I wanna do something different with my hair. For a while now. It’s one of the the most annoying things on the whole world. First world’s problems, he? Definitely. But you know when you don’t have any problem with basic needs you’re gonna find something else on the next level (check Maslow’s hierarchy if you’re interested).
But back to the hair problem. I always need some change. And I have this weird thing with not colouring it. Because everybody (my mom, thanks mom) said you didn’t have to do it because it’s bad for you hair, your wallet, your time and anyway you have really nice natural hair colour. You could do it later when it’s necessary when you have a lot of grey/white hair (I could argue with her but what for?). So I haven’t done it. Well… I did it once (with henna) but never again. And since then I have this weird I want to do it/don’t want to do it thing with colouring.
On the other hand. Getting cut or styling differently your hair seems easy. Because you know it’s just hair, it grows back in time. But when you make this urgent decision you always forget how much time is that. More or less 1cm/month. And that’s slow, annoyingly slow. Oh, and did I mention that my hair is wavy? Oh yes, it is. I cannot imagine how’s it with curly hair. OMG.
2 years ago I had this urge to do something with my hair. It was long and nice. But I wanted a bob. The most simple bob. So I had it done. It was fun for a while for a year or so. But then again the urge struck and I started to grow it back. After a few months I went to the hairdresser to make some style changes. But – oh horror – she f…cked it. So there I was with a hair which I didn’t like at all. I had no choice but cut it (again). Short bob style what else.
This was more or less a year ago. Since then I’ve been growing it so now it can reach my collar bones and now I have an appointment with my hairdresser next weekend. I’m exited and I’m afraid too. I don’t wanna start over again. I do not.
And I don’t want to start on how difficult it is to find a good hairdresser especially in a foreign country. I’m full of hopes that’s a problem for another day. We’ll travel back to Hungary to my trusty hairdresser (not the one who screwed it before). And until then I’m crossing my fingers and toes and try to figure out what should I ask for exactly.
Anyway. Here I have some inspiration to chose from.
