Well, I went to the salon last week, armed with my picture and determination. I told the stylist that yes, I did understand that the woman in the photo had really thick hair, and so my fine, thin hair would be different, but that I just at least wanted the "idea" of that cut. I also wanted to get my color refreshed, since a) it needed it, and b) we were heading home over the long weekend to visit family and friends.
I also considered this the last chance for this particular stylist, as she has been hit or miss lately.
I am really pleased. I got a cut that I like, and the color looks great. She seemed to understand just what I meant, and went out of her way to try and get it the way I wanted it to look. I cannot tell you how happy this makes me. Let's face it, you wear your hair every single day, and if you are unhappy about the way you look, it definitely makes a difference.
Yes, I am vain.
But right now? I'm also pretty happy about the whole thing. No more Hair Dread!
