I am one of those women who hates getting her hair done. I'm never really comfortable in a salon. It seems strange to have someone focusing all their energy on me and I get intimidated and shy. Plus, my hair is stick straight and kind of puffy and it only really does one thing (look vaguely straggly), no matter how it's cut. Because of that, it seems that no matter where I go, no matter how much (or how little) I pay, I'm never completely satisfied.
So... I picked up the scissors and cut my own hair. And you know what? I don't hate it. All I did was trim my bangs and sort of angle the rest of it into a basic pageboy, but I am super happy with the way it came out.
I'm loving how easy it is to style: a few minutes with the curling iron and I'm done! I haven't tried hot sticks or roller setting it yet, but I'm hoping it will come out well.
