As of late, I'd been having a lot of headaches. Sometimes they would come randomly, sometimes I could attribute them to tension headaches after my longish hair was pulled. I finally decided it was time to go get it cut. My wonderfully sweet husband gave me an impromptu afternoon off one day to get it cut.
But....the problem with that is none of the reputable salons had any openings for a walkin. So I went to the "other" option. Usually, it's no problem. I have insanely easy hair - really, you'd have to be half blind, mute and paralyzed to mess it up. Usually.
So this is what it looked like before.
So now that I'm done defending myself, I'll tell you what happened. I went to the "other" place. Now silly me, I usually try to scope out the trendy looking young person - but not today. Oh well. Really. A layered bob, it can't be that hard.
Well, that is IF I actually say that. I know I did. I swear I did. I said chin length layered bob. Then I corrected myself and said, no slightly longer than chin length. Because from past experience, I know it will spring up and be shorted. Yes, I said longer than chin.
I'm sitting in the chair. Laughing at the silly boy beside me who is asking if I'm a boy or girl. Can't figure out why. Then I start paying attention to the hair stylist.....WAIT ---- this doesn't seem right. She's working way too high on the back of my head for this to be a bob......then she says "stacked"....okay, whatever that means........snip snip snip.....I hold my breath.
Deep breath...really, it doesn't matter. I know my hair grows faster than average, it will be okay. oh no, my husband!!!!!! Snip...snip...snip.....
NOOOO!!! As I watch the hair fall......Too late now though when I realize what she's doing. So I sit in peace and watch.
Then of course, the sides wouldn't come out even so snip more on this side...now more on that side....oh back to the first side...repeat...repeat....repeat.....
Finally it's done. At least my head feels lighter. And this is what I ended up with:
Now, I do really like shorter hair. I think it's so much more my personality, this was just a bit shorter than I wanted. But it grows. I can live with it!
And just because I want to play pretend that I'm special or something, I snapped this better shot (although - it's more my face than hair - but I like it more, so I'm sticking to my story).
