I got my hair cut today and I'm very excited to show you my haircut photos.
First, a quick hair history. Basically I've always had long hair. As a kid, long hair was required for gymnastics and dance so we were able to put our hair up in a bun or curl it. Two years in a row I cut it up to my chin after competition season was done. Besides those two years when I was 9 and 10 years old my hair has always been past my shoulders. And it's been long enough to do the Alanis Morrisette (or the Mermaid) for the past six years. I love having my hair long, it was like my favorite accessory. So now you know what a big deal this was, lets get on with the pictures.
The first picture are of me and my long hair. I decided to go to Sound Salon. It's been voted best salon in the city for a few years in a row, plus it's an Aveda Salon so it made me feel more comfortable that the hair stylist had very good training. By recommendation of a friend I choose a young woman named Evelyn to cut my hair. She was so nice and made me feel extremely at easy. I was pretty nervous on the way there but after talking to her she made me feel great about my decision. She also took my hair's texture and my concerns in to consideration and gave me a really great cut. I'm very happy with it. I may possible go back next week for a free bang trim, she suggested I wait so I could get use to the length and then decide if I want fringe or not. I'm so glad I choose her. If you are living in St. John's and looking for a new hair stylist I highly suggest you book an appointment with her. The salon itself was great too!
She gave me a light feathering on the ends, not quite layers. This will help my hair curl naturally when I let it hair dry. It's long enough that I can put it in a ponytail and I was still able to donate 14 inches of hair to Locks of Love. You can't believe how different it felt when she first cut it off. My hair feels so light and so healthy and also thicker but the best feeling is knowing that my hair will help make someone else feel beautiful during their difficult time.
