Mother’s Day: JWB Blogger Ayushi Recounts School Days At Momma’s Salon

JWB took Mother’s Day to relive the memories of our childhood. Our team visited Tangerine – The Boutique Salon, which was to convert into a Momma’s Salon!
Surprisingly, after my mother finished experimenting with my hair, they were shiny and straight. The magic of mothers, right? Guess whose hair is already straight and shiny? Ayushi, of course!
Ayushi: What do you have in your bag, mom?
Ayushi was going to be helpless today, it was time for her mother to take things over. For all the times Ayushi had brought back a full tiffin box, having eaten Maggi noodles from her friend’s lunchbox, for all the dinners she had wasted, for all the times her wardrobe looked like a wasteland, this was the time for her mother’s vengeance!
Ayushi: My mother might as well take a pair of scissors and chop my hair off. My parents never liked long hair on me! I remember as a kid, whenever I visited a hairstylist with mum, dad would send us back saying that my hair isn’t short enough.
I let out a snort and assured Ayushi that there were no scissors around.
Me: This looks pretty cool, Ayushi.
Ayushi: I know!
Ayushi’s mom: Of course, it does! I’m your mother, not a dushman!
Me: Aunty, if I was her mother, I might as well call her nalayak?
Ayushi’s mom: That’s right! Nalayak!
We had a nice giggle before she switched to the next hair style.
Oh, my god! Her mother dug out some fancy hair pins from her bag and I think I knew what was coming next! The DeeDee pigtails that I talked about in my first article!
Ayushi was excited for this one. Her mother parted her hair and tied them into two pigtails. With wide, curious eyes, she looked into Tangerine’s straight out of Fairytale mirrors, trying to guess what her mom would do next.
Ayushi’s mom: Are you happy?
Her mother smiled and started working on a fish braid. Punjaban look, eh? Good thing Ayushi had long hair, that’s of course why the braid was able to find its volume.
Ayushi’s mother pinned up her fishtail with endless bobby pins (thanks, Tangerine!) and Ayushi was ready! Yay!
