Réponds à ma tendresse, réponds à ma tendresse

Just 2 days until Movin' Day! It makes me extremely uncomfortable that I still do not own a bed, mattress, or any shelving. x___x

In 3 days, I have an appointment for a haircut and color with Ivy, a stylist I am so happy to have found early on in my college career. I've given her quite a bit of business over 3 years. Somehow, she takes my wishy-washy instructions and gives me something age-appropriate, flattering, and easy to style EVERY TIME! Best part? She charges $30 for a haircut. She gets us college kids so well. <3

I wasn't going to be able to afford a haircut for another few months, but Mom is paying for this one! She thinks I need a new look, and I agree. I like change, and I've been annoyed by the maintenance that comes with having very long hair. Mine is wavy (even curly in places), and I haven't been putting in the effort it takes to style it to its full advantage. I love long hair, and I may come back to it in a few years, but I need a break.

The only things that scare me about short hair are 1) bad hair days (which happen with all lengths, but are not curable by ponytail when you have short hair) and 2) headband crimping when I need it out of my face for art.
I've had it all, though...short of shaving my head or dying outside of natural colors. It's all good as long as you don't get too attached to your hair. It's just an accessory, and there's no point in having it if you don't have fun with it.

What I'm thinking for Friday:



It's hard to look at a photo and ignore the lighting, makeup, pose, etc., but I like these haircuts. I'm thinking something around chin-length, with heavy layering, feathered, and very short in the back. It'll be nice to shave my blow-drying to a lean 5 minutes <3
