Hair: A Cut, finallySunday, October 24, 2010
Okay, I'll let you in on a little secret: until Wednesday, I hadn't had a hair cut since May. Ugh. I know, it's really not the way to treat hair, especially hair that gets tortured the way mine does, but for whatever reason I just couldn't bring myself to get it cut. Finally it had gotten to the point were you could see the damage and my layers were no longer blending properly so I decided it was time to go in for a cut.
Now I know many ladies go to a salon that has staff that know how to cut and style hair in a vintage manner but let me state that I'm not that lucky nor can I afford to go somewhere that charges an arm and a leg for a cut, maybe someday. So I settle for something simple, a mall cut with walk in- walk out service. I don't mention I like to set my hair or that I'm interested in vintage style as this seems to be, nine times out of ten, confusing. I explain that I like lots of layers, that I wear my hair curly and I prefer a traditional cut, no razor. When the question of how the hair should be styled after the cut comes up, I've learned to just let the stylist do what she wants, which usually means straightening it. Usually I can work with whatever cut they give me but I can't imagine what a difference it would make getting my hair cut in a proper vintage style.
So this is what the stylist came up with this time:
Anyway, I was of course itching to try a more vintage style so I washed the straight out and did a nearly dry pin curl set.
