I'm usually one of those boring people who gets the same thing done always. Same cut. Same blond highlights. Same, same, same, same same. My biggest problem is I never know what to ask for!
This time was different though! I found a picture of a really cool hair colour combo a couple weeks ago. It was dark and light and red! I decided to be bold and go for it! So, I emailed it to my new hairdresser and told her I wanted to use it as our inspiration for my new do. She was up to the challenge and said we'd work it out at my appointment.
Turns out, my new hairdresser is awesome, and works wonders with colours! She completely covered my head in foils. I've NEVER had that many foils before. I felt like I was carrying around 20 extra pounds on my head, and that I should be able to pick up air-wave signals from all over the world!
That's the thing about getting your hair done... you go to look beautiful (hopefully!) in the end, but there's always that time in the middle where you look like some horrible creature from a different plant. And the hairdresser is always pretty and put together. And you're all ugly and outrageous looking sitting in the chair. And you're forced to stare at yourself for those 2+ hours in that huge mirror under the unforgiving light picking out every flaw that you have. At that moment right there, the self-esteem takes a bit of a hit.
But, if all goes according to plan, then the foils come off, and the scissors come out, and the hair starts to fly, and your a brand new you! Thankfully, that was my experience!
After the colours were in, she got out the razor thing and the scissors and went to work cutting terrifying looking amounts of hair off. I had to remind myself that she knew what she was doing, and that she probably wouldn't let me walk out of there with a mullet.
Luckily, I was right! She gave me the coolest haircut! Lots of layers. Lots of bulk gone. Lots of style! I feel like a new me!
So ladies, go get a new do! Even if you don't think you need one! Go get one! You will feel wonderful and refreshed, and like the goddess that you are! You will thank me, and so will your husband! Go ahead and get a couple new pairs of jeans that make your ass look fabulous while you're at it too! Maybe a couple new bras. Fall is going to be here before we know it! Might as well go into it looking and feeling your best!
