So... February probably isn't the best time for me to be making major decisions when it comes to my hair.
You see, back in the day, before I met Paul, I used to get my hair trimmed and colored once a month. It was bright red and shoulder length and it flipped out at the ends and I paid about $200 each time I saw my brilliant russian hairdresser Nina, to keep it that way. I was working about 40 hours a week, between working in the college training room and lifeguarding at the pool, and I had extra money and I spent it.
That seems like a very long time ago now. But lately (read: this week) I've been feeling like my hair needs a change. I'd look in the mirror and my eyes would just look tired and I'd think "bangs, I need bangs!" but let's face it, it would be silly to spend money on something like a hair cut (I cut everyone else's hair in this house) and it's not something I really need. Paul cut my hair, back in August 2011, and he did a good job, but I wasn't sure I trusted him to try something more than a straight line to even out the ends. And my hairs pretty much up in a bun anyways, so does it really matter?
Then I went upstairs with the scissors... And started trimming.
|Uh oh. That's more hair than I thought it would be...|
Trimming turned into cutting.... about halfway through I grabbed a box and thought... maybe this hair is long enough to donate:
And then the bangs... I cut them while my hair was dry and cut them longer than I thought they needed to be and still... still way too short. But it's done. And other than the bangs, I'm okay with the rest... Hoping Paul likes it too!
|After washing it I realized that someone had moved my hairdryer (which I use like once a month)... so...|
Here's me with towel dried hair after washing it!
It could have been worse!
Now we just need to see how it dries...
Last night I caught them, each with a flash light in hand, trying to break out of their room to explore the house. They're quite the team these days...
Here they are as Rapunzel and Snow White:
