I got my hair cut yesterday for the first time since August 2010. I tend to cut it short then let it grow for up to a year and a half before chopping it again. These pictures show the remains of the stylist’s work from the day before. The results of my own styling will be less sleek and perfect, since “my own styling” usually means showering at night, sleeping on it wet, and brushing it in the morning. My hair does show weird wavy ducktail things in the back when it air dries (which is all of the time).
The color is the same natural color that grows out of my head. It just looks darker in the After pictures because of the dusk lighting. Or maybe the bottom portions that got cut off actually were lighter due to the longer time being sunbleached?
Assuming I do start exercising again, it’s back to little pigtails while working out until it’s long enough for a single ponytail, maybe late spring.
