I explained to my stylist what I wanted and she totally understood my vision. Something short, cute and spunky, I told her. We looked at some pictures and she got to work. My hair is mostly wavy with some ringlet curls on the back of my neck. I've battled the waves and curls, which all behave differently depending upon where I live, for years. It's exhausting, and since I'm now in humidity central, I regularly lose the battle. I don't like spending a lot of time doing my hair, so I figured I better join forces with the waves. As my stylist cut she commented that it was getting wavier, which was perfect for my new style. I can just dry it (I have to pay attention to drying my bangs the right way, but the rest doesn't matter), put some goup in it (I like Aquage Transforming paste) and I'm done. Easy, cute and simple. I love it.
I didn't tell anyone I was going to do it, so when I went to pick up my kids from school I got interesting responses. My daughter smiled and said she like my hair. My son looked at me, smiled and then started crying!! He said he hated it and that it looked creepy!! I laughed - I really didn't expect that response! He got over it later. The baby didn't notice. The husband said although he likes pony tails (which do not work on me - I just end up with a halo of yucky frizz) he likes it. What else is he really going to say, though? :-) Either way, I'm loving it, especially since the heat is rolling in with a nice dose of humidity, and it's only going to get worse.
