Can I just say that I discovered I am the most un-photogenic person alive? It took a lot of picture-taking attempts, and a lot of photo-editing just to be able to share these few photos on my blog!
My typical style for the last couple of years has been to twist it up in a clippy like this.
She took about 4 inches off and layered the sides a little bit and used a straightener to fix it
It's still long enough for me to pull up the sides with clips if I so desire.
My hair has natural wave so it looks fuller than the "salon-look" if I don't straighten it.
I like it! I can also use hot rollers for a really curly look if I want to look fancier.
Because I had trouble getting an appointment with my favorite couple of hairdressers in town, I went to someone I didn't know. Can I just say she was the most unprofessional hairdresser I've ever seen? I seriously thought I would be crying when I left. She complained about her work, used an unwashed comb and dirty apron, called her hubby and argued with him on the phone while cutting my hair, told me all of her problems, and acted like she was done after 5 minutes. She also had greasy, unkempt hair and a grubby outfit on (not the greatest way to inspire clients) and insulted my current part ("Lose the butt crack on your head!"), even though it was a side-part, not a middle-part. However, because she was mad at her husband she ended up taking 30 minutes on my hair instead of going home right away and did ask me for lots of input, so I ended up being really happy when I left the shop. And at least the haircut was only $15! But I definitely won't be going back there! I'll plan ahead and call a few weeks ahead for an appointment at a more professional place!
