Got a hair cut today and I actually like it!
I got my hair cut today. I hate doing that because, as much as it needs it, I always hate the outcome. My bangs are too short, overall length too short, style looks the same no matter what I want it to look like, etc. And it isn't with just one stylist, it's with them all.
But my hair was damaged by a lunatic stylist who stripped it when highlighting it and I have needed to keep getting it trimmed to get rid of some frizz. I decided today just to have the darn stuff cut off and live with shorter hair rather than doing it in baby steps.
So off I went with butterflies in my belly. I showed the stylist a few pics but I already figured it didn't matter. I could show her a picture of Kate Middleton's hair and I would come out looking like Miley Cyrus. She started trimming and I got nervous. I needed about four inches cut to get rid of all the damage. That's so much...
But it's hair. It grows back. It actually can look better shorter if it isn't damaged. I gritted my teeth and let her do it. In the end, I liked what happened! The style is very similar to the pictures I had. I have long side swept bangs that can also be straight down, many layers that can be smoothed or made texturized and my hair is a couple of inches below my neckline. Not as short as I thought but still...eeek.
I am used to long hair and always get nervous when it is shorter. My husband likes my hair long but he knew this had to be done. Plus, it is MY hair after all.
Now I am going to wash it and see if I can actually recreate the style. If so, we have a winner on our hands, folks. If not, well, I will have to practice and see what looks best on me.
Sometimes a haircut can be a pick me up and, today, mine was. What a shock. That never happens!
