On the 5th of July, Lauren and I had had it with our hair. Her's is cut short usually, but was getting too long, and mine was long, and getting even longer and hotter and heavier. So what did we do? We went and got our hair cut! We took our fearless husbands with us so we didn't have to speak, and then we went to the salon that is just around the corner from the apartment that Matt and I live in. Lauren went first, and they did a great job with her hair, especially for just having a couple of pictures to go off of. Then it was my turn. I'd been wearing my hair up to keep it off my neck, because it's so hot and humid here. So when they asked how long my hair was, i don't think they believed me when I told them it was past my shoulders. Then they asked how much I wanted cut off and I showed them this picture. I love the style of her hair! They looked at me like I was kinda crazy, but once I pulled my hair down then I think they started to understand! The lady who was cutting my hair just kept holding it up and looking at the curls and saying how beautiful they were. After she was finished cutting my hair, she tried to style it.
But she didn't put any product in it at all before she started to blow dry it. Curly hair-product+blow dryer= Kinda Scary. Way puffy, I think I could have styled it into a fro if I'd tried.
But after a shower, some mouse and hairspray, and THEN the hair dryer, I ended up with this, which I think looks much better! And it looks even better when it's fully dry, in my opinion. Thus far it has been great! I can wear my hair down and show off my curls, and i don't get too hot! Matt likes it too, which is a plus.
