A fond farewell!
With the weight gone, my hair's natural wave springs up a little. I didn't have any proper styling products on hand; nonetheless, it dried rather wavy with a lot less frizz than I expected. It sure behaves differently in Colorado's dry summer than it did back in Georgia's muggy nightmare.
The cut includes some long layers. The overall length is a couple inches longer than I'd originally had in mind. The stylist wanted to be a little more conservative on the first go, which totally makes sense. She can always cut it shorter and/or add more layers next time.
And there will be a next time with her. She was AWESOME. :D She was super friendly and very tolerant of my nonstop anxiety-induced babbling. Before she even picked up the scissors, she looked closely at the photos I brought in and we discussed my hair care and styling habits. Then she kept up communication during the cut to make sure I was getting what I wanted. She did a great job on the cut. Despite the cowlick I have in front, she got my bangs exactly right. :D
I am glad I got the cut. I've washed it twice since yesterday afternoon just for the novelty of having it dry naturally in less than five hours. :) I really like the option of wearing it wavy. There is just one problem -- I have to learn how to style it!
|What is going on with my face here? My left eye isn't THAT much higher than my right.|
For today, it's a messy ponytail. Not the height of style, but wow, it's nice to be able to get my hair up off my neck and back with just one little ponytail holder. Especially in the heat of summer!
Now I'm off to the store to find the right styling product for wavy hair. They do make such a thing, right? It's been years since I used anything but heat protection spray...
