So I got my hair cut today.
Big deal, right? Well, I'm known for going serious lengths of time between haircuts. As in, I can usually donate to Locks of Love once I get around to a trim. :) With three kids, a day job, and the writing, regular haircuts fall by the wayside. I go for classic, no-layer, easy to maintain looks that can survive a long time between cuts.
This time, though, was different. I'm going to my class reunion next week and wanted something that had some style to it, something more than my usual "put it up in a ponytail and call it good" look.
And so far, I hate it.
There's nothing actually wrong with the cut. The stylist did exactly what I asked her to do. I just realized, after leaving the salon, that I'm not that person anymore. The cut doesn't fit me.
It's not hideous. Actually, it's a classic mid-jaw length bob. It looks fine. It just doesn't look like me--at least not yet.
I'm hoping I'll grow into it. (Hah! Pun honestly not intended.) In any case, I'm not interested in going any shorter to change the look. And I have a feeling I'll get used to it pretty quickly.
I may even like it. Who knows?
So, anyone else having a bad hair day?
