Hope your day is full of style

I just love being my own one stop shop for images to post. I took this photo yesterday while on that photowalk at lunch with a new flickr friend.

I have a thing about barber shops. And I find the coat and smock on these two gents (see, julochka, the twins' thing just gets deeper and more profound) to be très chic.

Today I have two photo shoots, one for pay (!) and one for the i live here: SF site, and then a meeting about another future photo shoot.

And tomorrow I do have an appointment that deals with hair as well (my hair, as I'm feeling desperate), and if the 'do goes horribly, horribly wrong then I'll need to put together a wardrobe of stirrup leggings and bright jackets with big shoulder pads in them.

Or, if the hair thing turns out super cute, then little ringlets and curls will be a factor. Enjoy your day! I'll miss you.

Hey Dude in the chair! Tell him to buzz it OFF!

Those are some really hilarious smocks. If both had been looking at you I'd say you're channeling D. Arbus.

Enjoyable photo.

Good luck on your new do and say "hello" to the sisters for me :)

Can't wait to see the new hair! I am currently living in my own self-induced hairtastrophe.

i still say don't go there on the perm. perms are like so 1987. you cannot go back to a decade you lived through and find the fashion to be good. it's not humanly possible.

run like the wind...

to the 20s or the 40s, they used a really hot poker to get their curls, didn't they? there could be merit in that.

I had to check again to see if you had said "I took this photo yesterday" because...only in SF would one see a balding longhair, neat and clean, getting those split ends trimmed...made me smile!

Funny, the shop could have come out of the 60's, as barber shops, not salons, are timeless.

These two figures look like they belong in another place, another time--very otherworldly.

Wow! This pic is pretty dang interesting! Again, wow! I know the new hair will be great. If not, I know a closet that has a pair of shoulder pads, you can borrow. ; )

That is a very freaky photo - talk about walking by at the perfect moment!

hope your shoots went well. there was no chance of outside shots today as the weather demons decided to stand on the roof and pour buckets of water over the entire landscape. love these shots.

congrats on the shoots! your work is always, to me, profound and original. as for the hair thing, i'm there with you, i finally mastered what i call "the Paltrow"--but it took some work, some wrestling, praying and a whole bunch of pampering...good luck and hope we get to see pics of new 'do.

Do you think that the man in the chair was saying, "Just a trim" or maybe "Short back and sides?"

That photo is pleasingly weird on so many levels.
