I need help.
I’ve been growing my hair out for over a year just so I can have long glossy hair and feel accomplished. Well, here I am. Hair is inching it’s way down my back each month and is the longest it’s been in 20 years. And I’m kind of over it. But it is neat! But it’s so long that even in a ponytail it lays on my neck and back. And when I roll over in my sleep I either smother myself in my own hair or whip/flip so hard that my bed partner gets whacked in the face.
Half of the time I think it looks like this:
And the other half I think it looks like this:
Really, it looks like this:
It’s just hanging around, being brown, long and pretty. It’s fine. But….I’m kind of thinking of a change and that’s where I need help.
I want color!
But maybe in an ombre style!
Or hiding underneath!
And then I might want to cut it!
Or just lighten it with a bunch of layers!
Or heavy bangs!
I’m sure I could keep going, but you get the idea. (Which is that I have no idea.)
To further complicate matters, I don’t have a stylist! I do, but I don’t. It’s hard for me to make a big drive to get my hairs did and I want to fall in love with someone near my downtown OKC office so that routine maintenance isn’t such a hassle.
1. Which salon and/or person should I patron for my new ‘do?
2. Tell me what ‘do I should do. Feel free to post links to pic in the comments, tell me of coloring horror stories, or tell me how adding a purple streak in your locks gave you such joy that your life was reinvigorated. Not that I need my life reinvigorated…just my hair.
