Three Year Haircut...
It is not like me to post personal photos however this time I am. I have always been very happy with my hair and the way God created me. In my younger years I colored it everything from dark black to blond. I never bleached my hair so it remained in good condition. But after many years of Loreal I never achieved the Heather Locklear cute sexy look that Mr. C loved so much. As I aged I decided to grow it out and let the natural color show itself. I wore it far too short several times through the years and it really never was "me".
So about three years ago I just stopped getting it cut. This is the result. I have very thick and heavy hair.
Over the holidays into the new year Mr. C kept saying my hair was too fly-away. Yes, it had a lot of static with wind and coats in the cold. It made me start thinking that maybe it was time to get it cut. I even measured it to see if it was long enough for Locks of Love. Yes, however they don't want "grey" hair.
I dropped in to see my previous hair dresser (Marye) whom I always adored and she was very sweet. I made an appointment for the last day of February. I cannot believe how nervous I was. I studied hairstyles online and printed out lots of pictures. I dug through old photos of me and took them along too.
In the end this is me with my new haircut and style! I love it. In this photo my hair is still wet. My hairdresser was amazed at how great the condition of my hair was in after three years of only me tending to it. No split ends and not dried out frizz. Yay! So this is the cut with my naturally wavy/curly hair left to air dry. That is the secret to my good condition...I try to never blow dry or as they call it...blow fry my hair.
I can honestly say Marye did exactly what I wanted and what my hair needed. The longest she cut off was about six inches and the majority was about 2 inches in length cut off.
I am able to have my long hair and enjoy it. My mother had long hair for many many years. I can't say Mr. C was overwhelmed as he expected some fabulous hairstyle that just isn't me. I never spend time on my hair any more than I have to. High maintenance is not my style for anything.
Thank you for indulging me sharing something not involving fabric, beads, buttons, lace or fun stuff.
Today was gorgeous weather and we went for a walk along the water canal. Tomorrow is supposed to be more rain and I say yay! Our water canal is barely flowing with only a few inches and should be a few feet.
Enjoying friends and food and life. I love reading your comments and seeing what you are busy doing. Creative Bliss to all...
