Nearly every Monday, we go to the hairdresser. Mom has been going to Cindy for her hair for something like 15 years.
It used to be that Sundays were the day. She would go see Cindy, then have lunch at her favorite restaurant, Panache, which is in the same mall. Last fall it became Fridays, since my sister had that day off and could take her. Then sometime after I moved home, it became Mondays. Mondays are a particularly quiet day at Cindy’s, so it’s a good day to go. We often have the place to ourselves.
Mom, like a lot of older ladies has a pretty high maintenance hairdo. It’s permed and colored and must be curled and set at least once a week to keep looking good. It’s a multi-step process each week which begins with a shampoo. Then the hair is conditioned and rolled. She sits under the dryer for 20 minutes or so. Finally her hair is brushed and teased and sprayed into place.
