January is crazy, and it's not even half way through. I haven't had time to blog and all my blog ideas (which always make their special appearance when I'm driving, unfortunately) have evaporated into a place where it's never to be seen again, the graveyard of dead blog ideas. Anyway, just to fill up the space, I thought I'd post something I wrote back in April 2011 but never published.
I suppose it's easier when you have good lighting and a professional camera person, but try taking a photograph of your hairstyle by yourself, and all you'll get is a big black blob (if the hair is black, that is) So after several failed attempts with and without the help of a mirror, I have officially given up on capturing a photo of the most amazingly awesome haircut I have ever had. What's even weirder is that even my mom was less than pleased with her 'chopped up' hairstyle as well (we got it cut on the same day), and a few days later another cousin gets a haircut and claims that she's been given the coconut shell hairdo!
Therefore, where photography failed, a pencil, paper and an eraser won the day. The pictures speak for themselves.
What is the worst part of this bad haircut? The hairdresser actually valued it as a masterpiece, and she was adamantly proud of it. In fact, she actually told me to 'fluff' up the sides near my ears (thank you very much, but I refuse to have a hairdo that would make me look like a soap star from the 80's!!) as that's how the cut should be.
Now all I've got to do is wait for the hair to grow out... and,
a) Fervently hope that hairstyles from the 80's do not make a comeback. Ever!
b) Restart my "do not go to the same hairdresser/hairdressing salon two times in a row"
c) Remind myself that no matter how hot it is... long is always safe.
d) Always say 'trim' and not 'cut'
e) Remind them to maintain the length of the 'shortest strands of hair' below the earlobe.
Note: Hair's all grown out and proper now, but I need to cut it again. The fear of another disastrous haircut is the reason why I've been putting it off.
