I don’t have bad hair days…I just have plain old BAD HAIR. It’s baby fine, very thin, mousy and very uncooperative. There’s not much one can do with this kind of hair. I have almost always stuck to a bob which can look limp and plain. And it gets pretty boring after years of the same style. I search through hairstyle books to find something that will work, but did you ever notice that they always use models with great hair…thick and luscious….the kind I only dream of.
Lucky for me I have a niece that is a hairdresser. Not just any hairdresser. She is a miracle worker. I always try to limit her to the bob for fear that anything else will be a disaster, and she has always reluctantly complied to my wishes.
But this time when I had my hair appointment, she told me she had been looking at my hair and thought she wanted to do something a little different. So I let go of my fear and sat back and let her do the thing that she does so well.
She decided to deepen the color and put a few foils in front for highlights.
Then came the cut. She was training a new girl, so she explained and showed how to create a stacked cut in the back and just how to work it in to blend the line with the front.
I watched as she worked her magic and transformed my limp mousy hair into a trendy hairstyle. I love it and so does everyone else. They keep telling me I look 10 years younger.
So today I am very happy!! Not only because I have a trendy new cut, but also because I’ve had the privilege of watching my niece grow from a little girl chopping away at all her Barbie dolls hair into a beautiful career woman living her dream of having her own salon.
