Dd almost always has her hair in a ponytail. It's quick. It's easy. Who can blame her?
She recently decided that she wanted go from long and straight to a bit of layering. After some abuse from a recent theater production (that required ringlets of her super straight hair, achieved with lots of heat and hairspray), she needed a good trim. The problem is, Mom's salon doesn't do layers. So, I took her someplace to get a real haircut today.
The pic on the left is still-damp hair, just to show length. The middle is her hair brushed out for a picture this past fall. Normally is is just swept back in a ponytail like the pic on the right.
The stylist ended up taking only 4 inches off. Though both of us thought the end result would be quite a bit shorter, this really is good length for a transition. I think she looks awfully pretty with her new layers.
However, it didn't take her but a couple hours to have it back in a ponytail, though there is a little face-framing layer sneaking out!
