I went and got my hair cut today at my favorite (for now) salon. I’ve been growing my hair since last August, when I got a real good hair cut. Since January I’ve been babying my hair and have been trying not to use as much heat on it as I used to. This means putting away my hair straightener and trying to maneuver a hair brush and blow dryer to get the style I want. You can see what I put in my hair by reading my hair care routine, which needs to be updated.
In order to make my hair grow longer, I don’t go in for a regular trim every 6-8 weeks. I try and make it as long as 13-14 weeks.
My hair has grown quite a bit since then, and you can tell in one of my recent YouTube videos, how long its gotten. Forgive the blue/yellow-ness of the photo. I was feeling lazy and didn’t feel like editing it just for this post.
My ideal hair length is about two inches longer than it is now. There after, I plan on keeping it that length for a while and then probably doing some fun things with it. Like getting the courage to dye it again after my hair disaster back in early 2011. Don’t worry, that hair stylist and I broke up abruptly.
So here is my hair cut as of just about an hour ago. Before and After pictures. Always fun to see how much he trimmed off.
For my hair’s future, I came across the Box No. 216 website with all sorts of hair styles and dye jobs. I’ve saved this specific page on my e-mail and plan on bringing it into my hair stylist to replicate in the next year or so. Hey, I’m a slow mover… I think that’s fair after everything I went through with my poor hair.
I think the model has the same type of hair as I do, not too much hair but enough… either way, I really like the baby blonde hair at the ends, and not all over. A nice brown on top. Similar to what I have now. I definitely do not want these caramel highlights though. I wonder if I should bring those photos in too to tell him what I don’t want. Decisions.
My hair is serious business. I’m tellin’ ya. Nobody compares to my old hair stylist back home, Ron. He gave me some great hair throughout the years… some crazy colors, some beautiful layers.
