In general I’ve never been the type to care or take much time on my hair (okay, appearance in general). I wash, dry and go. No brushing. No combing. Every once in awhile I’ll sprtiz it up with some hairspray and once in a blue moon it’ll see some mousse. I don’t like to spend money on it (the cost of a haircut these days is highway robbery!) and typically don’t. Hence, it ends up growing ridiculously long and then I don’t know what to do with it. Hell forbid get it cut and have to “style” it, but I do and then it grows out again and so the vicious cycle goes. I’m the type of chick who doesn’t even know how to use a curling iron. Oh yes, in 7th grade, age 12, mom had to curl my hair every morning.
My hair has been bugging me lately because in my opinion it is too long, too thick and getting to be less and less manageable (a pain to wash, dry, hair everywhere, etc etc). I’ve been thinking about getting it chopped off like majorly up to the chin bobbed or even the underneath shaved like in the good old days (1990’s mohawk) but the masses gave their feedback and said they liked it long. So I decided since summer isn’t here and neither is spring for that matter (ie warm enough to have it crazy short), I’m not getting it cut-cut for a few months so I’ll just keep it long, get it trimmed, thinned and layered. Today was the day. You gotta be in the hair-cutting mood. I thought I was…
I don’t understand the first thing about cutting hair. I’ll admit that right now. I definitely don’t get how they layer it. I asked for one inch off and some long layers. And for it to be thinned out – everywhere. She began by spraying my hair with water. What’s Up With That? What happened to a shampoo and condition? By the way, I went at a neighborhood “salon” around the corner from my place. Asian owner – should that matter? I thought I made myself clear. She seemed like she understood English. Maybe with layers you have to cut off 4-5 inches… I guess my profile picture today is accurate length-wise for how it is looking now. Anyway, I don’t know why I’m so bent out of shape – it’s less long, thinned out and slightly layered. It will be more manageable blah blah blah. I guess it’s just annoying when you have an Expectation and even told the stylist what you wanted and then watched it get cut and cut and cut and you can’t say anything. – can I say anything? Yeah, NO.
I miss the good old days when my sister cut my hair. She came up with some crazy stuff but I always liked it! Unfortunately she doesn’t cut anymore. I cannot seem to find anyone I connect with on the cutting. I guess I need to keep looking…. Next!
