The Worse The Haircut, The Better The Man

..besides, bad haircut grows back in time. Well, I had my hair cut yesterday.

Once a year I make the dreaded trip to the hairdresser and get it over with.  I regret every each one of them. I have yet to encounter someone who can cut my hair exactly how I want it. I let it done in my country, in the UK, in Spain… same result.

C’mon, how difficult a layered style with an asymmetric pony can be?  I want the layer to be pronounced, textured not blunt, I want the ends to be thinly sliced, the edges jagged,  I want the hair framing my face in layers, shorter near my eyes and getting longer as it goes down my shoulders. I want a V cut view from the back. I also want the layers to blend, not choppy. Is that too much to ask?

I don’t want it to be cute or momsy. I want my hair to have more schwung, movements, edge, character, for crying out loud.  If I can detach my head from my body, I have done it already so I can cut my hair the way I want because I can.

I am even willing to make a compromise.

What I really want is one of those anime warriors’ haircuts with multi-colored layers. Probably in the deep shade of burgundy or purple but I know that at my age (why I didn’t think of that sooner when I still can) it is a bit of a stretch and besides that kind of hairstyles need maintenance every six weeks or so and I am not willing to do the effort, costs time and money. So, I am willing to settle for the more boring version but boring doesn’t mean tasteless altogether.

What I have now is a more modern (according to the hairdresser) version of my long hair (means shorter)  something you might see on an eleven or sixteen years old, or older domesticated woman who lives somewhere in the mountains and have no idea about fashion or emancipation (I know it is just an idea and yet to fully become a reality but) somebody who is soft and sweet and happy.

In short not me.

Tomorrow if the sun shines (I need plenty/good natural light) I will remodel and reshape my hair closer to how I think/envision it supposed to be like I always do every time I came back from the hair salon.

Wish me luck.
