I can always tell when Wendy links to me, because my small number of daily page views skyrockets into the region of four hundred plus. Hope someone found something worthwhile to look at besides the lone picture of the circus trucks. I wanted to take more, but I was late for class and kickboxing took precedence. When I came home tonight, later than normal, the circus was letting out and the streets were filled with people wearing Bello hair and top hats and lugging big bags of stuff. I'll be buying cotton candy at the circus week after next, but nothing else. (BTW, I am totally with Wendy. Clowns are creepy. Mom managed to get me past my fear of them, but I still don't like them.)
So where was I tonight, you ask? At the hairdressers, hence the bad pun in the post title. I tried to look for some before shots, and you can see more in the FO pictures in the sidebar, but last summer my hair was about shoulder-blade length.
When I got here in February, I had it cut to shoulder length and shaped a little, as you've seen in some of my fashion show posts. Today I went all out and chopped it all off. The length is now "Oh My God It's Short" short.
I'm honestly a little freaked out. My hair hasn't been this short since I had a run-in with a pair of scissors in 9th grade, which ended up taking several hours with a professional hairdresser to clean up - and resulted in a rather boyish looking haircut. I hated it. The worst part is that it was totally self-inflicted. My younger brother did not sneak up on me and hack indiscriminately at my hair. I hacked at it myself when it wouldn't do what I wanted before a school dance. Lesson learned. I don't cut my own hair anymore. Hats are a much less traumatic option on bad hair days.
I haven't decided if I like it or not. It was too puffy when I left the salon, but deflated to the point above after dinner, a metro ride and the walk home. It's better than it was. I'm holding judgment to see what happens when I have to style it myself. And what happens when I don't blow dry it straight and my curl comes through. I think that will be a Saturday experiment.
