Change is Good But Not For Hair
My hair has always been one of those bane-of-my-existence type things. I have to say that I really have beautiful hair and yet it's a total love-hate relationship. Usually it's about the time that I have it cut or try out a new style that I think, wow, I really loved my hair the way it was before, and I really hate it this way! I know some of you out there are nodding in wholehearted agreement. Bless you. But what is it about hair? You can do so much with it and yet, let's be honest, so little. It can be colored, streaked and highlighted; cut, trimmed or shaved. You can layer it, bob it, feather it; wear it in a pony tail, a chignon, braid it, "bump it", beehive it; curl it or straighten it. Really the possibilities are endless and yet, so many of us truly hate our hair and can't do much with it.
So here I am with a much shorter hairdo than I would like and not quite the look as the picture promised. I am regretting my rash decision for change and the "chop it off" directions I gave. My attempt to look chic, stylish and sophisticated didn't really translate and instead I have barely shoulder length hair that I can't even figure out which way to blow dry! Ugh! It reminds me of something my dad always said, "the difference between a good hair cut and a bad one is about two weeks." Hopefully he's right. If not, I guess look for me - I'll be the one wearing a hat.
