I haven't had a haircut since, like, May of 2006. Not even a trim, which I know is bad. I haven't had hair this long in quite some time. When I was little, I had long hair and wanted nothing more than to chop it off, and I finally convinced my mom to let me some time around the 5th grade, I think it was. But I remember in my 7th grade school picture, I was sporting the long hair again. It was fine (texture-wise), but thick, perfectly straight, smooth, and healthy.
Then, in 8th grade, I made a hair styling choice that changed everything. I got a perm. (Insert Psycho screeches here.) It was not attractive, to say the least, and when it finally grew out, my hair was never really the same. It gets frizzy very easily, and if I don't blow dry it, it has some lame looking waviness. Not pretty waves, but like three weird, oddly placed and shaped waves. And ever since then, growing out my hair has not really been an option, because it wasn't thick enough for it to look halfway decent. It would get scraggly looking.
Recently I found these multivitamins that say they're good for nails, hair, and skin, because they have tons of biotin. I really think my hair did grow faster, and was at least a little thicker. It's gotten to the point where if I'm sitting in a chair, I lean against my hair, so I'm always pulling it forward over my shoulder. And with summer's heat, I always had it in a clip to keep it off my neck.
Well, I think I'm ready for a haircut. My hair isn't long enough for Locks of Love, and it would probably just get sold (I read about how if the hair isn't exactly what they need, they sell it to Chinese wig makers for like $4 per ponytail). And I don't want to just get a couple inches trimmed off the bottom. I want to do something a little different. So I found this website, Makeover Solutions, that lets you upload a photo and try out different hairstyles for free. (In the Virtual Makeover section, click "try it free." Requires registration.) I tried lots of styles, and found these three to be my favorite options. Granted, they're not drastic (the pixie styles don't exactly suit my face shape) but they're a little more stylish than what I have now. Which one do you like best? I'm digging A, but I don't know how I'd achieve the curl thing easily. (I'm not a hot rollers kind of gal.)
