I have had long hair all my life and have never really ventured into the unknown. As far as I can remember, my hair was cut short 3 times in my life.
- About a few days before my Aunt’s wedding, and I was due to be a flower girl, my brother and I were alone at home. I was about 8 years old (and him 12years old) and he came up with this really fun idea of playing “Barber-barber”, him being the Barber of course. I diligently sat down at his “Barber shop” which was conveniently located in our lounge, and I watched in amazement as my long hair fell to the floor, with each snip from my Mom’s kitchen scissors. My hair went from lower-back-length to uneven bob in the space of 10 minutes and I was happy with the result, as was my “Barber”….till my Mom came home that was. Saving us from a “good hiding” was the fact that I looked really ridiculous, I guess. After laughing at my uneven, zig-zag hairdo, Mom quickly took me to a hairdresser to fix the mess and that’s how I got to sport a short bob for my Aunt’s wedding!
- The second time was after I matriculated, I got what everyone knows as the Victoria Beckham bob… but those in the know, knows that I had it first. J It was actually a mistake to be honest. Being the non-daring type with my hair, I initially wanted a “safe”, layered bob; something conservative.I described what I wanted but it seems that the hairdresser had her own idea of what I wanted, in mind. She kept snipping and snipping away and I watched in horror as more and more chunks of my hair fell to the floor. I kept thinking “Jeez, that’s too short! No way is this length good for my wavy hair!” But I sat in silence and watched like a guinea pig! Needless to say, when she dried it, it was gorgeous and I loved it!
- A few months later, my do needed a touch-up. Armed with no picture and unable to describe my previous cut, being that it was a MISTAKE, I was left with a haircut that was longer on the one side than the other. I was told that it was something that Zelda from Sabrina the teenage witch sported!
- And now… I have braved the odds and decided to get a fringe. I say brave the odds because I have a small forehead and as many a fellow small fore-headed person would know, fringes are a no-no!!!! Taking everything into consideration I was ready for this change. I wanted a fringe and my trusty hairdresser was going to give it to me! I consulted him before cutting and he advised me, taking my hair texture, face shape, hair length and of course small forehead into account. I showed him the 3 pictures of what I had in mind…
…but he said that he had his own idea in mind and told me that I should let him be… which I did. Because I trust him… and only him!
And this was the result…
Now my weird hairline can be hidden… for a while.
