So I started cutting it myself. I just hacked into it. I figured I couldn't really make it worse, and miraculously it worked! I layered the crap out of it, thinned it by cutting up into it, and stopped treating it well. Immediately the compliments started up again and I even got requests to cut other peoples hair. I am now cutting, Edward Scissor Hands style, 8 people's hair regularly and they love it. I honestly have NO IDEA what I am doing, but perhaps my degree in sculpture (clay!) has helped me with hair proportions or something.
Why do I bring this up now. Well, my husband bought me a bunch of new tools as an early Christmas gift (razor combs, thinning shears, razor other thingys, just a bunch of random things) and I was bored over the weekend and just went to town on myself. It LOOKED great yesterday, but today It was a little crazy (hence the pony tail). Uh oh. Well see how it goes tomorrow. (oh and a side note: my girl recently moved BACK and brings her kid to my kid's preschool. I have seen her a couple times, but strangely its like seeing an exboyfriend or something. I am nervous to talk to her in case she thinks my hair sucks now. especially now that I may have given myself a mullet.)
