Hello, buddy! 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. When you’re ever in northern Marin and wish your hair accomplished by somebody all the way down to earth and straightforward 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 anyplace 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 steered going conservative first with some lengthy layers, after which if I felt like I may go shorter, we may alter and take off extra of the size. She then reduce in some lengthy bangs that will 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 presently have blended emotions about mine. Some days, I like it, however different days, not a lot.
I undoubtedly have these moments once 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 virtually 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 ladies would really feel the identical means. Whenever you see folks celebrating grey hair on-line, it’s virtually at all times so joyful and spirited. An ebullient revolt towards unattainable magnificence requirements raging towards the machine, one grey strand at a time.
Positive, I’ve these days once I really feel nice about it, too, however there are additionally days once 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 holding my hair as it’s (“Don’t do it!”), and mentioned the grays appeared 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 maintain it.
