I was chatting with some dear friends the other day and the subject of how difficult it is to get the perfect haircut came up. You know, the one you dream about. The one that flatters your face and makes people say, “you look amazing” not “I like your haircut.”
This is what I’ve had for most of my life:
When I get tired of my long hair I do this:
I’ve done this three times. Yes, three. And then I have this:
Please ignore the facial expression. This haircut is what I have right now. It’s fine. But I just feel like I could do better.
This is my current dream:
Sooo amazing. But I just don’t know if I could pull it off. And I won’t know until I find a brilliant hairdresser who won’t let me get a cut that won’t work for my face. And if it won't look good, then she (or he) will tell me what haircut I should get. Someday. Someday I will find the one.
Has anyone out there in blogland gotten a really great haircut that they always stick with? Does anyone cut their own hair? Has anyone ever said "do whatever you want" to their hairdresser?
