Free Haircut

Lately I've been wanting to hack all my hair off really badly. My hair grows really fast and its been awhile since I've had it cut since the Mad Cow was my hair dresser. Dang! I was very impatient the other day so I decided to give myself the same cut I used to rock in high school. Yes, I cut my own hair.

I'm loving it! I use the old school technique my mother used when she was a hippy teen. I flip my head upside down and cut it that way. Luckily, I've had a lot of practice because I used to do it when I was younger. I know how make sure its not crooked or too short in spots. I'm pretty proud of myself for remembering my technique and thankfully it worked out awesome.

I have issues with my hair. When I was very stressed a few years ago I became very ill and my hair started to fall out. It slowly came out for years. I went to specialists and everything. My hair is very thin and some spots on my scalp are a little more bare than I would like. The best thing for me to do is not think about and do my best to make it look good.

Most people never notice unless I show them but I'm still very sensitive about it. This cut seemed to perk my hair up and give it volume. This is a great thing for me as BF loves my hair longer but I hate it because it shows how thin it is. Now we are both happy.

Time - 5 minutes
