|The first awesome cut. I loved it!|
Warning - this post contains a lot of 'selfies'! I know, we all do it but that doesn't make the fact any less humiliating, especially when there are so many of them in one post. But you'll understand why as you read.... Anyway, here goes...
So the title of this post is a little embarrassing, but frankly that's what this is about... My hair.Its been around 20 months since I last had my hair cut pixie short, and I can't believe how much it has grown in that time. I loved having it so short, but at the same time it was a lot more effort and upkeep with having to cut it practically every month if I wanted to keep the perfect 'look'. The pros however of having such short hair was the time saved in getting it ready, always having a cute, no-thought, pre-planned look to wear no matter what the occasion, and it hid any grey strands of hair on the top of my head with a simple strategically placed part. It gets rid of old, dead hair and lets you start from scratch; this was awesome for me as I've had to dye my hair because of grey strands since I was about 22 and the result was dry and unhealthy, so cutting it all off was pretty much a necessity. Another thing is that it accentuates your features. Everyone would comment on it wherever I went; how it made my neck look longer, my eyes brighter, my jaw-line sharper. That was awesome for a 32 year old mother of three to hear :-)
|Trying a new color and experimenting|
with a fringe. One very annoying thing
about growing out a pixie is that you have
so much hair at the front that you have
to do SOMETHING with.
|2nd cut - Loved it at first but it was cheap and as it|
grew out it looked worse and worse..
|Growing it out....Annoying, but not as awkward a|
I thought it was going to be...
|At last, I can pull it back again!!! Kind of..|
|And now I can wear it however I want. Pretty cool, that.|
