That's my name.
Don't wear it out.
Well it's my name according to about 2000 hairstylists.
"Hairstylists..? Did I hear that right..?"
Why yes, yes you did.
This weekend I worked a hair show.
"What?! you're a model?!"
Uhh.. not exactly.
Although it's so sweet of you to think so.
Ya know how everyone works those odd jobs at some point in their life?
Well, this weekend I worked one of those jobs.
I sold hair cutting shears.
Now lets remember that my experience is a little lacking.
Actually I have none, other than the fact that
at age four I cut my brothers hair.
It was a hack job.
I used the safety scissors with the plastic covering the blade.
I cut random chunks.
They were forced to buzz the rest off.
I did an excellent job.
If you're ever in need of a hair cut, hit me up.
I know absolutely nothing about what each different type of shears do.
I didn't even know they were called shears until two days ago.
I called them scissors.
So when I was forced to sell them to hairstylists my pitch went a little like this:
"I know they cut hair.
I know they're sharp.
I know they are shiny.
Wanna buy some?"
Well, kind of.
It went more like :
"These are pretty great.
You'll do a great job.
Why don't you try 'em out on the mannequin?
Wanna buy some?"
Essentially, I spent all weekend pretending I was a hairstylist.
I thought I failed miserably, but apparently not because
I was asked to freelance.
Had I agreed, that would include flying all over the country and selling products.
I politely declined even though I was pretty flattered.
But the best part..
My free hair products.
The booth next to the one I was working
sold all sorts of hair products and since I was working next to them,
I got some swag.
These bottles run about 30 bucks a pop.
So I'd say it's a win for me.
Plus look how cute that packaging is!
So if y'all ever need any tips on shears and/or hair products,
let me know. I can make up a reasonable answer for you.
