Hello, buddy! Hey from the land of the (considerably) sane. It’s wonderful how chopping off all the surplus weight out of your hair could make you are feeling like a very completely different particular person. I really feel significantly much less loopy now that I don’t have 5 further 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. For those who’re ever in northern Marin and wish your hair finished by 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 lower wherever above my shoulders, it all the time 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 may go shorter, we may modify and take off extra of the size. She then lower in some lengthy bangs that will body my face and would assist to cowl up the recession a bit.
Whereas she lower my hair, we had a protracted, considerate dialog on naturally grey hair. I informed her that I presently 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 skin 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 identical time.
Humorous factor is, it by no means occurred to me different ladies would really feel the identical means. Once you see folks celebrating grey hair on-line, it’s nearly all the time so joyful and spirited. An ebullient riot in opposition to not possible magnificence requirements raging in opposition to the machine, one grey strand at a time.
Certain, 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 conserving my hair as it’s (“Don’t do it!”), and mentioned the grays regarded like completely positioned highlights, but when I ever needed 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 hold it.
