Just Another Hair Meltdown

I hope I'm not the only person in the world who has this issue, but I tend to get hair breakdowns from time to time. I procrastinate & put off hair appointments for a few weeks & then one day... out of nowhere... I need my hair cut right now or I'm going to lose it!!!!

Sometimes it works in my favor because I go crazy & do a walk-in appointment to chop it all off, then feel sassy & empowered. Other times, like yesterday, I don't have time for a hairdresser so I make bad decisions. Let me repeat: Bad Decisions. Yesterday I got a crazy little thought....
You should just cut your own hair. It would be free & you don't need an appointment. I know Lena is the best, but she's been busy. There's no way you'd get an appointment today & we can't live like this any longer!!!

So I did it. Well, I did my bangs. I was going to trim the back too but then realized at the last second, with scissors in hand, that this was a bad idea & I called my roommate in to help me. The back looks great, the bangs... have been better.

It could have been a lot worse, I guess. If I style  them exactly the right way I don't think anyone will be thinking "Wow, look at the hack job on those bangs". On the other hand, I have to be on stage this weekend. Yes, I'm in a play... how embarrassing. It's a fundraiser for the church's mission trip, a Murder Mystery Dinner Theater & it's actually pretty hilarious, but I feel like I'm 15 again & worried I'll look like a loser in front of hundreds of people. haha

Maybe next time I'll remember this & resist the hair meltdown until it passes. Maybe.


  1. Oh no! I've been there, as you know. Hair meltdowns are the worst. I don't know what suddenly gets into us that we feel its beyond reason if we live another day without cutting our hair. We must have a total lack of sanity at those moments and feel that the only cure is scissors in our hands that are aimed at our bangs!

  2. You are brave! I have curly hair...and can't do bangs at all. I am SO guilty of waiting about 6 months too long for haircuts. When I do, the weight drags down the gets frizzy on the bottom and flat on top. ICK! My hairdresser always chews me out...yet I still let it get out of control.

  3. I don't think it looks bad, but that post made me crack up! I do my own bang trims too and try to generally follow the advice of, if you cut with the scissors vertically, you can't mess it up. Here's hoping.
