I'm not picky about my hair so I don't have a regular salon or hairdresser, but the girl who was available at noon did a great job. She took off four or five inches of length and then blew it out. I did it because I think it will be really difficult for me to get my hair cut in Japan (not being able to speak Japanese and all), but the masses appear to approve--there were lots of compliments today and even some hooting and hollering from the general (albeit probably drunk) public as I walked back to the office.
It made me realize that the last time I wore my hair down on a work day was sometime in May--four months ago!?!
