So I had my “once a year” haircut the other day and once again I am reminded as to why I only go once a year and why I was slightly nervous that day.
As many of you know I have long hair that I love and am savouring for as long as I can before it gets old and scraggly and I have to have the chop.
I discuss with her that I wanted nothing off the length and just wanted shape, shorter layers and style.
All seemed cool, she was a beautiful sweet girl and I felt safe in her hands. Whilst cutting she asked:
“Do people often ask you if your hair is real?
To which I answered:
“Why yes, yes they do..
I always wonder if that means
- it looks like skanky extensions, or
- it’s just long and they wonder if it’s real.
She told me that my hair was gorgeous, I felt proud and she continued to cut.
Whilst cutting, a new client sat next to me and was having clip in extensions put in. I enquired about them as I had read the other day that Kim Kardashian has them in (ahh that’s why her hair looks so full).
I was quite interested as although my hair is nice and long it is also quite flat and I could do with some vavavoom.
At the end of my haircut she put the clip-ons in for me to see what they felt like (see the picture above – what do you think?). I loved them but for $220 after already have spent $150 for a cut and colour I couldn’t justify it. I would have to wait and save up for them… maybe…
This is where the dissolution begun though. After she took the extensions out I had a quick look in the mirror, the cut looked good and I left and headed home. It was at home that I realised my hair had been thinned out dramatically! It now looked like I did have skanky extensions in!! What had she done?? The top half looks great, the bottom half/my length looks ughh *insert sad face here*
Did she cut it this way so I would buy them? No she was so nice, that can’t be… Is this the look going these days?
So now I am sad. My fears of the hairdresser once again confirmed. Oh and now saving up for clip-ons as it would take years for my hair to get back to how it was.
If anyone knows of some good clip-ons at a good price and a good hairdresser plleeassse let me know..
I won’t be getting my hair cut again for a while that’s for sure.
