I'm getting my hair cut today. I don't know why I always get hand-wringy about it and spend so much time mentally rehearsing what I'll ask for: not only does my stylist ALWAYS give me a cut I like, but I ALWAYS get pretty much the same thing. There is no need to post a photo of my haircut, because it is just "the same as the last time I posted a photo of myself with a new haircut." I get it cut as short as it can be without going above the hairline, and I tuck it behind my ears, and I like for it to have potentially flippy ends. She always asks me questions as we go along, and I always say, "Uhhhhhhh...." and then she says, "Why don't we....?" and I leap on her suggestion with relief.
The only thing I would change about my stylist is that I wish she were more CHATTY. I like the kind of stylist where I can sit back and say, "Oh!" and "Really!" and "My goodness!" and "Tsk!" as a river of chat (ideally gossipy chat) washes over me. I find it soothing. Otherwise I sit there in the silence feeling like I should make conversation, my mind frantically searching for something---anything!---to talk about. Last time I even resorted to discussing the haircuts of Katie Holmes and Victoria Beckham. But I'm not switching: I've had chatty stylists who should have been focusing more of their attention on TEH HAIR, so I'll keep the awk silence and the consistently good cuts.
I have been thinking of going back to bangs. I can't believe I'm even considering it, after the ordeal that was growing them out, and after revisiting those old photos of me where the bangs are parted like the Red Sea because of my cowlicks. I guess I'm not REALLY considering it.
