So, as people around me know, my hair gets to a certain point when I decide that I must either hack it off myself or get it cut professionally. When I was in college, I had a cute haircut (I loved my salon in Columbia, Missouri, Varsity Clips! Well-priced, and they always did a great job!) with shoulder-length layered hair and side-swept bangs. Loved it. After Christmas, my bangs started growing out, so I decided to cut them myself. I thought they turned out okay, and I went with it for awhile.

Last year, my hair got so long and annoying, that when my parents went to Kansas for our family reunion (Sis and I had to work), while on a break from our Harry Potter movie marathon, sis and I got our hair cut.

Well, I was in the same boat last weekend. For the last month or so, I've been waiting for my hair to DO something (Sometimes, if I wait long enough, it does something. Mainly in the winter. Maybe in the summer, it's too humid), but it never did. It was time to take drastic measures.
Last Friday after work, I went to THREE different Salons, but each had about an hour long wait. Deciding to just forgo the haircut that particular night, I went to Walgreens and got hair dye instead. Decided to go red again. Not a super-bright red, but a warm mahogany color. I think it'll look nice. Going to dye it when I visit my sister at my aunt's house this weekend (yes, pictures and blog to follow).
Saturday morning, I went to the eye doctor, got new glasses (that I have to wait 7-10 days for. *pouts*) and then went to Great Clips. Not too long of a wait, but I'm not sure if I'd go back there. It was way more expensive than I'd originally intended ($50 for cut/shampoo/straighten?! Varsity Clips did it for $35, PLUS and eyebrow wax!), plus, I feel like my stylist didn't really realize I was in her chair. She kept talking to people besides me, she didn't know why I was there (they put it into the system when I got there), and when she realized I wanted a style, she seemed to be annoyed that I wasn't done yet. Yeah. I need to find another Varsity Clips-type place. I loved it there.
Anyway, it is a nice hair cut. But two hours is a long time for just a cut/style. Just saying.

- Have a favorite haircut/style that you prefer your hair to be cut as?
- Ever have a bad stylist experience? How about a great one?
