Taming the 'do.

I bit the bullet.  I've finally taken my foot waaaaay out of Utah and planted it firmly in Boston.  I've committed to getting a hair cut in Boston.  And I like what the stylist did!  Fortunately.

She chopped off about 3 inches of dead and gross split ends.  She trimmed and reshaped my whack-job bangs.  She blew my hair out perfectly and then flat-ironed it.  And of course it's a rainy and humid and awful day for straight hair.  But that's okay.  We're en route to the land of dry heat.  To the land of no humidity.  To the land of perfect hair.  I am not even kidding.  My hair behaves so well when we're in Utah.  It's a wonderful thing. 

Does choosing a new hairstylist give you anxiety?  Yep.  Totally.

  2. Because I've donated my hair twice I don't have too much anxiety about major hair change. In fact, I find it fun and liberating. But I do understand what you're talking about trusting a new stylist in a new place. I've been getting my hair cut in CA forever and I've been in UT for almost two years and I just recently went to a salon here. I was afraid of getting a stylist with "UT hair." Hope that doesn't offend, you definitely don't have it, but you know what I'm talking about...the massive teasing and hairspray.

  3. I totally know'Utah hair' and I'm totally not offended. I can always tell when I'm on a flight to Utah based on the hair cuts alone!! Love it.

  4. I agree with the comment, Utah has NO HUMIDITY! It's great to have straight hair and not have to worry about the frizzies. Utah's dry air also dries out your skin. Lots of lotion, lip balm and sun screen is needed.

    I felt so bad for you this summer when the humidity in Boston was about the same as the temperatures (100's).
