I lastly acquired my hair choppity-chop-chopped, and oh, my gosh! — the aid is palpable! After carrying what felt like a 10-pound moist canine on my head since early final 12 months, I really feel like an entire new individual. Bodily, mentally, emotionally, spiritually. All of the “lly” phrases. It felt nice to unload that reminder of 2020 for me.
I discovered a salon in my space that gives outside haircuts and made an appointment with a gal named Ariana Benoit (discovered her via a neighborhood mothers group on Fb).
One of many group members posted a pic of her layered lob after Ariana had minimize it, and she or he appeared so glad and cute. I at all times get a bit nervous when stylists I haven’t gone to earlier than minimize my hair as a result of I’ve have so many dangerous haircuts. Plus, pandemic. However I needed to do one thing as a result of the load from my hair had been giving me complications on daily basis.
Despite the fact that everybody was masked up and taking precautions, to cut back the period of time I’d need to be within the chair, the salon recommended I wash my hair at house and arrive to the appointment with it moist, in order that’s what I did. I additionally double-masked and wore my glasses.
I introduced a few inspiration pictures with me to the appointment, with the concept that I might hold my hair lengthy for now.
Fact be advised, I’ve been a bit out of my thoughts these days (I believe I’ve hit the pandemic wall, le sigh), and though I used to be tempted to ask her to cut all of it off, I didn’t wish to do something too excessive. It’s most likely not the perfect thought to make large adjustments once you aren’t feeling emotionally tremendous robust, ya know?
Ariana actually took the time to see the place my hair naturally needed to half, then guided me via what realistically it will and wouldn’t do. She recommended going with a Bridget Bardot-style minimize with curtain bangs so I may hold the size, but drop the load. The curtain bangs would additionally enable some softness round my face for after I have to throw my hair up right into a bun or a ponytail (which is commonly).
I’m actually pleased with the way it turned out, and I nearly really feel like myself once more. 🤗
Your pleasant neighborhood magnificence addict,
