disclaimer: this blog has to do with hair. If that sounds boring to you, just don’t read it. That way you don’t have to complain to me about my girly post. You know who you are. =)
So I’ve really been wanting to do something different with my hair lately. I’m just bored with it, but don’t have enough time or inclination to start styling it differently or very complicated. I can’t get it cut short, because a) Chris loves it long and wouldn’t like me to cut it (much), and b) me with short hair looks awkward-seventh-grade-ish. I think it probably doesn’t, but the last time I had my hair really short was when I was an awkward seventh grader, so I think I just have very unpleasant flashbacks. I don’t want to get it colored, because I’ve never colored it, and I’m WAY too practical/cheap – with my time and my money – to go get it touched up every 6 weeks. So I finally decided that I might like to get another perm or body wave.
I have had a few before, and I like how I look with wavy hair, and I like having the versitility of leaving it as is and having wavy hair or straightening it. So I stopped by my salon today to find out what the girls who cut my hair thought about that (before I scheduled the appointment and they refused to take the 10 hours it would take to perm my hair. Ok, maybe not 10 hours, but every time I’ve gotten it done, by the time the hairdresser finished, they never wanted to see me again.).
I have two girls that cut my hair – Shannon and Meaghan – and they both happened to be there at side by side stations, so I got to talk to both of them. Meaghan was finishing up someone’s hair, so Shannon talked to me first. Shannon has long, dark, shiny hair, and she was immediately opposed to the idea. She said it would make my hair lose its shine, it would look bad when it was growing out, and that I would have to put a ton of product in it to make it look decent. So she’d about convinced me that it was a terrible idea, and then she took over drying Meaghan’s client’s hair so Meaghan could have her say. Meaghan has short, bleached, blonde hair. Meaghan immediately said that she thought it would be a fun idea, that it would look great as long as I obeyed her care instructions, that it wouldn’t look bad growing out, that it wouldn’t lose it’s shine, and she was totally behind it. AHH!
So I left more confused than ever. I suppose I should give more credence to the hairdresser with hair more like mine, but at the same time, I really am bored with my hair and want to do something new. Plus, I’ve gotten body waves before and have really loved them (until about a year into them, then I want them to go away). I haven’t set an appointment yet, I’m going to think about it.
Any opinions anyone? I need help!!!!
