I get more comments about my hair than almost anything else.
It is actually quite amusing.
I was starting to get worried that when I cut it I was going to get a comment like Amy in Little Women, “Jo, how could you, your one beauty!”
Thank goodness I didn’t get anything like that…yet.
So, a few weeks ago I put up a silly collage on my business page asking people to vote for the hair cut I should get.
The collage was made up of photos of hairstyles I had found on Pinterest.
Here were the choices…
I brought the above photo to the salon and we talked about the choices.
I told her which cuts got the most votes.
The people on the business page voted for #6 and #4 the most.
I was actually up for it.
My last big cut was four years ago and it was this….
When I talked to my stylist she told me that my hair is so thick and heavy (it seriously is) that it would take a lot of thinning out to get my hair to look like #4 or #6.
The only other one I was really considering at that point was #3.
It probably doesn’t look like it from the collage photo but it was a big cut.
Not as big as the others I was considering but she did cut over 8 inches, layered it a ton and thinned it out.
I have to tell you that while I was getting my hair cut I got text after text either from friends or Instagram friends begging me not to cut my hair.
My stylist was like, “Who ARE these people?”
I told her just my awesome peeps with short hair:-)
So here is the after…..
Do I look like Jennifer Aniston?
I did have a stylist once tell me that even if she cut my hair like the photo I gave her…I would’t look like the actress.
Did you really think I was banking on that?
I was just hoping she had a woman go crazy town after a hair cut that didn’t make her look like Cindy Crawford or something and the stylist now just gave a blank FYI to everyone.
At least that is what I am telling myself.
I would like to say that the new cut may never look as awesome as it did right after the salon but that is why I am thankful for my curls on normal days.
What has been your worst cut?
When I was late high school my mom took me to her stylist.
That should have been the warning right there!
I watched in HORROR as she unwrapped my perm.
I HAD long hair.
As my mom is paying I am looking at her like, “LOOK AT MY HAIR…WHY ARE YOU PAYING THIS CRAZY WOMAN….I LOOK LIKE A POODLE!!!!!!!”
Or something like that.
My mom didn’t get my meaning through all my weird eye contact, proceeded to pay AND tip and we went to the car….
Where I proceeded to have a mental breakdown.
I believe there MAY have been some convulsing going on.
I believe the crying went on for hours and there MAY have been old photos brought out with the long hair.
Oh my gosh.
I am so scared of Maddy’s hormones and the crazy #$%@# things she will put ME through.
Mom, I am SOOO sorry!
So, so sorry.
You shouldn’t have paid that lady though.
