I Made a Call

Thanks to Jen's post on getting her hair cut, I've been doing a lot of thinking. I've decided that I need to get mine cut too. I usually get a hair cut and perm after school is out, but this year I was sort of just putting it off.

But the time has come.

The girl that has done my annual appointment has worked at three different salons since I've been going to her. And I obviously follow her because she knows my hair. She takes very thorough notes on my hair during each visit and refers to them when I come in.

Yesterday I tried to call the place that Tia was last working, but got an answering machine. I didn't leave a message though, since I wasn't sure if she was still working there or not. I just tried to call again and actually got to talk to someone. She said that Tia is only there at that salon through July, so I just asked her to have Tia give me a call when she comes in tomorrow.

I'm ready for a change.

I'm getting O-L-D and my hair needs to take a new direction. I need to quit the ponytail thing and actually do something a little different.

I'm thinking about about something simple with a cut, almost to my shoulders, with a side part and bangs, yes I said BANGS. I haven't had bangs since I was in 6th grade, but it might be time to revisit them. I also want color...maybe even highlights too! There's way too much gray showing and I might just have to move from the "good for up to 28 shampoos" to the "permanent hair color" YIKES!!

My only requirement is going to be that it's just long enough to put back in a ponytail for when I'm home and not going anywhere. I can't give the ponytail up completely.

Oh, I miss my ponytail so much. It will be back soon, I hope.

I have shoulder length hair -- well maybe a bit longer now -- and I never think to put it in a pony tail.
