results: my hair

I had my hair trimmed tonight by Carmen at Karma Hair and Bodywork Salon on Sabattus Street in Lewiston.

Here are my before and after photos. Note the scraggles at the bottom of my hair in the before shot. Those were driving me bananas. In the after shot, my hair looks healthier with a cleaner cut with just a few snips.

The best part is my bangs, which Carmen cleaned up for me. I've been trimming them myself but I am afraid to make them too short so I kept them too long and they were always in my eyes.

Now I can see!
(Please note: that's not some weird chunk of hair on the other side of my face; that's the shadow my giganto nose is casting on the wall behind me.)

Liam loves running his hands through my hair, especially when it's wet. I think subconsciously that's another part of why I don't want to get rid of it all yet. Plus, I can still totally tickle him with the ends of my hair without even turning my face away from him.

My hair looks like it's about the same length now as it was in March of 2006 when I donated it last. I think I'll keep growing it at least through the fall before I cut it again- and now, thanks to Carmen, I'll have healthier hair to send off to someone who needs it more than I do.

Amazing. I have to admit, I actually enjoyed your hairy posts. he he. I wear my hair up way too much for it to grow long. It gets to a certain length then stops growing. I like it a lot shorter, but don't like having to go get it cut every 3-4 months. I got once a year instead, which results in about 1-2 months of me loving my hair, then about 8 of me pulling it up 905 of the time. he he.

um, that should say 90% not 905.

I think you have a cute nose. Seriously. Love, Heather

I agree with Heather about the nose.

Your hair looks great. That's so cool that you are donating it.

I like your long hair, it suits to you very well.
I may you keep it growing, and only trim very little to prevert split ends
