I’m going to admit something very embarrassing. Before today, I hadn’t cut my hair for almost an entire year. I cut it about a week before my wedding and our 1st anniversary is in 2 weeks. Worse yet, I had it cut all one length – not a good look for my sometimes curly hair. Since, I’d saved on an entire year’s worth of no haircuts, I decided to splurge on this last one. After some research I decided I’d go to the owner of the Girl Loves Boy Salon in Summit, NJ – Shahe Kasparian. And I’ve gotta say, it was a truly great experience. First, he took a look at my hair, and my face and explained to me why my hair shouldn’t be as long as it was. Apparently, for my face shape, my height and my hair type, my hair shouldn’t be longer than a face length past my face… does that make sense? Maybe this will help:
Also, he said I should never cut my hair one length again — that I need some dimension and an opportunity to create texture. I told him that I once got bangs and he cringed – he said definitely not for my face shape and because of the “wave” i have in my hairline — better known as my cowlick. All in all it was a very enlightening session. I place a high value on experts who can share with me some of the science behind what they do and Shahe did not disappoint! And I love my new haircut!
In other news, I worked from home today as I had no physical meetings (thank God for Cisco Jabber Video!) so I dressed down a bit.
