Hello, pal! Whats up from the land of the (considerably) sane. It’s superb how chopping off all the surplus weight out of your hair could make you are feeling like a completely totally different individual. 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 known as Sheer Magnificence. In the event you’re ever in northern Marin and wish your hair completed from somebody right down to earth and simple to speak to, give her a shout!
I informed 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 reduce 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 prompt going conservative first with some lengthy layers, after which if I felt like I might go shorter, we might modify and take off extra of the size. She then reduce in some lengthy bangs that may body my face and would assist to cowl up the recession a bit.
Whereas she reduce my hair, we had an extended, considerate dialog on naturally grey hair. I informed her that I at the moment 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 instructor. On these days, I don’t really feel like what’s on the surface matches how I really feel on the within.
She talked about nearly 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 similar time.
Humorous factor is, it by no means occurred to me different girls would really feel the identical method. Whenever you see folks celebrating grey hair on-line, it’s nearly at all times so joyful and spirited. An ebullient insurrection in opposition to unattainable magnificence requirements.
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 maintaining 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 shade, she’d assist me out — however provided that I twisted her arm. LOL!
We’ll see. For now, I’ll maintain it.
