Hello, buddy! Good day from the land of the (considerably) sane. It’s wonderful how chopping off all the surplus weight out of your hair could make you’re feeling like a completely completely different particular person. I really feel significantly much less loopy now that I don’t have 5 additional kilos of mane on me!
I noticed somebody new this time, a stylist in my city named Heather. She has her personal salon-slash-beauty-studio in downtown Novato referred to as Sheer Magnificence. In case you’re ever in northern Marin and need your hair executed by somebody right down to earth and straightforward to speak to, give her a shout!
I instructed Heather I wanted some size and weight eliminated, and that I’m, deep down in my core, an individual who loves having lengthy hair. I swear, each single time I get my hair minimize wherever above my shoulders, it at all times feels too quick, and I instantly remorse it. I additionally talked about how my hair doesn’t like razor cuts, and the way I’m very self acutely aware of the recession on my temples.
She steered going conservative first with some lengthy layers, after which if I felt like I might go shorter, we might alter and take off extra of the size. She then minimize in some lengthy bangs that might body my face and would assist to cowl up the recession a bit.
Whereas she minimize my hair, we had an extended, considerate dialog on naturally grey hair. I instructed her that I at present have blended emotions about mine. Some days, I find it irresistible, however different days, not a lot.
I positively have these moments after I look within the mirror, and I really feel just like the grays make my face look stark and harsh, like a imply piano trainer. On these days, I don’t really feel like what’s on the skin matches how I really feel on the within.
She talked about virtually all the ladies in her chair who’ve naturally grey hair have the identical blended emotions, and the way it’s completely regular to like them and hate them on the identical time.
Humorous factor is, it by no means occurred to me different girls would really feel the identical method. Whenever you see individuals celebrating grey hair on-line, it’s virtually at all times so joyful and spirited. An ebullient revolt in opposition to not possible magnificence requirements raging in opposition to the machine, one grey strand at a time.
Positive, I’ve these days after I really feel nice about it, too, however there are additionally days after I get sick of individuals calling me “ma’am” and I. JUST. CANNOT. DEAL.
Anyway, it was insightful to listen to that others felt equally.
Heather suggested protecting my hair as it’s (“Don’t do it!”), and stated the grays seemed like completely positioned highlights, but when I ever wished to do a demi-permanent colour, she’d assist me out — however provided that I twisted her arm. LOL!
We’ll see. For now, I’ll hold it.
