Some people wanted a picture of my feel-good haircut so here is one.
My hair is fine in texture but very thick. As is obvious, it wants to wave where it wants to wave. Not curl or fall softly. It is more into the Medusa snake dance if left to its own devices.
When I was much younger and wanted a particular hair style--like for a year book picture or a wedding, my hair actually caused hair dressers to break down in tears of frustration. So imagine how I felt.
Now, there are times when I walk out of the salon feeling pretty good about a haircut, but once I wash it myself it is over. For a time I wore it really short not because I liked the way it looked but because it was wash and go. Then I grew it long enough to pull back into a perpetual ponytail but that got to be too severe looking.
The professional blow out of this haircut was very nice, but this picture was taken after a few washes and it really seems to work with the texture of my hair somehow. I like the way it feels on my head. I do not spend a lot of time fussing with my hair and make-up so how it feels is important to me.
