Jonathan thinks it’s hilarious when I plop down in his chair and announce, “I need help.” This happens about every other time I get my hair cut, and it’s my own fault, because I wait so long between cuts that by the time I go in I’m completely sick of every strand of hair on my head. Of course, yesterday was no different.
I told him I was disgusted with my hair and that I was thinking about chopping it all off and I was thinking about more layers and I was thinking about fewer layers and I was thinking about swoopy bangs but I didn’t want to be stuck with a whole head of swoopy bangs especially if they didn’t work out and so on and so forth until he stopped me. He thought the swoopy bangs could work but we wanted to keep them versatile.
We ended up compromising with what Jonathan dubbed The Accessory.
The Accessory is a section of one of my front layers that’s about an inch wide and is now cut on an angle, shorter than the rest of my hair, and blended in with its original layer. It can be sort of like bangs or I can blend it completely. As with nearly everything Jonathan’s ever done to my hair, it’s awesome. I also have a few more layers and my hair is currently deliciously flippy.
Sadly, I do not yet have pictures. I’ll get one taken soon.
I heard some disturbing news while I was getting my hair done yesterday. It seems that the mullet is making a comeback. At least, this was the chatter amongst the stylists at my salon yesterday. Maybe everyone else in the world already knows that the mullet is making a comeback and I’m the last to know. Maybe the stylists at my salon are on crack. But they swear the mullet is making a comeback, and although I’m horrified, I can’t say I’m surprised.
Jonathan and I agreed that it’s going to start out as an ironic hipster thing, if it hasn’t already, and next thing you know everyone will have one. Kind of like the molestor mustaches that have been cropping up everywhere.
I am so not down with this.
