When I left the house yesterday, my hair looked like this:
I've had long hair for over 4 years now and I was getting sick of it. It always got in my way, so I had to put it in a ponytail all the time. A long ponytail:
As you know I've been feeling blah lately and somehow this correlated with finally making a hair appointment . . . 9 months after my last haircut. Let's just say I'm no good at upkeep.
I told the guy I wanted to "chop it all off short" and he took a deep breath and went for it. And now I have cute new hair!
He cut over 5" off! When he was done he confessed that he expected me to panic when he started cutting and change my mind, but I didn't even flinch! I think there was as much hair left on the floor as there is now on my head. I feel about a pound lighter and am very happy with the cut! If you're in NYC and want a referral comment or email me and I'll tell you who I went to, he's a bargain and really good. He's very busy (of course!) so you have to wait for an appointment but I think it's worth it!
Next time I might go even shorter . . .
Knitting content tomorrow, I swear!
