Get thee to a hair salon!

.

Covid has changed our lives in a myriad of ways, and while I’d like to say I’ve come to appreciate the smaller things and learned I don’t need things like dinner out, travel, shopping trips and concerts ( though I do, I really do! ) what I’ve discovered is somewhat different.

Basically I need two things.

#1….. I need to step away from the bacon, cupcakes and potato chips. Who knew sitting on the couch blogging while stuffing your face with snacks for a year could lead to none of your clothes fitting properly ? Not me, that’s for sure.

And #2….. I need to find a hair salon ASAP. Because along with socializing and vacations, the other thing I haven’t done in a year is get my hair cut.

Last spring it was healthy and perfectly layered, this spring it’s dry, full of split ends and suffering from my crazed butchering with the kitchen scissors.

No layers, no shape, no bounce. I’ve never gone this long without a stylist working their magic and it’s beginning to show.

And no, I haven’t touched the color, it’s just different lighting in the photos.

To be honest I thought a solid year of unchecked growth would result in more inches but it only seems to have lengthened on the top. Leave it to me to have weirdo hair.

  1. I feel ya, but your hair looks healthy in the picture. I started this job in June of last year, which was my last hair cut and it was shorter than your in the first picture. I haven’t cut my hair since and its below the middle of my back (bra strap length.) Its grown so much because I’ve been taking collagen peptide powder everyday and boy has my hair grown. Not to mention my nails, I have to file them down every single week, or I’ll look like Wolverine.

  2. The pandemic caused me to let my bangs grow long; they’re almost long enough to reach the elastic I use for my ponytail. Soon I can ditch the little-girl hair clips that keep them in place during the growing phase. Nice that hardly anyone sees my these days.

    But the real treat, the only good thing to come of this pandemic, was discovering, via a YouTube video tutorial, how to cut the rest of my long, shoulder-blade-length hair myself. I had no idea it was so easy! Why have I paid for haircuts all these years??
