2020 retrospectives? No thanks

    1. I will never again take a good professional haircut for granted! I normally wear my hair quite short and layered. You can (or maybe can’t) imagine what it looks like after a year of growth and my desperate occasional snipping.

    1. I’ve really missed the hugs, the Star Trek Sundays with the son and grandkids bringing pizza, the grandson coming over just to chat and play video games, etc. A year in the life of a teen is forever! And I’ve missed it.

  1. LMAO! Haircut! I’ve been going for haircut/color since it opened back up – until December. I’ve been going to an Aveda salon for years, and they are expensive. Even though I switched from using a Master designer to their “bottom of the totem pole” designer (I’m talking half the price), it still costs me around $250 for cut and color (I was paying nearly $400 before with a Master designer). I lighten my hair to PLATINUM blond, and it is hard on hair. Aveda really is an awesome product. I canceled my December appt tho. Money is just too tight right now. Plus, I don’t go anywhere. The grocery. Costco. Convenience store. And all visits are in/out, mask-required. I keep a safe distance. Use sanitizer at any/all opportunities before, during and after each store visit.

    My hair was driving me nuts. I don’t know when I’ve last posted a photo but I wear it very short. Light finger-width length. I’ve shaved my head before. Once for shits and giggles just to see what it was like. And 2nd time, it was before I started going to Aveda. I tried doing my own hair color from products bought from one of those salon-stock stores. I misunderstood some instructions about the purple-stuff that was supposed to keep the brassiness from my hair (I used it all…..). I ended up with dark-purple hair. It was funny. That was before I started working from home. I’d already done the “for-shits-and-giggles” shave so decided to shave off the purple. I knew what shaving my head was like. In all honesty, I loved it. To wake up and not have to fix your hair is… totally… AWESOME!!! But I have a scar on the back of my head which is barely covered when I have hair. When I shave my head, it stands out. If I didn’t have that scar, I’d honestly shave my head more.

    So last week I cut the front of my hair where I can see it. I share the house with a professional dog-groomer so she used her shears to to the back of my head – and did a pretty damn good job. I lightened it (which I did myself for years, but had been a long time). I got the wrong color. It’s not bad. Just not blond enough. Kinda light red in places. So I sent and got the platinum blond product I should have got before. Waiting a week and that’s what I’m told to do. So, next week, will hopefully be platinum again. If not and it looks like crap, I’ll shave it.

    Who cares? I only go to the grocery and Costco.

    1. I got buzzed during chemo and really enjoyed it being that short. For a while. Growing it out was an awful mess, however. Don’t want to try that again. But I’d love to have my really short layers again. I’m just too chicken to try to cut it that short myself. I gave up on color years ago. Too messy, time consuming, expensive. And it all gets cut off too soon. Besides, I’m not working anymore so who cares. My salon has mostly been open, but asks high-risk-group members to stay home. So here I sit.

... and that's my two cents
