The Hair Cut

Sooo my very long hair has had split ends for a month and I have been dying to get them trimmed. I got my tax refund on Thursday so I happily scheduled an appointment for Saturday. My normal hair stylist was on vacation so I went with a new person on a close friends recommend. I had met her before since she goes to my gym and felt confident it would be fine since I only wanted 2 inches trimmed off.

Uh huh.

So Saturday I get there and everything is going well. I explain to her that after a stressful couple of years where a lot of my hair fell out I have been working hard to build it back up and strengthen it again. I expressed how I liked my long hair and was there for a 2 inch trim to help it grow even longer.
She smiled and said she understood and started talking about Whitney Houston.

There was some light cuts and life was good. Then she took a large chunk of my hair straightened it out and cut it chin length. All I could do was stare in disbelief.
It was too late to stop her since I didn't want a mullet.
So I left the hair salon looking like this:

Spanky's was no help at all.

I work hard to be a positive person under all circumstances and this situation felt like a test of that mindset, a final in fact. I'm happy to say I passed. After a few minutes of serious moping I decided to let it go since there was nothing I could do and move on.

As you can see here in day 2 I am on my way to happy again.

Day 3 pretty much happy

To stay on the happy bandwagon here is a list of why my shorty short haircut rocks:

1) It finally solves the question if I have any remaining dyed hair leftover from my color crazy days.

2) No more spilt ends

3) It will take me less time to wash my hair

4) Since I can't wear my hair back I'm breaking out my old hair clips

5) It is thick again and ...... crazy curly which I guess is a good thing?

The Perfect Short!

The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore from Moonbot Studios on Vimeo.

I love Buster Keaton, Books and William Joyce so when I saw the above short I was in heaven.
I pretty much feel the way about the power of books that this animated short portrays.

Sheer Heaven.
