Note to self (and anyone out there considering a haircut):
Don't go into a haircut and just randomly explain what you want and expect the hairdresser to magically just do exactly what you have envisioned in your mind.
It won't work.
Bring a picture of what you want and don't be afraid that it might be bad manners to say "STOP!" if those scissors get close to your scalp in the back.
The good thing is that I don't really think about how depressing it is...
until I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror...
So, on the agenda today:
Go buy some really big earrings to take away attention from the hair.
