And no I am not talking about the song by The Cowsills. You younger people can look that up!
I have had the same hair style for several years now and I was ready for a change. Not a drastic change but something different. So Suzanna cut some layers in my hair and I am happy with it. I look forward to styling it in some different ways.
I have to admit that my head feels lighter. Basically this is the old shag hair cut....just not done in curls. I may give that a try just for old times sake.
It seems all my friends are debating the color issue. To Dye or Go Natural. At a certain age, it does become a quandary as to what decision to go with in the hair department. One of my friends decided to quit coloring and she found out that her hair was still a fairly dark brown with enough gray that it just looks frosted. I think it looks very nice on her and woo hoo for natural brown hair.
Another reason some friends are opting for natural locks is the price factor. It is a nice chunk of change to plop down at the salon if you continue coloring. And roots....when I colored my hair, my roots would show in about two weeks. It is good to have hair that grows quickly but no one can or needs to color their hair that often. I have seen the little color wands some people use to cover roots. Those were not available when I colored my hair.
Frankly if I were going to spend a lot of money to look younger, I would have my neck redone. That is the one place that shows age like no other. But as I have said before, I am glad to be here, aging normally in pretty good health. I have some dear cousins and friends who did not get that privilege.
I am thankful to be 64 years old. I am thankful for a dear husband who does not care about gray hair and wrinkles.( he has a few of his own.:)) I am thankful for friends who listen to me whine about changing my hair style. I am thankful for a wonderful hairdresser that makes me look better than I should. I am thankful for blog friends who drop what they are doing to read my silly ramblings.
So I am just going to end this post by stating that I am a mid century modern....if I were an antique I would be pretty valuable!
