A pixie cut? What?!
When I woke up today I had long, luscious, and not-so-healthy hair. It's been dyed and fried quite a few times over the past year and honestly, I was just tired of letting it sit on my head. I had no will or energy to really style it and trying to mess around with french braid up-dos and the like was just frustrating.
So at around 3 pm I skedaddled over to the Model College of Hair Design (just a mere two blocks from my apt.) and asked for a hair cut. My stylist was a junior student named Amber who was REALLY nervous about hacking off so much length. So she had a couple of senior stylists watch over and help out from time to time. Overall, the entire process took about forty-five minutes to an hour. But there was shampooing and styling involved so ....can't complain.
Pardon the face, I was being silly and this one showed off the layers in the best possible angle. I got myself a pixie cut. It's really really short in the back (clipper length 6 short!) and there are some layered bangs in the front. Overall, I really dig it.
I had an audience of about seven people during this haircut and they were all super thrilled about how cute a style it was, how well it suited my bone structure, and that I kind of looked like a model. A super ego boost, that's for sure.
My head feels a lot lighter (duh!) and I'm still getting used to it, but I'm happy with this decision and if I ever need a touch-up I know where I'll be going for it!
