A few inches later…

The new year for me doesn’t represent all these resolutions I’m going to stick to and then fail and then feel bad about myself. It represents a new beginning only as far as my stress level goes. Zennnnnnnnnnn (and I have been doing great!). Ok, it also meant a new hair cut!

I’ve had short hair ever since I moved to California more than 7 years ago (already!!). Finally last year I decided to just let it grow. And so I let it grow and grow and grow until it reached the same length I used to have in high school. It felt so good. I could play with it, I could do all sorts of fun up-does, I could whip it around and feel feminine. But the longer it grew, the more it felt kind of rough at the tips and my hair stylist would always tell me “are you sure you don’t want to pay an extra $30 and get a deep conditioning treatment?”. Yes, I’m sure I don’t want to pay $90 + tip to just get my hair trimmed/reshaped and revitalized for two days. I mean, yesterday I got a deep conditioning treatment at Sally’s beauty supply for $1.79 a packet. That’s what I’ll go for, thank you very much.

But in the end, when hair is damaged, there’s not much to do other than just cut it. And so I did. I went back to my hair stylist (whom I really like by the way, even if I make it sound like I don’t right now), I passed on the conditioning treatment and asked her for a long A-line bob. For the non-initiated, an A-line bob is when it’s shorter in the back and longer in the front. Kind of the reverse of a mullet, right?

Anyways, here’s the result when my hair is wavy. (I have a tendency to straighten it out to go to work. It makes me look more serious… but you know I can’t act too serious!)

I like it. What do you think?

Important note: Look at the hair not the face, these picture was taken an early morning… way before my facial muscles were awake… hence the slightly sleepy look.
