I went to get my hair cut today. Well, first it was just going to be a cut. An inch or so, shape it a little better than it is. But it was just too dark (even after I lightened it a few weeks ago) so I decided I needed highlights too. As he did the highlights, I flipped through the hair magazine and pointed out all of the “flippy cuts” that I really like. I finally picked one that was a bob but with flippy ends. I said I wanted it like that, just longer – closer to shoulder length.
The highlights turned out great.
The cut on the other hand … it’s more of a “shag” than a “bob”, with a flippy end section about an inch longer than the rest. It could be fixed by cutting that off to even it up – but then the whole thing would be close to chin length – not shoulder length like I wanted. In other words, it’s already an inch or more too short.
No, I probably won’t be posting pictures of it tonight. Maybe tomorrow – first I have to get used to it. It’s a good cut, but I’ve lost about 5″ of hair. Fortunately my hair grows fast, so getting back 2 or 3 of those inches shouldn’t take too long. But for now, I feel sort of scalped. Sure, it’s what I asked for – well, close to it. But I keep thinking I should have just gone with the original plan of cutting off an inch or two – not this! Oh well … it’s hair. It grows – and the color looks great!
