I have been wanting to get my hair cut for over a year now....
Before my appointment, on the way to the salon.
I have a photo that I've had in my phone forever and a day and I would look at it to imagine if I could picture my hair that short again but with an edgier feel. And then I saw Arielle's hair from Faintly Masculine and loved her cut as well. So on my trip to New York, I did it. I cut my hair. I was okay with it at first, I wasn't over the moon about it even though strangers would stop me on the street and tell me that they liked it and asked who did it. The stylist at the salon did an excellent job, she talked to me about products and how to achieve an awesome wash and go, which I was able to achieve once I made I back to Texas. But for some reason I didn't feel like me.
It's not the length that concerns me, I've had my hair shorter than this and loved it. I think I either need to get it cut shorter in the back and the sides and leave the front long like it is or let the back grow out a little longer. But until then, I'll be wearing my hair in protective styles (i.e. wigs/weaves) until I decide for sure what I want to do.
Look who I found on the subway! You're not supposed to take pics there but I
begged convinced the Port Authority Officer to please let me take a pic with my boo and she relented.
I'm a little bummed that I didn't love it but I figure it'll grow back fast or I'll just get it cut shorter. Has anyone else had this experience?
I think that I look like Spike Lee's sister, Joie. But at least she got to sleep with Denzel in Mo' Better Blues...
