Winter Haircut.

It's that time again. The time that the ol' locks need some trimmin'. They've gotten a little bit out of control lately and the thing that was on the top their Christmas list was a little bit of love and attention.

I've mentioned before about the fear I feel when I walk into a hair salon. I still feel that the people who work there look at my long hair as though it were a big juicy steak that they're dying to slice into. With a butcher's knife.  That fear still exists. But in addition to fear, I also have an all around feeling of awkwardness. I walk in, the woman at the desk says "hello", and the rest of my stuttering goes something like this... "Um... Hi. I need a haircut. So... I came to the hair cuttery. Because you cut hair, and I need my hair to be cut. Could you cut my hair?" It would be so much simpler if I could just walk in, and since it is a hair cutting salon they could just assume I'm there to get my hair cut, and greet me with something like "Hi, you're here for a haircut, right? Sit down right there." Would save a lot of awkwardness.
Well, thankfully there were no butcher's knives handy and it turned out quite nicely.

Thanks, Leslie!

The font is called "Wenceslas". I like it and I've had some fun with it!

Wow, I LOVE your hair! Its beautiful! I cut absolutely ALL mine off a couple months ago, it looks great when it's straightened and fixed properly, but that's just the thing, before when it was past my bra strap in length I could get out of the shower, gel it and go because I have naturally curly hair and only got a cut ONCE a year..and that was a trim. This year I had a mid life (hair) crisis, and im only 22. I got the stack cut, where it's shorter in the back and longer in the front. Now I wish I had never touched it...and it was long and I was able to let it be curly again. But it grows back..right? LOL!

Natalie, thank you!
Having easy hair is such an important thing in life. I've had long hair almost all of my life (except for a time in college when i cut it up to my chin), and i really find that contrary to popular belief, long hair is easier! i don't have to do much to it at all. It is nice to know though, that no haircut is ever permanent. I think your haircut looks cute, but if its not what you like, you can rest assured that it will grow out.
I had to laugh, by the way. i didn't know other people also used the description of "bra strap length" for their hair :-) that is just about where mine is now, after getting about 4 (or so) inches taken off.
