I Think I Have Lost My Identity????

OK so I still know who I am I think but I had to go to a new hair stylist and she works a bit differently than my last girl. She washes the hair, cuts the hair, straightens curly unruly hair (that's me) and then cuts it again. And you are done. Out the door with straight hair. When I left the salon I swear I didn't even recognize me in the rear view mirror. My daughters liked it. Dan liked it. My co-workers liked it.....

What is really funny is that I can actually do it myself and it looks OK. Not me but OK.

Even funnier, today I just did the old usual thing with my hair. I washed it, dried it with the diffuser like I used to. I put some gel in it and scrunched. Like old times. However, it looked awful. Not the old me. Not the new me. Who is me?

The great thing about hair is it grows back and it's pretty easy to change.

You get to try out new yous without super long term commitment.

Hope you find a 'do that works for you.

I agree with "K". That is the fun part about hair... You can change your look as often and as dramatic as you want. I bet it looks great!!!

I still amazed by the part where you said you can do the new look yourself!

Sounds like it just might be a temporary thing..til you figure out all your "dos" :)

After a lifetime of stick-straight hair, my hair got curly when I had my daughter. I always do the "product-scrunch-go" deal just like you do, and I really like my hair. But, everyone around me is straightening theirs. Even my regular stylist wondered last time if I wanted her to straighten it for me! I was like, "no, because I will never, ever take the time to do it like that again" - geez, the beauty of curly hair is that it's wash and wear!! Even if that makes me rebellious, eh?
