It began about a year ago. I was getting over a terrible cold, my hair felt awful and my hairdresser was booked for the next six weeks. Hopped up on medication I decided to take matters into my own hands.
Being a child of the current generation I took to YouTube. Within minutes I was feeling like an expert, ready to take the plunge and work on my layers. I was a little shocked when I was left holding a large amount of hair but once it was all done I thought it looked alright.
Not trusting my drug addled mind, I found someone to give me an honest opinion. The person was cautious, ” You look alright, what did you do?”
“I cut my hair!”
“Really? It doesn’t look different.”
I was thrilled. That statement meant that in spite of cutting at least an inch off every layer I had managed to not change the style. A whole new world opened to me.
Now I cut my hair sans cold medication every six weeks and visit a hairstylist annually to provide some additional shaping. I’ve also had people compliment my hair style and lament the difficulty getting someone who can cut curly hair properly. I feel them and if you’re in that boat I’ve got a wonderful video for you.
