Well kittens, it's happened again. I'm officially cursed by the hair gods. No matter what I ask for or how many pictures I take it never turns out quite right. I think this is why I put off haircuts as long as I possibly can and get anxiety the day of. This time, long face framing layers turned into side swept bangs, ugh.... I wouldn't say it looks horrible (thankfully), but it's definitely not what I wanted. Not to mention my new wisps are absolutely annoying the heck out of me, falling in my eye every time I look down. Which brings up several points:
1. Am I terrible at picking stylists? I took someones advice years ago and asked ladies who had great cuts for their recommendation. What else can I do??
2. Am I just too critical? Are my expectations too high? I totally get that stylist aren't miracle workers, certain cuts don't work on certain hair, etc...But my problem is more definite like how a request for mid cheek swooped layers turns into eyebrow grazing chunks.
3. What is with the love/hate relationship with hair? Can't live with it, can't live without it. I like it long, but it seems boring and blah sometimes. Then I get scared to do anything with it for fear of another disaster. It's a vicious circle! Sure it's just hair, but I'm a little attached to it. After all, I nurtured it, conditioned it, cared for it every day. In a way it feels a little like an extension of me like a pinky toe or ear lobe.
Since most of you don't know me personally, it may be hard to answer those questions. I guess it was more of a venting tactic than seeking actual answers. Oh well, I feel a little better already. Still wishing I lived in Florida so this girl could be my stylist, she totally gets it. *sigh*
Have you had a haircut horror(s) or are you blessed with good hair karma??
