The new ‘do.
I need to get something off my chest. Or perhaps I should say off my head?
Maybe not. Let’s move on.
I never learned how to properly style my hair. I only know two styles: down and straight, or ponytail. I use Head & Shoulders shampoo, which makes me feel like a middle aged man. Also, I go to Supercuts. Partly because it’s cheap and easy, but mostly because I’m intimidated by hair salons. How to find a stylist, what to ask, who to tip.
I’ve had my hair in a sad little mom bun since Lauren was born, so I finally chopped it to my shoulders. In honor of my new length, I decided to set some hair goals. New hair’s resolutions, if you will.
- Learn how to curl my hair and add volume
- Find the proper products for my type of hair (heavy and straight)
- Experiment with braids and simple updos
- Try a hair salon and decide if it’s worth the expense
Once I tackle these, I’ll be that much closer to a fully fledged adult.
