing grey since I was 15. Right now I'm hooked on the Aveda dye - and there's an Aveda salon right down the street from me. My impression is that the owner (who is incredibly nice) is also really good with figuring out hair cuts, but I have no personal experience with it since I don't actually have my hair cut - I just lop off the ends when it gets annoyingly long.

I just had my hair done (first time I have set foot in a salon in YEARS) at NY Jungle in Tappan. Bit of a hike for you I know, but considering they put pink and purple bits in my hair and my hair has suffered no ill effects, praps we could meet up and make a day of it. I found them to be NYC quality without the NYC prices, plus they are also a day spa so they know about things like skin care. AND, their heat lamps are these flat warm things that hover round the top of your head and make you feel (for once) like you have a halo.

I love my salon, but it's in Nutley and that's probably way to far you. But it's an Aveda salon (color, products, etc) and I love it. Not really expensive. Wherever you go, ask for one of the experienced stylists since they are usually better at the "what should I do" than the less experienced. The flip side is that the more experience, the pricier the service, but if get a good cut, anyone level can keep it looking that way. I have the same getting mussed when sweaty issue and live by my flat iron...I use a smoothing product before straightening and it works to keep it somewhat under control. A good stylist will also be able to recommend something as well.

Your face may be round, but it is not bland and is more than pleasant. :P So there.

And hey - you need to find me a big ol' shot of the fingerless gloves you mentioned seeing on Being Human. I might have *just* the yarn... ;-)
