A List - of hairdressers. (chronolgocal)

The Good Ship Bitsnbobs (this blog) has been listing dangerously to starboard recently. So, in the spirit of “if you can’t beat them join them up into a list," this month – August - i am listing. This is, sort of, explained here.

My mum.

Anne Salmon. She smelt of hair spray.

Jean Paul’s – well, the guy who worked there, he was English.

That place next to Garcia’s on the Portobello road, London. One time.

Somewhere in Fulham, maybe, one time.

Aline. In the street, often, she came on a bike. Once, in Amsterdam by chance.

Linda. She didn’t use a brush or a machine, she used her breath to sweep the loose hairs off  your neck.

Kai in Berlin – he was good. Made me look good, twice.

Someone in Hamburg. Once. In the basement.

Denise. Off and on for 20 years.

You jest!!

It's of very little worth unless you meet me and need to know why my haircut is so strange!

Vicki Hollett said...

I haven't met you, but I enjoyed the list and thought it was worth indeed.

popps said...

Ah. Vicki - if it created enjoyment then i accept the idea of worth.
I'm just surprised.
Especially that the melbourne hairdressers thought so!
