I don't know how to take a selfie. The before shot.

Maybe slightly better? The after shot.
The last time I dramatically cut my hair, I was a junior in high school and I was donating it. I donated a traumatic 13 inches which left my hair shorter than I expected and it took forever to grow back. The last time I had bangs was my sophomore year of college. As part of my plan to intern in New York City the next summer, I thought I'd do my part and get a "metropolitan" hairstyle to go with my new fabulous intern life (LOL). I had bangs for about a year and then decided that I wanted "mermaid hair" and a center part and to just leave it alone. So that's what I've done for the last few years. 

I've been itching for a change for a little while, but I had yet to see a style that I really wanted to commit to. My hair is thick and curly, and if I'm going to have to put a lot of effort into maintaining a style, it's gotta be one I'm happy to deal with every day. I saw this style in a magazine my mom brought back from a trip to the UK as the after component of a makeover story, and I just knew it was the one. I took it to The Drawing Room upon a recommendation from Stephanie, and now I have a spiffy new 'do. Thanks, Stylist!

I've never been attached to my hair. It grows back, and a lot of times I'm just annoyed with it, so cutting it has never been a big deal. However, a lot of people don't know how to negotiate curly hair in a way that makes it look normal styled and somewhat natural, so I get nervous going to a stylist that is different than my trusted-since-fifth-grade stylist at home. After I found nothing but praise for The Drawing Room, I decided I better just go for it since it was time for a change, so here it is! I couldn't be happier with the service at the salon, even though it was definitely an NYC price, something I've never indulged in before. It was worth it, though, when I didn't want to walk away unhappy and stuck with a bad haircut.

UPDATE: Now that I've worn this cut both straight and curly, I can confirm that he did an excellent job cutting my hair since it holds shape when it air dries. Many times with curly hair, it just looks like a house, so I'm happy I can just let it go (once I deal with the bang situation) when it's wet now, and I don't have any Liz Lemon issues.
