I finally got tired of my hair. I "try to grow it out", but that lasts until the hair starts falling in my face when I bend over. Plus, when it is long I only wear it in ponytails, and I go 3-4 days between showers because I don't have to do my hair... Yuck! So I made an appointment on base and said "chop it off!" I even showed her some pictures of the general idea, I have had enough short cuts that I know what works with my face. And I don't mind short. Really short. Like, not even over my ears kind of short. I like to spike the back and stuff...
I told her to have some fun with it, because it is curly which hides a multitude of bad haircut sins, and because it is just hair and it will grow back! So she did. Hurray, a stylist that doesn't mind playing with hair. Who does a haircut based on what would look good on the client, and not just what she likes to do. I am very pleased. I don't know what Mark thinks, but I have kind of past the point where I do my hair for him. I am the one that has to deal with it. And he is usually pretty sweet about the short hair. He is happy if I am happy, because when I feel good about myself, I am less crabby with everyone. And I always get lots of compliments with the short hair, which is nice.
It felt so good to chop it all off, very freeing. I will be cooler now, which is great because it got up to 105 last summer. And it will cut my morning routine time down by a good 10 minutes, because it will dry so much faster. She even paid attention to how the hair curl pattern lays. Which will make it so much easier for me to get the hair to cooperate.
Sorry I am rambling, but I am just so glad I got it done. I am a short hair person. And after I style it tomorrow I will take some pics, and probably update my profile shot.
