[So I'm totally going to need a new default avatar photo soon, aren't I?]

Got my hair cut today. I'm more sure than in December that this one's going to work for me. I might not end up loving it (still getting used to it, obviously), but I think I'm not going to hate it and it's not going to constantly annoy me, so yay.

This is the result of a Deva Curly cut. It took two hours. Some consultation (and I had a picture, which helped, although what I ended up with is pretty far from the picture...in a good way) first. Then cut, dry, which was time intensive. Then a wash, and trimming of bits that weren't falling right. After that a dry under the diffuser, followed by some final adjustments (including a segment that really wasn't looking quite right).

Throughout the process, my stylist, Katie, was really great about communicating to make sure we were going in the direction I wanted. Especially when she was going to do something different than the photo, because it made more sense for my hair or was actually more what I wanted. Great experience.

Admittedly, my wallet's not thanking me right now, but my shoulders are. Totally worth it. Citrus Salon & Spa in Canton, CT. Recommend.

First, here is the aforementioned reference photo. Hotlinking is evil, so you'll have to click through.

Here are some photos. If you want you can see the whole flickr set as well.

Should be straightforward and easy to maintain, too.

... it works, in a mildly surprising way. Very nice!

I had to get over the initial shock, but I like it quite a lot!

I can say with nearly 100% confidence that this is true (not 100% only because this is an uncertain world in which we live). Just wait until you wash it the first time -- I notice that I use less shampoo when I get my hair cut, so I can just imagine how striking it will be for you. And time-to-dry-hair should also be astonishingly shorter.

You know these things, I realize, so I'll stop enthusing about them. But I'm glad the new hair cut, and the process of getting it especially, was such a good experience! Though my hair is not nearly so curly as yours, I may one day try a Deva Curly cut.
