DIY Hair Cut

24 Apr

I’ve been currently debating about growing my hair out out vs. getting it cut again and the back was beginning represent David Bowie in Labyrinth. So being the rash woman I am, I cut it.

Without a mirror to see the back.

I thought it might be uneven, so I came out of the bathroom and asked Aaron what he thought. Was it terribly uneven? His face went TOTALLY blank and he said, “Uhhh, I’m not sure. It seems to be going that way” *insert dramatic gesture at an angle*

At that point, I kind of freaked out and handed him the scissors to have him even it up. He got that dreaded “deer in the headlights” look and had to take a few moments to compose himself. That didn’t help my freak out mode, but he swallowed his fear and evened the back bottom up. I then grabbed the camera and held it out behind my head and snapped a picture. That was the first glimpse I had of the back and it didn’t reduce me to ears.

To be honest, I don’t think it was that bad to begin with.

So, here’s the current new look and I think I’m liking it. Still don’t know if I’m growing it out, though…

As successful as this was, I don’t think I’ll be doing it again. My blood pressure isn’t worth it.

      Thanks! Your hair doesn’t grow fast with pregnancy? Mine never did and I felt ripped off.

    WHEW! It’s good.

    But seriously girl. It’s like $10 at SuperCuts . Don’t make me take those scissors away!

    (I cannot have those thinning shears in the house. I would be bald. LOVE those things!!)

      Yeah, I know. It’s just nearly impossible to get away without either child right now and I got tired of putting it off. Mullets are not attractive on me.

      Didn’t you once put all your hair in a ponytail on top of your head and cut it (with success) to make layers?
