I haven't had a hair cut in almost 3 years, and have spent the last few months researching different salons. I hemmed and hawed for a long time, but I finally took the plunge and booked an appointment.
The before picture, taken in December, after I blow-dried it straight...
It's definitely a lot shorter than what I wanted. He wanted to take a lot more off, while I wanted to actually keep the overall length. We settled on a (semi-happy) medium, but I do think he won a little more than I did. I had forgotten how wavy my hair is, now that it's not weighed down. I do love the shape of the cut, but I wish I fought a little more on the length. Oh well, hair does grow back!
