Time for a Haircut

I HATE to get my hair cut. Because I have naturally curly hair it can be difficult to find someone who will cut my hair the way that I want. Most hair stylists just want to play with my hair and fix it the way that they want.

A few years ago I finally found someone that I liked... she cut my hair the way that I asked and she highlighted it the way that I liked. And then the salon closed and she was nowhere to be found. I looked around and I didn't find anyone that I was happy with for about a year... and then eureka! A local magazine/coupon book came in the mail last fall and on one page there was an ad for a local salon. As a part of the ad was a picture of the stylists and there she was... I had relocated my former stylist! Next time I needed a haircut I made an appointment with her.

So this week it was time for my dreaded hair cut. I think that this girl does a great job but my hair grows very slowly and so I am always afraid that it will get cut too short or be the wrong color. On top of that, it is expensive and so I tend to put it off as long as possible.

So here was my hair yesterday before my haircut. It's a terrible picture but I took it myself so that didn't help:

And here it was today after my haircut. This picture isn't much better but my brother took it while I was talking on the phone:

She barely trimmed it (in my attempt to grow my hair out) and highlighted it. It's probably a little blonder than it should be but the color will tone down a little over the next few days.

So I have survived another haircut and can hopefully go another three or four months before I have to have another one.

You look lovely! :) I really like it that blonde. Summer's coming, you know! You can get away with that!
