Following the wind of changes that are taking place in my life, I decided as I always do in these cases, to go to the hairdresser. I did not want a complete new hairstyle, but some highlights and a cut. She seemed to have understood me despite my basic German which completely lacks words like "highlights" or "shade". But she apparently did not. I wanted that Summer natural blonder look and my hair is now darker than it was! Gone are the natural blond highlights I got from the sun and the ocean! I know, it's a petty matter. But what can I say, it's disturbing to me. I hate it when a hairdresser does not do exactly what you pay him/her for.
