Today, I am thankful for Ellen Barkin's haircut.
Confession. I am a horrible hair snob. Regardless of how I'm feeling or how much money I have, I must have a stylish haircut. Fortunately, my current stylist, Dakota, has a flair for giving women of all ages trendy and sophisticated cuts. Although I am 50-something, I always leave the salon happily sporting a very contemporary (rather than matronly) look.
Now about Ellen Barkin. I immediately fell in love with the very chic, short bob that she wears in the movie, Ocean's Thirteen. It's actually a variation of my current haircut.
"Yes, it's possible," I muse. "I'll never look like her, but I can have her haircut."
So, this morning, Ms. Barkin's photo in hand, I went to my 10:15 haircut appointment with great expectations.
Fortunately, Dakota also loved the style and adapted it to suit me.
Perfect. I now wear one of my best ever haircuts.
Thank you, Dakota. Thank you, Ellen Barkin.
For this blessing, I am grateful.
