Beauty Coach: Play Hair Salon on Wii

October 14, 2010 at 12:45 pm , by

The last time I played hair salon, I gave my Barbie a tragic bob. In retrospect, my technique was doomed from the start. Just picture it: an impatient seven-year-old yanking Barbie’s hair back with a rubber band and using safety scissors to slice through her ponytail. Needless to say, Ken soon lost interest in Barbie and so did my aspirations for professional hair styling.

When I heard about Redken‘s Busy Scissors, $20, a new hairstyling game for Nintendo Wii and DS, I got to wondering whether things would have ended differently with Barbie if I had practiced some basic styling skills first. This box art alone makes me want to give her some blunt bangs.

In the game, you shampoo, cut, color, perm and style the heads of a demanding Hollywood clientele to advance your career. It sounds a both fun and exhausting, right?

Now I’m dying to pull a Quantum Leap. You know, I’ll play the game for a couple of few days and get my confidence back up. Then I’ll get my hands on a Barbie and nice sharp scissors and finally give her a trim that she deserves. I just have a feeling Ken would appreciate it this time around.
