If you are looking for depth, there is none in this post. Not one iota. I get my hair cut and re-blonded this evening. I cannot wait.
I've had a fairly classic bob for ages and ages. Sometimes it's longer, sometimes it's shorter, but it's mostly the same shape. With subtle blonde highlights.
This last time, though, I told my stylist I'm trying to grow it out. Because Lindsey, my ex-stylist, who moved to South Beach to be a high-heels-by-the-pool girl, cut it shorter and shorter over the prior year. To where, suddenly, I had a Very Short Bob. Too short.
But whatever he did to try to let me grow it out, the back is driving me batshit crazy. It's too blunt or something. It hits my neck (and I hate the hair on my neck feeling) and then sticks straight out. Or sideways. So it hangs nicely in the front and then the back chunk swirls out sideways.
So people are probably thinking, oh, poor girl, she takes the entire back of her hair and tries to make it into a Nike swoosh. She sure does look normal from the front.
Anyway. You know how sometimes you are fine with something until a point? And then, at that precise moment in time you feel you can bear it no longer?
That's what happened with my hair two weeks ago, when the back swoosh really kicked in. And it's just barely too short to pull it all back. But my stylist is a busy busy man. And so I knew I had to wait.
Because my days of messing with my own hair are done. They were many, they were varied, and sometime I'll tell you about the time my dad dyed my hair in the garage. But those eff up my own hair days, they are over.
And so I have been waiting and loathing my hair with ever fiber of my being.
But now! The wait is over! I have on the cute trendy dress! I will bring platform shoes so I can change out of my commuting sneakers before hitting the salon. I will apply makeup before I leave work this afternoon.
And, god willing, by seven this evening I'll have the sticky-outy back of my hair issue resolved! I'll have the nicely layered elegant bob again. I'll have new highlights! Yippee!
