A Massage, Haircut, and Thai Coup Updates

While I love the occasional mani/pedi, every month I need a haircut. And not one to go Supercuts with what’s left of my hair, I’ve taken to following the seemingly official international NGO hairstylist around DC.

Donna is a master of the scissors, an artist with the electric razor, and more importantly, a gifted Thai masseuse. Before she goes all Edward Scissorhands on your mane, she gives you the most relaxing head, neck, and shoulder massage.

Today, like times before, I was putty in her hands as she cut my hair, the morning’s stress gone from my mind. My hair wasn’t all that was on Donna’s mind though. She kept answering her cell phone, which was very out of character for her usually quiet and modest manner.

Asking her what was up, I proceeded to get a play-by-play of today’s coup attempt in Thailand.

The Thai military is attempting to overthrow the government of Caretaker Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra and Donna had a direct family connection to all the action.

Oh, and if that massage + haircut sounds perfect, Thai government updates or not, do go see Donna @ Fusion Day Spa (formerly Today’s Look) at the corner of 17th and L Streets NW – (202)223-8182

    One of the most public personal episodes of sensual rapture, closer to a sexual nature than my midwest roots like to admit, transpired under the amazing fingers of a hairdresser from Plainview, Texas that always gave a super massage along with her cuts. I was eighteen and speechless. I’m sure I looked like a dog whose own was scratching that spot on his back that makes his back leg paw the air. To this day I remember her name, Shari. I don’t remember if she cut hair well. I don’t remember the name of the “salon.” Nor do I remember how much she charged, but I will forever remember one long head scratching, massaging, warm water cleansing event that has yet been matched. Yes, I admit it. I paid for follicle pleasure.
    Oh yeah, I ate Thai in Texas too. Not the same level of pleasure however.

    Wow! Nothing like an international city for some interesting experiences!
