Remember when I got my hair cut like this? That was back in the winter of 2008. I went from all plain long hair to short bob and blunt bangs. It was so much fun but far from low maintenance and impossible to take care of. All flat when you don’t blow dry, and all puffy with wild frizz in summer heat. Hilarious. And then maintenance! Get it trimmed every three weeks or…

…risk bangs that dare to literally clip away at your vision!

After that cut, I grew both hair and bangs out. It got longer and longer. At my shoulders, past my shoulders. It wasn’t until I looked in the mirror last week and realized that it was now elbow length. Time for a cut! I go to Sei-Tomoko on W4th St (Pierre goes to Sei-Tomoko on 13th St, but I like the W4th one better). I wanted a crazy cut, something adventurous like that bob. Let’s do it! Shampoo and condition is included in the cut ($50), plus hot tea and shoulder massage. Heaven. The hairdresser took out scissors and just as she was about to make that first snip, I chickened out:

“Maybe just a trim instead?”

We compromised. She knocked off a good three inches. And now I feel a little less like a shaggy dog. The only problem is that it’s too short to put in a proper bun! Ponytails and hair down for now. Perhaps we’ll bob it back the next time around ;)

    I cannot believe I am saying this on your blog… but that is a really cheap haircut!!! HA! I usually spend between $70-$80 on a basic haircut… excluding the tip… AND no tea… or massage :( It is also time for me to trim a few inches off my hair… I am extremely lazy when it comes to hair care. Maybe in another month I will be ready…

    Hi Stephanie! Ahaha it is a really good deal! I definitely splurge on some things, and go super cheap with other things ;) Was plesantly surprised w/prices the first time I went, but happy with the results, and just kept going back. It will be 5 years w/ Sei-Tomoko now!

    Your hair is beautiful, and I don't blame you for keeping it! I took the plunge a few months back and donated the 23 inches I got cut to Locks of Love. I tend to do it every 3 or so years, but this time, I waited 5–way too long, but I (literally) had gotten attached. ;) My new pixie cut is a sigh of relief, and I love love love it–it's youthful but mature, so easy but still put-together.

    Hi Kat! Oo I didn't even think about that…will do next time after I grow it back out again!!Hi Julie! Thank you! 23 inches?! Wow – that is impressive! Must have been such a change to go from that long to pixie cut…don't you love how much "lighter" it feels…I didn't realize how heavy my hair was until I got that bob! :)
