Hair has ears

Call me crazy if you want, but I'm pretty convinced that my hair has ears. Have you ever noticed that when you are having a bad hair day you end up cursing your hair and it never gets better. It's because it hears you and doesn't appreciate the comments. Have you ever noticed that once you decide to get your haircut it magically starts to cooperate and look amazing? Yup, you got it.... it heard you and is trying to persuade you otherwise! That's been the case here. My hair is super thick and has been styled the same way for several years now b/c the layers just seem to work. I got it really chopped off last summer and no one but me seemed to like it, and then I got weirded out that I may look like a boy, so I let it grow back out.

I've been sick and tired of my hair lately. It's getting poofier in the summer heat, and I hate having to run a straightener through it to make it look decent. It really just feels like a thick puff sitting on my head. Granted, it's a lot better than what it used to be a while back in high school.... eeeek... the unmentionables!!! So, Kate decides she's going to get her hair cut, and I start considering it too. Then, I say to myself, ok, let's do it. I make the call, and schedule the appointment. The day I made the appointment was a VERY ROUGH hair day because I had no time to style it b/c I was chasing Gizzy around and cleaning up an accident she had. So, I came home after work and took a shower before going out for dinner and my hair was fabulous. I mean, almost to the point of a Pantene commercial (even though my hair would NEVER look that good!) What's the deal hair? Did I scare ya? Huh? Huh? Why don't you stop being a punk and just cooperate?!!

So, today I'm getting my hair cut and I'm letting the stylist have free reign. This is a bold move for me because my hair is very peculiar and set in its ways, and it's a stylist I've never seen before. We'll see how it goes!!!
