Have you ever had a $40 haircut?

Alright, most of you know that Jojo has done hair for quite a while now. She is really good at her trade and those of you who have your hair cut by her know that she is very meticulous and makes sure that she has cut your hair the way you would like. Some of her clients through years have been more picky than others, Jo never minds this and always cuts hair to please. Of all the the picky people we have ever known, when it comes to hair cuts Jojo is the most picky person on earth. Even when she has had a haircut she loved she always has to chop at it here and there to tweak it a little bit and make it her own. Since we have been in PR, chopping at it here and there is quite the under statement. As you scroll down through the pictures try to control your laughter, and I have included some fun Puerto Rican facts. Maybe that will help explain why Jojo's hair ended up with savage looking trim! Also, keep in mind that Jojo went and asked the stylist for an A-line bob. (Those of you who don't know what that is, let me give you clue...it is not anything like these pictures!!!)

"Tourism is an important component of Puerto Rican economy supplying an approximate $1.8 billion. In 1999, an estimated 5 million tourists visited the island, most from the U.S. Nearly a third of these are cruise ship passengers." Perhaps the gentleman cutting Jojo's hair was thinking about his upcoming cruise...instead of cutting hair.

In PR, the Jedi religion is the 2nd most dominant religion on the island. This salon was attempting to convert Jo by making her a padwan learner, you can tell by this extra lock of hair the stylist left behind in hopes of her being her path along the Force. Hopefully, she never turns to the Dark-Side and seeks revenge for this awful haircut.

PR manufactures rum, lots and lots of rum. Jack Sparrow has a beach house here next to the rum factory. Perhaps, Jo's stylist had been nipping the rum bottle at Jack's house prior to his appointment?

PR measures fuel using the metric system, so you have to times whatever numbers you see on the sign by 4 to figure out how much you are paying per gallon. Maybe it's just me, but in centimeters or inches I think it is safe to say that Jo's hair is not looking even at all, considering that one side completely curls underneath her chin!

We did want to say thank-you to our friend Sarah who helped to try and fix Jojo's hair. She might have been nervous at the beginning of the task, but lets be honest, could it get any worse? I think I could have duck taped Hudson's eyes shut gave him some scissors and still came out with a better finished product than the salon! Also, this morning Jo was trying to still and some finishing touches and in the end, she still has a manageable haircut. Maybe, ending up with a fix to this hair cut is the real testament to Jojo's talent! She had a lot of comments that her new haircut looked nice at church today, her only response was, "Thank-you," with a smile.

Haha! I got the real story at church =) Honestly I would have NEVER guessed your hair looked like that yesterday! It looks so CUTE now. I love it! I honestly can't believe someone could do that to your hair...and I can't believe you left the salon with it looking like that! I would have FREAKED out! And I'm not sure if I would have paid the $40. You're a better woman than I am ;-)

Holy cow Jojo!!! I can't believe what this so called stylist did to you. You seem as though you took it well though. If you look at the picture showing off the back, you'll notice two A looking holes. Maybe that's what this person thought was an A-line bob. I had a similar experience this past week with my hair. I wanted an a-line as well. The lady only spoke Italian and German. Which meant that I couldn't really explain what I wanted. Let's just say, I have the shortest hair I have ever had. I think we're a lot a like though because I just blew it off. It will always grow back hu? I'm sure your hair looks great now. I want to see pictures.

Oh man, that bites!! I think I would have just sat in the chair with amazement, thinking did he really just cut my hair like this. You need to post the after shots. I am sure it looks great! You’re definitely a patient women!

Missy&Jake said...

Jessica said...

That is so crazy. The PR facts were hilarious.

Your boys are darling. They could be Gerber celebs.

Miki said...

Where's the real "after" shot? I have to say that I had tears coming out of my eyes--mostly from laughing so hard. Give it a month or so, then this will be the funniest story ever!

Em and Ken said...

That is so funny! I can't wait to see the end result! You are very talented with hair!

Jackie Orbivenhouserstich said...

Holy cow! Ok so if you turned upside down did it look like an A-line bob?

You sure fixed it cute. Good job!

Oh my gosh Jojo I can't believe that. Wow if we ever doubted oursleves, we shouldn't have. I have never seen such a horrible haircut. Unbelievable. It sucks that you can't just do your own, but that short is really hard to do yourself. You better wait till your next Utah vacation.haha. Love the post. At least it is a fun story to tell.
