So it’s been about 9 months since I last got my hair done. Yes, I could have already gestated a baby in this time (in fact, a few of my friends did). I *might* have gotten it cut in April (I can’t remember) – and colored it with a box ‘o color in May, but I haven’t gotten the full treatment since February. This is mainly because I didn’t love the person I was going to and the salon was pretty far from home (it took about 30-40 minutes from work). So instead of going to find someone new, I got lazy.
And then my boss found a new stylist (thanks KNed!) and I liked what she did with her color. So, I harassed her until she gave me her number and the rest is history.
I started out with scary hair. It overgrown and just blah. This is really because I finally let my bangs grow out – and let’s face it – I need bangs. My forehead is HUGE without them. It’s like a billboard.
Would you like to advertise on me?
I knew I wanted to add some color back, so I wanted to wait until I had passed the first trimester. I’m not overly paranoid about doing color when pregnant (or really anything I’m “restricted on” during pregnancy- yes, I plan on sipping a glass of wine on Thanksgiving) – but I WILL wait for the first trimester to pass for safe measure.
So long story short – I finally got my act together and got my hair done tonight. I went in not knowing what I wanted – except that I wanted it to be different – and that’s definitely what I got.
While I waited for my hair to process, I got to relax and watch Cruel Intentions. It’s crazy how young everyone is in that movie.
After about 35 minutes and a shampoo — the results were revealed…
I LOVE it.
I also love the cut and my new bangs (she did a quick trim and got rid of some of my bulk – my hair is super thick). The best part? She didn’t try to curl my hair under or flatten it beyond recognition – she styled it exactly like I would. It’s definitely the little things. Oh! And the fact that it only took 2 hours. It was the shortest cut and color ever.
It should be interesting to see how the color fades in the next few days (right now I look like I am REALLY excited about the FSU-UF game this Saturday).
One thing I know – I will definitely be back. Looks like I found myself a new stylist!
