Going to the hair salon #sol21

I finally got my hair cut after more than a year. I’ve been so hesitant to venture into a hair salon, even after being vaccinated. I’ve continued to be cautious about the places I go. However, my hair was beginning to get on my nerves. It was a long, stringy mess and something had to be done, so I made the appointment.

When I left the salon, I felt like a completely different person. I’m not sure how many inches were cut off, but it felt like several pounds worth of hair! I loved how my hair looked and felt.

However, by the next morning, when I went to style my hair, I just couldn’t get it to look nearly as nice. I tried and I tried, spending more time in front of the bathroom mirror working on my hair than I usually did. I blowed my hair and brushed and brushed, but nothing seemed to help. It had looked so pretty when I strolled out of the salon, but no matter what I did, I just couldn’t replicate it.

This always seems to happen. When I get my hair cut and styled, it looks nice until I have to try to replicate the look. Then it goes right back to how it always looked. I’ve never been able to do much with my hair and it’s so frustrating!

    We all feel that way, Jen. Every time I have my hair done, I always ask my stylist (a young man just turning 30, LOL!) “Will you come to my house at 5:45 AM so I can look like this again?” I wish! Congrats on taking that first step towards normal!

    I always hated that — how I could never get my hair to do the same thing it did for the stylist. I do love that feeling of walking out with a new haircut though. I hope you make it do something you like! I’m sure it still looked great!

    Ugh, yes, I hate that! I always feel like a million bucks when I walk out of the salon, and then I can never relive the moment when I’m left up to my own devices. Congrats to you though! I still haven’t ventured out to the salon. Even my mom was becoming frustrated with my hair; I have now let her cut my hair twice during quarantine ha!
