I chopped more hair off. Had it done yesterday, very deliberately. I've had 5.5 inches chopped off my fringe this year. (4 months of lockdown hair growth!)
Last week was wet, windy, and cool in Seattle. I'm on foot and outside in the city many times a day because I walk everywhere. Mask, rain, specs, hood, fogged up eyewear, Sam in tow, carrying groceries, doing errands..... and long fringe with longer hair around my ears driving me bananas.
I need hair that looks good after hoods, rain, wind, and beanies. And is mask- friendly too.
PROBLEM SOLVED! I'm back to a short classic pixie that I can wear multiple ways, and looks polished after it's fought with the weather, masks, hats and hoods.
#1 - after the salon with a fringe so blow dried
#2 to #5 - air dried at home with product so wavy fringe
#6 to #8 - air dried at home so wavy but pushed back.
#9 - no specs, which is how I type, work, read, Zoom, and cook at home
My hair is almost zero effort day to day, and a shorter visit to the salon to boot. Much better for these times!
Post COVID and mask-wearing, I'll grow out my fringe and sides again....
I'm happy with the practical and fuss-free change. I once again feel polished :)
