A Haircut

I had a great friend that used to cut my hair in Alaska. When I went to have my hair cut it was partly for the great cut and partly for catching up with a friend. Then I moved away. It is hard to work up the nerve to trust someone new with your hair and the awkward silences that come with someone new in your personal space. So when I moved here I avoided getting my hair cut at all for about 9 months-- with the exception of chopping my own bangs. The first thing I did when I went back to Alaska for a visit was to go see my friend for a haircut. It has now been another 6 months and my hair has been driving me crazy. So this afternoon I went into a salon nearby and hoped for the best. I wanted a new style and much shorter. Here were the results. Not too bad, I think. It will take a little getting used to because I have had much longer hair for the last few years. And I typically wear it curly, but they wanted to straighten it for the cut. It looks pretty good straight. I just don't think I will take the time on most days.

Wow, Carrie! That is a really stylish cut! I can't imagine straightening it every day either, but, it really shows off your beautiful face! I think I am off to the Barber - yes, barber, again. He is 20 dollars cheaper than the hair salon. He shaves my face too, if I want. I don't want.

Hi Carrie..you look so great, so KAWAII !!
It is so timely topic to me.. that's exactly what I am going to do ! Yesterday I finally made up my mind to go get my hair cut for the first time in 8 months and called a new salon to make a reservation for tomorrow . I think I don't want to go to a place like that if I can stay beautiful with doing nothing!! ... don't you think so? especially when a salon is NOT a comfortable place for you ...
I know I am lazy :) keiko

I LOVE it! It looks great...I'm assuming you have to straighten it to get it like that? The price we pay for beauty. :) I am missing you friend!

Hey, I like it--and not just because it makes us look even more alike. :)
Here's my hair tip for the day...I don't like straightening mine all the time either. I have found that I can dry it (either on it's own or with a little blow drying help) and then I just straighten the top layer. It gives about the same effect with a ton less effort. So, there you go... Love you tons!

I love Tammy back in Sterling and it makes me sad to be half way around the world from her. I've given in and had two haircuts in Nairobi. Neither were disasterous but niether were nearly as stellar as yours either. Two different places and two different cuts. Sigh, the last one is closer though. I'll give her another shot with more detailed instructions next time.

You look fabulous, Carrie! Love it!
