Long hair has its benefits. It was easy to throw it up in a pony-tail, or a bun, or pin the curls into a messy up-do. Long hair also has its negatives. It takes forever to dry. It would get pulled as I slept, or sat in a chair. For me, with this thick head of curls, it also could get hot, and even feel very heavy.
Having not had a cut or color since last spring, I finally made an appointment with my stylist. I found her about three years ago and love her. Tiffany knows curly hair and gives me a Deva cut. I cannot believe how much nicer my curls respond after this type of cut, better than I ever imagined.
Plus, Tiffany is so good, I can tell her what I like, don't like, and the sit in the chair relaxing while she works. So that is what I did yesterday.
I walked in the salon with my hair looking like this:
I explained to Tiffany what my hair care routine is and how I end up wearing it in a bun for most of the week. Then I sat back in the chair, let her color and cut away.
I just love what she did:
Even though winter is still here (yesterday we were in another blizzard warning and the low last night was -19), this new cut put a spring in my step.
