So after blog posts, sleepless nights and stupid amounts of anxiety, I finally got my hair cut.
My hairdresser was nice, friendly, but never really paid attention to what I wanted. I showed her pictures, mentioned I don't like highlights, steered her away from layering my hair too much, showed her another picture...and ended up getting everything I didn't want and nowhere near what I showed her. So I was pretty sad after a stressful week and the whole thing felt a little impersonal and quick. I won't go to her again I don't think, she styled my hair like we were in the 60's, I suppose its called a blow wave for a reason.
However, after washing it and messing it up just the way I like I am finally happy with it. Sorry lady, you actually didn't do a bad job, I am just being a brat about it ;)
Girls hey, pfft.
