Bay Area Hair Cut

This weekend, Sarah Land at Land of Locks helped me donate my hair to Locks of Love. I found out about Locks of Love when a couple of friends mentioned that they were donating their hair to an organization that provides hair prosthetics to children who are suffering from long-term medical hair loss. Since then, have been surprised at how many other people I know have made the same decision at some point.

Locks of Love requires that the hair is at least 10 inches long – so the cut is usually a dramatic one, and since I’ve never done it before I was really looking for someone who knew what they were doing. Fortunately, Sarah was recommended to me by a mutual friend who has excellent taste, so I felt confident that I was going to get a great hair cut, and that the 3.5 hour drive into the Bay Area was worth it for her expertise. Besides, it is always fun to have a chance to visit friends, check out my old stomping grounds, and do ‘city things’.

I love the new cut, and the more I play with it, the more I like it! It didn’t turn out exactly the way I had imagined – it turned out better – because I figure since I was traveling to get my hair done by a professional I respect, I would try to get out of the way and let her do her thing, and other than a few ideas or guidelines. That seems to have worked out well.

I have some funny lingering ‘long hair’ habits, like taking the time to flip my hair out when I put on a jacket, sweater, or put a bag over my shoulder, or extra motions when I wash my hair, but I’m sure as I get used to the convenience of short hair, that will go away. Yippee! Bring on the warm weather!

Somehow it doesn't seem like as much hair after it's been cut.

    Ha! And I thought that the mural painting made such a nice background. No, the picture and the hair cut were both done in a very nice small hair salon. But the painting does have some nice produce in it, I suppose.
