So, I finally got my hair chopped off. It usually takes me FOREVER to decide to do it and then I procrastinate because I hate spending the money, and there never seems to be any free time to get it done. My hair really needed a trim though. It was ratty and dry and I was starting to resemble something the proverbial cat had dragged in (through a hedge, backwards). I present you with Exhibit A :
…and most days I woke up like this : (Exhibit B)
So, I got it all cut off. Well, about 5 inches anyway.
Haircut 101 : Bobbed and Bouncy
I’m going to try and keep it short for a while and not just be slack and let it all grow back. That is what I normally do. I am starting to be aware of the fact that I am getting older and don’t want to be one of those women who keeps the same hairstyle for 50 years and ends up on a talk show having a makeover. Although the makeover bit would be pretty awesome, I just don’t really want to be one of those people. You know the ones I mean.
I need to dye my hair as the ghost of grey hair past is starting to show through again. Which sucks but is inevitable. At least I have less hair to dye now and will be able to get it done quicker and with minimal swearing (and dye all over the place).
How do you prefer your hair? Short or long, straight or wavy? I am lucky, I suppose, in that my hair is very thick and strong and wavy. But it does drive me nuts, because I am rubbish at doing anything with it. I have no skills in this department. Having it this shorter length means I have to be less lazy and not just tie it back but, by the same token, it is quicker to wash, looks ok if I just let it dry and do it’s own thing, and is definitely healthier. Now that the weather is getting cooler (woe is me), I have less need to tie it back anyway, and shorter-messy is better than longer-messy. I went to the beach on Monday night and even after being blown to bits by the wind, my hair looked ok. Windswept, rather than tornado-whipped, which is how it would normally respond.
Thanks for dropping by – may all your days be good hair days 🙂 And if you have any tips for “doing” your hair when you are completely useless at it, let me know.
