Hair -- Again
Ah, yes, the ever present quest for the perfect haircut. I have had short hair since I was 15 years old. I won't go into how long that has been -- it isn't important. However, when I initially cut my hair at 15, I cut it from shoulder length, lank, unhealthy, abused, teenage hair. I loved the short hair and only grew it out once, when I was expecting my son. Those prenatal vitamins are powerful things! For the majority of the time since the 15 year old haircut, I have cut my own hair. Sometimes it was good, sometimes not so much -- not a lot different than salon cuts. However, I got tired of having to clean up the mess in the bathroom and decided to find a salon and have been going ever since. That was about 10 years ago. I have been through a lot of styles in that 10 years and have sort of settled on a pixie.
It looks great for the first week. By the second week it is getting a bit raggedy. By week three it is out of control and by week four it doesn't even resemble the original cut. I really need it cut again after week 2. At $50 a pop that really seems like an overkill.
So, I am sitting here listening to the media reports on the flu and wondering if I could go back and cut my hair myself again. Since we are in the middle of a flu epidemic I am not crazy about going to the beauty shop as I have to go on a Saturday and it is usually very crowded.
I am also trying to figure out if I could cut it myself so it doesn't grow out so wonky. As I am running my fingers through my hair I am realizing that one side is really longer than the other. Maybe I should grow it out long and pin it up?
How about that news story this morning about the woman who gave up makeup for a year. She went to a barbershop for a haircut.
I don't know but the idea of $100 a month to get my haircut like a guy isn't making me feel too good or too smart. Must be another way.
