About five years ago when Lily first started preschool I had gotten in the habit of cutting my own hair. David was traveling all the time and I was so busy with a two year old and a five year old that I hardly even noticed my hair. I'd try to keep it straight in the back, but really, it was pretty rough.
One day I was at the mall returning something at J.Jill when I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror and was horrified. I had had no idea it had gotten that bad. I knew that there was a beauty shop over by Lord and Taylor. I had one hour before I had to leave to pick up Lily so I went over there to see if they had anyone available.
It was on that day that I met Toni. She made hairdo magic and has continued to do so ever since.
I was stunned when I left the shop that day. My hair was amazing. Layers and flips and dips all came together to bring me the most perfect hair cut of my life.
I have been going to Toni ever since. I have never strayed. I have never cried after a hair cut. I have loved every single cut.
All of this is leading up to tell you why I felt brave enough to walk into the salon today and suggest bangs.
I haven't had bangs in years and up until five minutes before my hair cut bangs had never even occurred to me. While I was waiting for my turn I looked in one of those hair style books and saw bangs. Why not?
When I asked Toni about it she was very positive, but suggested we dye my hair darker first since it was time to say good bye to summer highlights.
Here I am with Toni.
Here's my new hairdo!
I love it!
Sometimes a little bit of change is good.
