MJ Haircut Experience
Tuesday, June 28, 2011
If anyone could be at the right place at the right time…it was today!! So I get this urge for a hair cut at the salon in the building where I work. As I was waiting for my appointment, I hear "Who Is It". Okay…wow and then I hear "Give In To Me" I can hardly contain myself. I guess it shows. I am sorta grooving and texting my MJ BFF friend (that is 1/4th my age. ) My hairdresser Dominique (french salon) comes to me and says (I think that is what he said) "you like the music, are you a Michael Jackson fan?" I show him the "MJ in red Mission TII shirt" wallpaper on my phone!!! He grabs it and takes it to the other hairdresser Jeff to show him and we begin talking. Will You Be There is playing now, so I do the side hop with arms stretched to the side, You Know? I tell him I saw the Jacksons in 1984 Victory Tour. Jeff tells me he saw Michael Jackson twice-- History World Tour. I blurted out "IN THE GOLD SUIT?"…Yep he says where he comes out of the capsule. And then he begins to tell Me... (so surreal unknowingly, MY state of mind )... How he can't explain it, but when MJ passed he could not get him out of his mind. His voice is so unique and special. Yeah how he did the drums and all the parts with his voice and the beat box. I said the best part was Michael Jackson's message. Jeff said, " How could anyone believe he did those things when he loved children and gave to charities and just tried to do good. I mentioned how I hate it that the he was run out of this country unjustly by our medialoid and money grubbing trials. Jeff said, "yes it was all about the money." I found someone I could talk to that is in my same space (well almost, I still cry every day.) Jeff said a lot of people love MJ, they just don't admit it, when MJ passed there were throngs of people watching their tv in the salon outside the glass window.
You know, some people say they remember exactly where they were when they heard the news. I have never admitted this before. I don't remember exactly where I was when I heard MJ passed. It was not like I remember 911. For some reason, when I heard about Michael Jackson I thought "there they go again with their lies" I think my mind just blew it off as lies. I was wrong.
Anyway back to the salon. So I have been growing out this boy haircut…to get the length, coincidentally to about MJ's "do" in You are Not Alone" lol! It is a long process. Okay... cover up those 61 year old roots; wash the hair: put on some sort of cellophane or deep conditioning treatment…whatever… and it is time for the haircut trying to get it to "the bob" stage. And Whhhhaaatt??? "Dangerous" starts playing. Okay they put on the cd! Again! The haircut begins. Dominique says "SIT STILL!" Can't do it. They could be shaving me bald. Get a grip...Just grip the handles in the chair. And try to contain myself. Some other hairdresser on the other side giggles at me and sings "You Are Not Alone!" Okay somebody pinch me this Michael Jackson Hairdresser Experience has GOT to be a dream. People are bopping around the salon. It was totally amazing!
A totally amazing MJ haircut Experience. Thank you God! I needed that! It is June 28th, 2011.
