Me cropped

Initial thoughts:

I’ve anticipated this cut for a couple of months now. I did my research, found some barber shops in NY and ultimately went with a shop in Brooklyn which came highly recommended. The stylist was very accommodating and offered great customer service. I had some idea that I wanted to keep some length and was curious to see how that worked out. Well, it’s been 2 days and has taken some time to grow on me. First, I kept joking that the cut is kind of “90’s sitcom Mom.” I love the layers and how it goes from short to long like a bob but I’m not used to short cuts with hair hanging down in my face. And now that my curls are short and cropped in the back I notice how the front’s curl pattern has been heat damaged. Me no like. So, in about a couple of weeks I’m going to go ahead and cut the middle/front down shorter so that it hangs off my face and see how I like that. I wanted something that I could wear straight and curly, but in reality I want more of a wash and go that’s not going to take 20 minutes to style in the morning. This style still requires more maintenance than I prefer. So, I’m not 100% happy with the cut, but I can always go shorter so that’s a great thing. I do love the back and hair off my neck, however.



Have you made any changes physically this Spring?

    I’m happy that you’re in a great space in your life. Me-not so much still battling suicidal thoughts from time to time but I hate the idea of relying on an anti-depressant to feel better. I pray and read the word and other people pray for me as well…I even go to therapy but somehow that voice creeps in every so often …

    Sorry to steal your joy I’m only sharing because I know you can relate

    1. We all get to those tough places, but I suppose, “trial and error” our own personal ways to cope. I hope you’re seeking different ways or a combination of ways to manage the depression and negative thoughts. If you’re in that “place” for longer than a couple of months, I would suggest trying something different, even if it’s not preferred (like anti-depressants.) You’re important, and so is seeking the custom-fit care you need.
