Back when we dated my husband would get his haircut from a barber, resulting in him looking like he just got out of prison. I couldn’t really make fun of it coz we were dating back then – had to maintain my miss nice image you see :lol:
After getting married, he slightly upgraded himself to a proper hair salon, albeit on most occasion -visiting different obscure ones. This time the cut wasn’t too short but it wasn’t that great either.
Recently, I persuaded him to give my stylist a shot. Although I realize paying RM68 for a man’s cut is definitely on the steep side, I was quite confident that Bill Tay of La Mode in Midvalley would give him a cut he’ll LOVE. And I was right!!! He managed to cover certain spots that my husband had concerns over. A lot of people don’t realize that he can VERY VERY vain sometimes and how I actually have to put up with it
I am vain but I love listening to my wife
My husband is officially a high end salon convert but it will probably be on a once every 3 months basis
I haven’t had my locks cut for more than 2 months and it had already grown rapidly due to my pregnancy hormones :) One of my biggest concern these days is my lack of enthusiasm to get ready. I always dread washing, blowing and ironing my hair. It would take me at least 25 minutes just to achieve a decent look. Hair alone. And I wash my hair twice a day due to my OCD nature of loving fresh and clean hair.
I was itching for a shorter do, which in my usual terms means 2 inches shorter. I’ve become SO confident in Bill that this time around, I didn’t eye him like a hawk. I let him have a go at it. It was only after the blow dry that I realized that it was MUCH shorter than what I expected.
I’ve had long hair for the past 7 years and the shortest I’ve ever gone in that 7 years was slightly above my bra line so this definitely was a shocker. Even the husband and sister said they’ve never seen me with such a do.
Before the hair cut: Long hair, below my bra line. And for the heck of it too – a before photo
After the hair cut: Shorter by at least 4 inches – all around shoulder length short with some layers in front!!
Look s a bit like Jen’s hair do in one of the Friends’ season right?
After the first wash the next day
I swear this is quite the preggers hair look and there are times this cut makes me feel like a brown version of Snow White – a look I long abandoned after leaving school.
I”m still 50-50 on this one. I can’t say I love it alot but what I can confidently say is how my hair can get ready faster. Let’s not forget how much shampoo/conditioner and electricity saved at the same time My hair feels a whole lighter now and I reckon it’s just a matter of time before I start loving it. I do however wish to get it long in time for my shoot with Asther in end July/ early August
