About three months ago I wanted to do something different with my hair. It had been long for so many years (and I’ve never dyed it) that I wanted something different. I thought about dyeing it, but decided against it. I embrace my grays, people.
So I cut my hair. In a moment of temporary insanity, I lopped a good 6 inches off. Why I thought this was a good idea, I will never know. I love having long hair. And I mean long hair. It was about 4 inches from my waist when I cut it.
My hair is still, by most standards, pretty darn long. It’s not like I gave myself a pixie cut. But I know long hair. I am comfortable with long hair. This just-below-shoulder-length stuff is for the birds.
For quite some time, I didn’t do anything with my hair. I wasn’t quite sure what to do with it. Case in point:
Yeah. I am one with the hair clips.
But I am starting to get back into the swing of things. This past week I have been a pincurlin’ fool. Normally I rag curl, but my hair tangles horribly. I thought I’d give pin curls another go. In these photos I used pin curls simply to curl my hair – I didn’t brush them out. The results were fan-freaking-tastic.
At some point I’ll throw up (oh my goodness. Not throw up as in ‘vomit’, but ‘throw up’ as in ‘post’. Learn English, woman!) a tutorial post on rag and pin curls, if anybody’s interested. If not, well then, I’ll do one anyway. It’s my blog and I’ll pin curl if I want to.
