Hello, good friend! Good day from the land of the (considerably) sane. It’s superb how chopping off all the surplus weight out of your hair could make you’re feeling like a very 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 called Sheer Beauty. When you’re ever in northern Marin and need your hair performed by somebody right down to earth and simple to speak to, give her a shout!
I advised 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 lower wherever above my shoulders, it all the time feels too brief, and I instantly remorse it. I additionally talked about how my hair doesn’t like razor cuts, and the way I’m very self aware of the recession on my temples.
She instructed going conservative first with some lengthy layers, after which if I felt like I might go shorter, we might alter and take off extra of the size. She then lower in some lengthy bangs that will body my face and would assist to cowl up the recession a bit.
Whereas she lower my hair, we had a protracted, considerate dialog on naturally grey hair. I advised 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 after 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 girls would really feel the identical means. If you see folks celebrating grey hair on-line, it’s virtually all the time so joyful and spirited. An ebullient insurrection towards inconceivable magnificence requirements raging towards the machine, one grey strand at a time.
Certain, I’ve these days after I really feel nice about it, too, however there are additionally days after 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 protecting my hair as it’s (“Don’t do it!”), and stated the grays seemed like completely positioned highlights, but when I ever needed to do a demi-permanent coloration, she’d assist me out — however provided that I twisted her arm. LOL!
We’ll see. For now, I’ll hold it.
