It's actually more like new hair cut for the end of the summer. I had my hair cut again and this time, for me, it was epic. I totally stepped out of my comfort zone.
So before the haircut:
grr. what a face.
My hair used to have the typical long layered style and it's really thick. Maintenance is really pricey. I consume too much shampoo and conditioner. So i thought I need to make my hair thinner. I printed this picture of bubzbeauty for me to have something to show to the parlor. The parlor I went to was named Mirrors. They were supposed to be famous for Korean-type hairstyles in Iligan.
Upon seeing the picture, the hairstylist instantly said. "Ah! Octopus cut!"
And I was like... octopus whaaat??
Before I can do anything about it, he started cutting huge bundles of hair already.
More layers are starting to form. This is the point of no return.
The hairstylist was ironing my hair too to make it straight and said something like "mas nindot if i.rebond imong buhok". Your hairstyle will look better if we rebond your hair.
At this point, seeing how apathetic he is about all the hair that I've painstakingly grew for the last 4 years(I had short hair before), I was a little bitter already.
I was thinking. You gave me this haircut so I have no choice but to get my hair rebonded again?
Because the thing is OCTOPUS CUT WASN'T THE CUT THAT I WANTED!
After the hairstylist was done murdering my hair.
The ends are just too thin! If you watch bubz, you can see that her hair is still thick enough for her to do different styles with it. I can't do that with my hair! And to think that it was initially thick and all.
Plus, the hair at the back of my head are sooo short, I can't even tie my hair in a pony tail.
And of course, it didn't stay straight. I had my hair rebonded over a year ago, most of the hair at the top of my head are in their natural state.
I looked like I had boycut and wearing slim extensions.
Seriously, a bob would have been easier to sport.
The night after I had a haircut, I can't sleep at all!
It's the same feeling I had when I failed a subject. You know that feeling when you just want everything to be a bad dream that you can wake up from? And you just want soooo badly to go back in time to undo everything. Well at one point, I really thought I was just dreaming, but when I grabbed my head and felt my hair, I almost cried when it felt short and thin.
FYI. I did cry later at 2am I think. What?? I'm a girl after all. Furthermore, my hair is one thing that I'm most vain about (you can tell by the amount of products reviews, most are still in draft even. I will publish them soon).
Oh by the way, we had pizza at R. Kelly Pizza after.
Aine only partially aware that I'm taking her picture.
I know this is totally not related but the pizza was good. This cost 168 pesos I think. Really cheap. You should check out this R. Kelly Pizza when you visit Iligan.
yummy don't you think?
So anyway, days passed. The only consolation I got is since I just had more than half of my hair chopped off, my shampoo and conditioner consumption was greatly lessened.
But hey, these days, I think my hair is doing better (or I probably just got used to it). Here are a few more shots of how I get by with it.
No longer straight. But the waviness adds volume.
Bangs to hide breakouts at my forehead. yey!
This is how I wear it. All the long hair has to be in front.
From the back, it looks like I have short hair.
See what I mean? Sorry for the weird posture. I'm slouching here.
And here are some more pictures these last few days.
At the laundry house. They had lots of mirrors and I was bored waiting for my laundry so I took a picture.
In front of my laptop.
With my friend Flor.
So now you can tell by my hairstyle which of my pictures or posts are outdated. :)
