Welcome to this week's edition of Friend Fridays, sponsored by ModlyChic.
1. How often do you get your hair cut?
These days, I get my hair trimmed every 5-6 weeks. Short hair requires it!
2. Do you go to the same stylist each time, try someone new, go to the cheap hair cutting chains or live it up in a salon?
I have gone to the same stylist for about 8 years.
I started seeing her at one salon, then followed her to her house when she quit the salon. Then I followed her to her next salon, and now we are back at her house.
My first appointment with her, I had shoulder-length hair when I walked in. Now, everyone knows you don't go to a new stylist and ask for a totally different haircut. You just ask for a trim + see how they do so you can assess their skills.
I went in armed with a coupla pictures and asked for her to shop it all off. The devilish sparkle in her eye let me know that we would long be friends.
I love my hairdresser, and I travel an hour from my house, just so I can keep seeing her!
3. Do you color your hair? How often? What’s your natural color?
I love coloring my hair! I have played with my hair color since high school!
I don't always dye it the same color, and I'm not currently coloring my hair, but I have something in mind... if I do it, you know it will end up on the blog!
4. The one thing you always do to keep your hair looking great is:
It's funny to me today that I am sporting a pixie cut, because all through my life growing up, I wanted hair that reached the floor. Seriously. I got a trim MAYBE once a year, and I just loved having super-long hair.I never had a really style, it was just long.
Then, one day in high school, we had a fire drill. It was late autumn/early winter. A friend of mine was looking at me funny and looking up into the sky. I asked her what was going on, and she said she thought it was snowing, because there was white stuff in my hair. Not dandruff, thankfully, but it wasn't much better -- my hair had so many split ends that my friend thought it was snow. That's when I knew I needed to take better care of my hair. Ever since then, I have had my hair trimmed on a regular basis.
5. What hair trend do you love and wish you could rock?
Honestly, despite the fact that I haven't had long hair since high school, I have been dreaming of long hair again. Ponytails, french braids, topknots... I have been considering growing my hair out long again, just to play with it for a little while, and then maybe chop it all off so I could donate it.
Maybe I will!
