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 out of doors haircuts and made an appointment with a gal named Ariana Benoit (discovered her by an area 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 seemed so comfortable and cute. I at all times get a little bit nervous when stylists I haven’t gone to earlier than minimize my hair because I’ve have so many bad haircuts. Plus, pandemic. However I needed to do one thing as a result of the load from my hair had been giving me complications day by day.
Regardless that everybody was masked up and taking precautions, to scale back the period of time I’d should be within the chair, the salon prompt 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’d preserve my hair lengthy for now.
Fact be instructed, I’ve been a little bit out of my thoughts currently (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 need to do something too excessive. It’s in all probability not the perfect thought to make massive adjustments if you aren’t feeling emotionally tremendous sturdy, ya know?
Ariana actually took the time to see the place my hair naturally needed to half, then guided me by what realistically it could and wouldn’t do. She prompt going with a Bridget Bardot-style minimize with curtain bangs so I may preserve the size, but drop the load. The curtain bangs would additionally enable some softness round my face for once I must throw my hair up right into a bun or a ponytail (which is usually).
I’m actually pleased with the way it turned out, and I virtually really feel like myself once more. 🤗
