Hair Ch-Ch-Changes

I did it! I finally plucked up the courage - I cut my hair! Now I'm rocking short curls. I never thought I would do it. In fact I had been resistant to the idea of cutting my hair for a long time, but I finally did it today.

My hair had been annoying me for a while anyway. It was dry and breaking, it was weak and damaged because I hadn't given it a break from constant perms and braids. So last Friday, I took off a weave and I took a good look at my hair in the mirror, and decided it was time for it to go. I got a pair of scissors and started trimming it. I ended up making a bit of a mess. In a panic I texted my friend "Help! I've cut my hair and it looks awful". She must have thought I had gone mad, lol.

In the end I went to the salon to get it cut and curled properly. I must admit, it was weird at first to see my hair so short. In the salon, a lady there was watching as my hair was being cut. She said she was sad to see my hair on the floor, and she was wondering how I could sit there calmly while the stylist clipped away. I checked my reflection in the mirror one last time before leaving the salon and it looked good. I wondered what hubby would think.

I got home and to my surprise he absolutely loved it! He was excited to run his fingers through my short curls. He even promised to take me out and show off my new look, which was really cool. He took me out on Saturday and I loved every minute of it. He has been admiring my hair since.

On Monday morning I was a bit self-conscious when I walked into my office. Some people just stared and stared. My boss went "Wow that's drastic! But I love it". Most people said they loved it too because I have the face to carry it off. I think it takes confidence to rock a hair-style that is not the norm though. I like the fact that my hair is low maintenance now. So I'll be sticking with this style for a long long time.

  8. Wow ... I wish we could see a picture, it sounds great though!

    I absolutely love short hair but I do think some women definitely have the face to carry it off and unfortunately, I'm not one of them!

  9. Wow, girl since ur bobo like am , you no get problem............lol. Am happy and proud of you. So, you looking classy and sexy rocking ur fantasia curls.lol. Keep it up. Make sure you wash and set it weekly or every two weeks. That's the key to maintaining curls. My sister used to be on curls but she couldn't maintain it and it all got screwed up. Not trying to discourage you.............but l know you can do it. love girl.

    Yaay for cutting your hair. I think long hair is highly overrated. Especially if your hair is long, but unhealthy! And hair grows back! I'm sure the style is hot!

  15. @Bluntremi: True! I needed a new look and I got it!

    @Mosaic: Somebody else told me that long hair is overrated and I didn't believe them. Now I do! There's only so much you can do with unhealthy hair. I'm loving my short, healthy curls!
