I'm seeing a new hair person on Thursday. I'm sick of looking. I really want to settle down. He sounds amazing and I really want things to work out between us. I want to have a lasting, productive relationship. I really want to establish a standing appointment. Having a standing hair appointment will be some grown-ass-lady stuff. Maybe I'm getting ahead of myself.
I've been creating mood board collages of my hair history. The good and the better.
Sure, it's vain, but it's also hard to create verbal illustrations of how you expect your hair to turn out. I recommend when you're having a good hair day that you photograph it. You don't have to share it with the internet, but save it somewhere you can refer to if you need to meet a new stylist.
I sometimes feel like a little psycho taking all these photos of my hair, but look, they're helpful. I'm really happy I've got this crazy-girl archive to mull back over and decide where to go from here.
Til then, I'm breathing deep and printing, printing, printing examples.
I bet I'm the only person who brings in example photos of myself.
