We cut my hair at home - pics

dia99dia99 Posts: 1,998Registered Users
Okay, I kind of took Webjockey's suggestion to get a haircut. :lol:

I was in the shower this morning and felt the urge. So, I started cutting. Then, I called DaNa in (he thought I had gone crazy when he saw the bag of hair) and had him help me with the back. Here are some pics. I tried to cut it pretty close to the length at the top, so that it is more one length.

I have a $70 gift certificate to the best (of maybe two :roll: ) black haircare salon on the island, so I'll probably go and have her attempt to fix whatever mistakes I've made on my spring break. I just couldn't stop thinking about cutting my hair....

Critique as much as you want; I can experiment with it until I go get it fixed anyway. :D

before cut - back, this is actually a ponypuff before I washed it so not down

I'll take some more pics in the next few days to see how it settles in.

    Thanks, everybody!! I'll tell DaNa; he's still looking at me strange for just picking up the scissors like that. :lol:

    I would advise everyone to stay away from my "chair." When I was a teenager I used to play around with my hair. My aunt used to ask me to do her hair and she said I somehow never got other people's hair to look quite as nice as when I did my own. :twisted:

    Okay, this is not helping with the bigness, but I'll blame that on my cut. I did love how much quicker it was to wash my hair this morning!!! The downside is I can't do a real ponytail anymore, but I should be able to by summer, I think.

    This is after 4-5 hours airdrying, and one lady at church coming up to me and putting both of her full open palms in my hair, smushing it to my scalp and rubbing her hands around, then exclaiming, "You know I just love when you wear your hair like that!" :lol:

    Goodness!

    I was hair-assed on Saturday... A girl I know saw me in the grocery store, grabbed fistfulls of my hair, and started pretending it was hers by draping it over her head, etc. Smelling it ("it smells soooo good"), rubbing her face it it.

    Long hair is just as bad for harassment as big highly-textured hair, so it seems. :?


    I like the cut, too, BTW. You should get it touched up a wee bit on break, but the ends look a lot better - fresh. 8)

    That is so funny, and disgusting at the same time. :lol: :?

    I'm going to call this week and make my appointment - I keep seeing loose hairs.

    Thanks to you and TroDous for the compliment!!

    Thanks you guys! DaNa hardly ever asks about board stuff, but of course he wants to know what *you* think of the haircut. :lol:

    I'll be sure to tell him that the back got special recognition. :D
