I was so over due for a haircut. I finally went this week.
Let me tell you about my hair. It's always had natural body to it, but as I had more children and aged, my hair got curly. Really curly when I just wash it and let it dry naturally.
The other thing about my hair is that it has become fine like baby hair. The individual shafts of hair are tiny.
I have weird cow licks in my hair, especially the two in the front on either side of my forehead.
All this works together to make hair "with a mind of its own." So I try to work with it and not against it.
For a year or so I was trying longer layers in my hair rather than the shorter ones I normally wear. I like it shorter layers on top for fullness, with my fine hair if it gets too long, it just hangs and drags my face down. So I decided to go back to more layers and I like it.
I really like the way it looks though these pictures taken yesterday in my bedroom don't look all that great.
And weirdly - this photos make me look more silver than I am - the last photo is more accurate as to color, but they show the haircut better than the last one.
