I have put off getting my hair cut for far too long. As an older woman I really need shorter hair. Long hair and gravity tend to make the face look more slack and older.
So I went to finally do it the other day.
I also need a perm. I am one of those people with absolutely no body or natural curl in my hair. So I need some help to not look like a wet rat.
The woman doing my hair asked what I wanted. I told her. She asked me how I wanted her to accomplish what I wanted. I told her to use whatever method she is comfortable with.
So she applied all the chemicals and cut my hair.
Then she handed me a mirror. I was shocked!
My hair is totally straight. No curl or body whatsoever. She cut it along the bottom. Nothing off the top.
When I said I did not want a "bowl" cut ( looking like someone put a bowl on my head to use as a guide to cut it) she told me that was what I asked for. I insisted she do something.
Well for one thing she would layer it just a bit. If I wanted to come back in two weeks they could curl the top a little better.
After the third time of me insisting that she fix it I gave up. I paid her. It was not right but I did it.
I will have to wait a while to have someone else try to repair the damage. Meanwhile I will wear my baseball cap whenever I have to go out.
I look like the Friendly Giant. I am not happy with my hair at all. And I always thought of my hair as one of my better features.
So for a time I will only go out when I have to. I sure hope I can find someone competent to repair the damage. So I am hiding.
