My hairdresser won't be cutting hair for a year. That is enough to cause serious depression. Not only will I have to break in a new hairdresser, I will have to pay her to train her.
I remarked to a young female employee at WM that I loved her bang cut. Of course, her hair was coarse and thick like my children's hair. Mine is very fine and has decided to be thinner, too. I told her I was so desperate that I thought about cutting the back. The front and sides are easy.
Following her instructions, I put my hair, minus bangs and sides into a ponytail right below my crown, actually on the back of my head and cut off a certain amount of the ponytail. IT WORKED! Now, don't cut off the whole ponytail. Unless you want to...lol.
She said she found a youtube video on "how to cut your hair." There are probably hundreds, so I just did what she showed me.
A high ponytail on the top of the head gives shorter layers. The ponytail placement and how much you cut off are the two factors that determine the cut. I think exbf is relieved to hear I don't want him to cut it again like he did about three years ago.
While I was in KMart getting more bargains, I saw a friend, not a close friend at all. But, I knew she would tell me the truth. She and her friend were shocked that I cut it so even. They wanted to know how I did it. Score! Then, while in WM, I saw the same employee who said it looked good. A customer wanted her to explain how to cut it like mine, in layers and with a ponytail.
That is $20 each month I can save. I know it's a lot, but since I have been ill, she has refused payment. This is my one really big splurge. I need my hair long, but not stringy; layered, but not chopped up; cut to look fuller, but not left too bushy at the bottom.
When I was married, I cut ex's hair and both girls' and boy's hair.
Do you ever cut your hair like this? Cut it at all? Cut others' hair? Given anyone a horrid haircut? Gotten a horrid home or shop haircut?
