My Hair Tragedy | 3+ Hair Colors in One Week

I was recently asked:

Have you ever had a hair tragedy? What was it? How did you recover from it?

Cause I’m (Scissor) Happy!

I couldn’t help myself; I started out faded, then I felt like I needed something else…SHAPE (or something)! I couldn’t leave my hair the same length on all sides, so I decided to visit the salon for one more cut!



My Inspiration

When I showed my BFF (a licensed cosmetologist) an image of the cut that inspired me, she advised me to request a 90 degree cut from whomever executed the cut. A 90 degree cut will basically result in a layered look. Going from arm pit length (APL) to whatever the resulting length was going to be, was like entering the unknown. Mind you, I’d never met this stylist before so I didn’t have any idea of her level of expertise or if she had any talent cutting hair. I haven’t decided if the move was bold, crazy, stupid, or all three!
