What is it about the heat that makes me want to get my head tidied up. Humidity plays havoc with this hair of mine, I guess is why. With that in mind I decided to get a professional cut. First Choice is a bargain hairdresser chain here so I figured why not give them a try. Whoever cut my hair couldn't do any worse than the job I do on it myself. I don't remember if I had a professional trim last year or not; I'm thinking it's been two years now.
Of course, those of you with nice straight hair won't understand what it is like to have a curly mop that as soon as a bit of humidity appears, every hair flies off in a different direction and decides to frizz up at the same time. Then hair spray with extra humidity control is my best friend.
So off I went and what a cut! The very young woman had my head practically shorn in five minutes. I think it is the shortest cut I've ever gotten but I like it. It is an excellent cut and she left just enough on the top for me to fool around with a little bit.
Here is a picture of me about three weeks after the shearing. Kind of hard to tell but my wings are gone...those especially frizzy ear flaps I was sporting on each side of my head.
I'm liking this enough that I might keep my hair clipped super short from now on. The daughters aka my fashion police, are getting used to it; thought it was too brief in the beginning but like the way it is growing out. And I am getting a little spoiled with how easy this is to take care of.
More time for stitching, right?
