I was feeling adventuresome today. Unfortunately, there weren't any adventures on my calendar for today, only an appointment with Amber, my hair stylist. This was convenient. Why, you ask? Well, I had previously decided to let my hair return to its natural color. ("Gasp! The color in your profile pic isn't natural?" Um ... no.) The only problem is, I didn't just get the Return of Natural Color as expected when it grew out. I also got the Advent of Grey Strands. So, you see...seriously, something TOTALLY had to be done, y'all.
Thus, our first installment of "When Adventuresome Feelings and Hair Appointments Collide."
Yes, I went a bit darker. Much shorter. And it's slightly assymetrical, which is a little deviant in a non-threatening kind of way. And it's still a little flippy and sassy, which has been my hair signature for a number of years now. (Can one have a hair signature? I hereby submit one can.)
My Philosopy of Hair is that it's an accessory: something fun to play with, change, and experiment occasionally. Yet at the same time, I don't want to spend much time every day messing with it. So, for me, the short, flippy style is awesome. It allows my unruly, wavy hair to have it's way, thereby minimizing the time I have to spend disciplining it into place. (If this worked with kids, my life would be so much simpler.)
I feel like it's pretty unique. Although (for the scrapbooking-obsessed among us) after looking at the photo I realized it's sort of "Cathy Zielske Meets Vicki Boutin." Which is good company to be in regardless.
So. What think ye? Totally Hip, or Get a Grip?
