Tom-Boy Chic


I got a haircut. It was actually meant to be more of a trim when we started out, but it ended up being a full-blown cut. I think it turned out pretty well! I call it tom-boy chic. Courtesy of my mom.

My initial reaction wouldn't have told you that I liked it, though. She got done cutting it and I went to look at in the mirror, then promptly ran off crying.


That's because my hair is naturally curly. But my top layers tend to curl up more than the bottom layers. So by the time she got done cutting it my hair was dry, and the bottom layers are quite a bit longer than the top layers. When I looked in the mirror I thought I looked like Carol Brady on the Brady Bunch. With a female mullet. Yuck.

I usually wouldn't react so strongly, but I just had a really awful day at work. I felt like crying most of the day, so when I saw the wavy, frizzy mess that is my hair before I style it, I guess I kind of panicked. My poor mom - I've never disliked one of her haircuts before, and I have definitely never run off crying like that.


And my mom's perfect record has not been broken after all! I actually really loved it once I washed and straightened it - it looks great. After I came out of the bathroom and showed her she decided it was one of her best works ever. And I do believe I agree.

Cute haircut-i really i really like it! Good thing it was your mom and not someone else :) My oldest sister has curly hair and she's like this every time she gets a haircut-until she goes home, washes her hair and styles it. I do think your mom did a great job! I would trust her with my haircut :)
