Ways To Celebrate Beautician’s Day

I just found out that Beautician’s Day happens every year on June 26th, and I’m really falling down on the job this year.

HolidayInsights.com states that Beautician’s Day is your chance to show your appreciation to those who make you look beautiful and stunning.

Houston, we have a problem.

Jenny Hansen Bed HeadMaybe it’s just because I work at home, but most days it’s a major deal for me to BRUSH my hair. And right now, with the hip rehab? I can’t brush my hair unless I put down my crutches (which ain’t happening) or the Hubs brings me the brush in bed, where I can do the blind hair-do, which looks like that stellar photo to the right.

However, in honor of my amazing beautician, Ashleigh, I vow to call on this special day and tell her she rocks. Maybe I’ll even make an appointment to give me something to look forward to as I tackle Cruella.

[Yes, that bitch and I are still tangling (6 hours a day). I’m plateaued at 65, but I plan to shoot for 70 today.]

Since supposedly Beautician’s Day extends to manicurists and such, I’ll have to call Lori and make an appointment with her too to buff up the toes. As you can see below, Lori knows toe splendor.

At the very least, I’ll go “all out” and brush my hair.

Since today is also Forgiveness Day, the gals have to give me a pass on the bed head and shaggy-looking toes. Tomorrow is Sunglasses Day, so perhaps I’ll put on some sunglasses, learn how to go down steps on my crutches and get those toes even shaggier out in the garden.

Do you celebrate any strange holidays? What about your hair? Do you brush it, or pretty much leave it be? Enquiring minds always want to know these things here at More Cowbell!

  1. I pretty much let my hair do whatever it wants to do. That’s why someone created scrunchies. I do brush my hair, usually before I go to bed and then just do the spray it and scrunch it thing in the morning.

    Don’t give up on Cruella – take that bitch down like the mighty warrior you are.

    Beautician’s Day? Oy. I’m in trouble. I just read a list of fashion no-nos and the one that hit me square between the eyes: Keeping your hairstyle the same forever. (That’s my paraphrase of course; it was something like “wearing your hair like you had it in high school…”) I guess there’s some wisdom in there somewhere, only I don’t want to change!

    I like the idea of calling my hairdresser just to thank her, only she’s not at work now. Maybe I’ll call tomorrow…

    Hope it gets easier to deal with your ‘do soon. Also, love the t-shirt. (I recognized it!)

      It was a grand year for NaNo t-shirts, wasn’t it? I didn’t like the one this last year (though of course I bought it). 🙂

      And I have essentially the same, or similar, hair that I’ve had forever. There are small changes, but it stays basically the same. And yes, I texted Ashleigh and told her she rocked.


  3. You can always let the hubs brush your hair and paint your toenails!
