So Ms. Thang and I went to get our haircut tonight. It's been a while.. December 7th to be exact. Her hair has been growing out and needed some maintaining.. mine was getting a bit unruly and needed a little length cut off. At the rate of 1/2 an inch per month.. I should've asked for 1.5".. but it was a long day and my math-fu was off. You saw my hat photo from last week. I asked her to knock off 2 inches... keep the layers the way they were (long layers in the back) and don't angle it near my face. Somehow the only part of that request she got right.. was the don't angle it near my face. I have unruly hair. It's thick and curly. Not tight curly.. but if left to it's own devices and not having some length to pull it out and keep it in check.. it gets crazy.
It's now shoulder length. Definitely not what I asked for. Not what I envisioned when I left the house. You wouldn't mind.. but I get the same exact haircut EVERY time. I think it's time to find a new place. I might like it a bit better tomorrow when I've done it myself (she poofed it with the hairdryer. Umm.. hello.. you don't poof curly hair with a blow dryer. The Boy, being very diplomatic says he likes it, and it's my same hair just a bit shorter and it will grow out in time. I think it has just gotten much longer and I had gotten used to it being long.. because it hasn't been long like that in a while.. I tend to keep it kind of medium-ish. More "just past the shoulders" instead of "hitting the shoulders". Cuts down on the poof factor. I ran it through the usual "up styles" and it seems that it will all work out in the end.. I guess I just have to get used to it. Usually it's Ashley's hair they louse up.. but they did a nice job on hers for a change. I guess it was my time.
And no, I haven't a photo to share.
