When it comes to experimenting with my hair, I've tried it all. Well... not quite... but I basically have done every thing permissible to my hair (and according to the environment I was in) and was never very sentimental about just one style.
I've pulled off my long do for the longest time though, once around 2005 for about a year, and another straight after giving birth to Jada, for around 2 years. My hair is thick and grows really really fast and so, I never really gave it much thought if I were to make a mistake with a haircut - simply because I knew the hair would grow rapidly and I could repair something within a month. So, I would colour, I would highlight it, straighten it, curl it - just about anything I felt I wanted to do at that point of time.
In fact, I changed my hairstyles too often that back when we were dating, some of Mr Husband's friends thought he went out with different women at those few occasions ;P
I believe it is pretty much important to always give your current look a fresher appeal every once in awhile. Back in 1999 I had a very good stylist by the name, Michael, who was based in Jantzen, Mid Valley. He would change my hairstyle and hair colour every 3 months or so. He was that good. He left the establishment and I never knew where he went. Of course, after so many change of hairstyles, I decided that I was spending too much on my hair and I made slower changes not for the high I'd get but only when I felt it's time for a new look. I think it feels nice to be able to not worry much about how I'd look and just go give it one try, at least once in my lifetime (of course, not anything too radical like shaving off my head or stuff like that).
So, after 2 years carrying this thick long hair... I suddenly had the inspiration from the picture below which I got from here. I took this picture to my current stylist today and since she has done up a short do on me before, she wasn't the least bit surprised that I came back to her for something very different after so long...
ya, i know she's got an oval face and i don't... but who cares? your stylist should be able to adapt the style to your face shape to get the best results :D
Of course, with such a radical change, there is only one stylist whom I trust and I love that I have that someone for my hair needs.
How often do you change your hairstyle?
