Change. It’s hard for some of us. It takes courage to go a different route. To choose differently. To trust that something new and different will be okay. I’m not talking about huge life decisions. Buying a house, or moving to another state. I’m not talking about quitting a job, or trying a new genre. I’m talking our hair.
I have an appointment today with my hair dresser. And I’m already feeling antsy. Every time I go, I think this time I’ll tell her to do something completely different. To go a little crazy.
And then I don’t.
I have friends whose hair is different every time I see them. Sometimes I really like it, sometimes I don’t. But I always admire their courage.
Now, I have excuses. I have fine hair and, therefore, the number of styles that actually look good on me are limited. I could go short and spiky? I just don’t see myself as a short-spiky-haired girl.
I could have it dyed a different color? Yeah . . . No!
So I’ll go and I’ll probably ask her the same question I ask every time. “Any recommendations?”
I know she’ll offer something, and I’ll listen and then I’ll say . . . “Just do the regular.”
What’s wrong with me guys?
I mean, I don’t shy away from change in other areas of my life. I jump genres, I recently moved from the house I’d lived in for twenty years. I’m not afraid to travel. I’ll try different kinds of food. Heck, I ate toad soup once.
But my hair? I never venture too far from what I’ve always had.
Any hair style advice for fine hair? Any advice on taking a leap of faith at the salon? Are you like me, afraid of a new hair style?
So, I have a little contest for you. Would you like to win an Ancestry DNA kit? You know, the ones that check your DNA and tell you if your Irish, Italian, or whatever. Pre-order In Another Life and send a link or a screenshot of your order to me a firstname.lastname@example.org and you’ll be entered to win an Ancestry kit. I’ll be closing this contest on March 25th. (Sorry, but this contest is limited to U.S. residents only.)
