Best haircut of my life

Hey - this is fiber related.... Hair is fiber.

I've been growing my hair out for the last 3 or 4 years. I used to wear it very very short - about 2" all over to bring out the curl. I have serious hair envy for my sister Belinda's hair. Long thick curly hair, so I decided to see if I grew mine out - would it be even half as nice. Well it isn't. Besides not having the same hair, I am just not into taking care of it like she does.

So, last month on a visit to her in Missouri - I asked her to cut my hair down to something more manageable. She removed 6 inches, which brought it up to just above shoulder length.

I have been wearing it like that for a few weeks, but now it's too hot on my neck and just a little to short to wear pulled up. One of my my other sisters, Juanita, has been going to this salon that she loves. She takes her kids there too and has been suggesting that I come with her.

So I made the appt to get my hair cut and decided to go crazy and get some color streaks too.

I love my new hair cut - and the red streaks are fabulous. The cut is short in the back and longer at the sides. I wear my combs on the sides to pull it back away from my face and with a little wave at the top.

I don't have a pic, but will see if I can get one.

Meantime - I now love my hair, instead of being frustrated with it.

It's such a little thing in the scheme of it all, but makes a huge difference in my daily attitude.
