Short Hair: New Hair, New Makeup
For the past month I've been struggling to clean my hair, it gets tangled, I keep getting hair falling out and it was just becoming increasingly difficult to manage - the weather was also heating up.. it it was the perfec time to get my locks chopped.
I checked out a few hair-dressers who charged $55 for a tiny trim... oh hell no! That could've been put towards the Jo Malone fragrance on my wishlist.
As always, I think I can do anything and everything, 2 sundays ago, I decided to save $55 and give myself a trim.
I am notorious for cutting my own hair. Don't ask me how I do it, I usually just grab a pair of scissors and hope for the best.
The first pair of scissors I used had a broken handle (probably not ideal for hair cutting) but I decided to use it anyway... and the result was atrocious.... luckily I snapped happy pics to my boyfriend detailing the process (see pic below, sorry, I take the ugliest selfies to my bf... those pictures are so terrifying I'll make them smaller)
|Oops... trimmed TOO much|
I had no idea what I was gonna do with my awful uneven fringe, it suited medium hair Lily but not short hair Lily.. After a quick consult with a friend, ixie fringe was recommended...and pixie fringe I cut!
Above was the damage. It took me a VERY long time to get used to it, it's the shortest my hair has even been since I was 4. I even had nighmares about the hair.
2 weeks on.. I learned to love it. It's practical for Summer - easy to clean, does not require a lot of management AND I barely need to brush it.
My previous makeup routine didn't suit my new hair, so I decided to put togther a new everyday routine, it did not deviate significantly from my previous makeup, but it did make a difference.
The makeup that made the above pic possible..
