Yeah, it's crazy how much people want to charge for 10 minutes worth of work. It's one thing if you're getting something complicated done like layers or asymetrical shaping or a design shaved into your head, but a basic two inches off the bottom or a buzz cut shouldn't cost $20. It's just silly.

Those kinds of prices are what has made me wear my hair in non-styles all these years p.a.g. I used to have Janis Joplin type wavy-curly hair when I was younger. After years of blow-drying, wearing it to my waist (it looks great under my wedding veil ), and giving birth to twins it appears my hair structure has changed. I got it cut short-ish when our kids were around two and had practically straight hair! My MIL (a hairdresser) said it was likely wearing it long for so long and the hormonal changes during pregnancy "pulled" the curl out of my hair. I don't know what caused it but I'm not arguing. Even now, into my 60s, still wear it below the shoulders, but I do pull it up a lot.

Yes, it is ridiculous how much the hairdressers charge to just trim off a bit of hair...mine does too!

I have longish hair, just past my shoulders and I too have it straight and sleek

When I go for a trim, it is just off the ends and I have it layered around my face, that is it and yet they charge $40.00

It is the same with all the hairdressers around and if you go into the city, it just gets even more expensive!

A good sized snake for around here. It was probably 3' long and about 1" thick.
And a coyote grabbing the snack I left for it. I was expecting the fox again.

My poor Pierce (my one dog's name, I just don't call him Rhodesian Ridgeback ) is fixated on my shed every time he steps outside. He stands on my porch and stares like your Beagle, Beagle, does. There are squirrels and bunnies hanging out there all day long. And there used to be ground hogs. One of these days there's going to be one I don't see and he'll be off coursing it.

Do you have a detailed pic of that where you can see the bunnies better? That's one of those pictures there could be a caption with.
