If you’ve been on the MM Facebook page lately, you’ve probably seen my latest hair cut.
Husband used his Wahl clippers with a 1-inch guard around the sides & back, then finished with the trimmers around my ears & side burns. I used my Goody hair scissors to cut semi-layers on top.
Not bad for a home, “tag-team” hair cut. Ha!
I was so worried at first, because it was not going good, at all.
First, we tried just using the scissors to cut really short layers all around.
It was a disaster.
The layers looked like a broken, winding road…going up the side of the mountain.
I decided to just go for the look I’ve been craving to have for awhile; shaved-sides & length at the top. I gave him the go ahead to grab the clippers.
He started shaving off 3-4 inches of my hair & looked/sounded so calm doing it. He is not a barber, and wears his head bald. For some reason, I kept wanted him to sigh, or make some kind of noise acknowledging that this “bright idea” I had was a huge mistake.
I heard nothing but “Stop…turn around.” every time I tried to peek in the mirror.
When he finally let me look, I couldn’t stop smiling.
These photos were taken the night of the cut.
I wish I could’ve worn it like this longer & had time to play around with styling the top length, but the shaved bits & granules of hair on my neck, started to make me itch.
After a shower & shampoo, I twisted the top section of my hair with Miss Jessie’s Curly Meringue.
The next day, I unraveled the twists, and misted the back & sides of my hair with water, before coiling random pieces about my fingers, also using a bit of Miss Jessie’s. I might review this product later…
This was the result…
I went home, to my parent’s house & it took awhile before anyone (except my dad) noticed that they could see my scalp. LOL I guess the change wasn’t as huge as I thought it was.
When my sister realized & made the announcement, everyone “Ahhh’d” & showered me with compliments. The family loved my new look.
& I do too!!!
I think I’m going to keep this one for awhile, because I’m really enjoying it! Thanks Hubby 🙂
My head feels so much lighter/cooler! I feel edgier; and, I really look forward to washing my hair now. It doesn’t take as long to get all my hair wet & I no longer have to part it with my fingers to get at my scalp 🙁 Not to mention, only having a pinch to detangle is just too easy.
