After walking in to a random threading place and getting an excellent set of new eyebrows for a measly $6, I thought it must be my lucky day. So I walked into Shear Bliss in the Murray Hill/Kips Bay area of Manhattan while walking home from a meeting and asked what the odds were of getting a cut and color right then. As it happened, they were excellent, and I'm very happy with the job Coco did for me. As a new customer, I also got a free haircut and discounted blow dry with the color, for a total of only $95.
As much as I was loving how my hair was growing so long, a) it's summer, b) the long and short layers thing was annoying the crap out of me, and c) I don't think long hair does much for me.
I mean, I'm always pulling it back to get it out of my face, and I'm too lazy to use a curling iron or straighteners on it very often, even though I tell myself, "Well, I can STYLE long hair in such pretty ways!" Except that I don't. Hair that just hangs there, looking average, is the ugliest hair of all.
I'm pretty sure this length also makes the most of my bone structure and eyes (or at least that's what lots of people tell me.) As for the color, it's a dark chocolate like I naturally had as a child. Coco informed me that my natural hair color now is not, as I have claimed for years, light brown. She said it's a dark blond. I say let's just call it mousy and leave it at that. So I especially love the darker shade I've got now, which goes best with my coloring.
What a fortunate day. Shame I didn't buy a lottery ticket.
