So we did our barbering all week. I really am getting the hang of it. I finished my cut and it came out amazing. My teachers loved it and they want to keep my doll! LOL so I'm very happy :)


It actually snowed here on April 27th... wtf??? It was pretty crazy... it snowed all day. But it's gone now and it's nice weather again. Weird. This is a pic I took outside my apartment building the next morning before it all melted.

This week we started barbering. It is pretty hard because it's a lot different than hairdressing. You hold the scissors and comb pretty much the opposite way than you would normally hold it. So it's taking a bit of getting used to but I think I am getting the hang of it. It is very good to know how to do both men and women so I want to do this well.

Curly Hair

We tried to curl my hair again yesterday in class. It came out really nice. I have only curled my hair once not too long ago, so curly hair is really weird and different for me because my hair is always straight. My hair doesn't take curls  really well though so it is hard and a few hours later the curls began coming out on their own. I woke up this morning and like there's like barely any curl left so it's pretty sad. I guess I'm gonna straighten it out because it looks stupid with like weird wavy things in it that used to be curls.

Lady gaga tixxx!!!

Got my tickets for Lady GaGa in the mail so I'm all ready to go now!

Make Up

Today we had a lady come to our class to show us a bit about doing make up because she is offering a make up course for any of us who are interested. I thought it was pretty cool, but I don't think I will take the make up course because it is too expensive and I don't know if I would really use it... but who knows. And all the products are very expensive too, even the brushes you use to apply them can be around $50-$150 per brush and you need a lot of them... the girl had like hundreds of brushes! Anyways I am telling myself that once I get established as a hairdresser and start making money maybe I will think about taking the make up course because it is good to know a lot.

Today's Work

Today I made $10 doing a wash and blow dry at school... so I'm pretty happy. I know it's not a lot of money but it's the thought that counts. The lady gave me a $5 tip! So that's pretty cool, and the other $5 was has of the blow dry money because you get to keep half of what you do.
I also applied bleach to the roots of my teacher's client because he wants me to practice but he said I didn't do a good job after so I was pissed off but I mean last time I did that client, I did all the work and she doesn't even give me a tip and gives him all the money... so I mean yeah I should care and want to do a good job but at the same time a part of me doesn't care because why should I do all of his work for him while he gets the money and doesn't give me any... so yeah I mean it's not like I did a bad job intentionally. I did my best and apparently he didn't like it so that's too bad... better luck next time I guess.

Today's Hairdressing

This is what I did in class today. We were experimenting with fashion colors so I was trying out purple. It's really hard to see in the pix but I added in purple to my dolls and it came out really nice.

Lady GaGa Concert 2010

June 28th, 2010 I will be attending Lady GaGa's concert when she comes to the Bell Centre here in Montreal. I bought my tickets last saturday. I was waiting by the computer for them to go on sale because they were to go on sale at 10am... well the nice seats were way too expensive ($175 each) and the bad seats which I had last time were $85 (I paid $49 for them last concert and they were terrible!) so I picked floor tickets, which is really cool but I am not entirely thrilled about it because I am really really short. Well I am gonna try to get right in front of the stange but I will probably be attacked by an angry mob of people.... anyways I went out and bought a pair of 6 inch platform shoes just to wear for the occasion. I hope they will help and I hope they are comfortable enough to stand in for the duration of the concert! We'll see... I really want to stand at the front of the stage to I can touch her leg lol.... I am pathetic....
