My Hairy Dilemma

I am unpleasable. I used to have hair like this:


Here I am, before my hair cut.  Posted by Hello

And then I had it cut. Now I look like this:


Here I am, after my hair cut.  Posted by Hello

My husband has no sympathy. He says, “At least you have hair.”

Yeah, if that’s what you want to call this disobedient curly mop on my head.

Note to self: Admonish hair stylist not to cut shortish layers in naturally curly hair to prevent the Little Orphan Annie effect.

At least hair grows.

  3. I feel your pain, Mel. I went in for a bang trim a week ago and the woman butchered ’em. I look like a three-year-old who got hold of mom’s scissors and did ’em myself. What about “I like my bangs long” didn’t she understand? Hiding out til they grow out!

  5. lol. that is why I don’t even get my haircut anymore. The shorter it is, the curlier it gets and stylist don’t get this. When you have curly hair and you ask for a cut to just above your shoulders, why, even after a reminder, do they forget that you loose a couple of inches? I have had some pretty special cuts, let me tell you! I had a fro when I was little, no joke, just ask my mom!
