And so it’s my birthday. I’m going to treat myself to a nice cut and color at my favorite salon today. You’ll be happy to know that I did achieve my goal of making a French Twist and now I can get this hot mess cut off just in time for the summer swelter. I’ve been searching for examples of flattering haircuts that can take to the salon for reference – my hairdresser encourages that – but most of what you find when you search for “flattering hairstyles for mature women” are Hollywood actresses with goony spiked or Medusa hairdos. Then I realized that these are women who don’t have the rounded/squared-off Slavic face shapes so no matter what their hairdo is, it won’t look the same on me. And that’s when it hit me – go with what the famous rounded/squared-off Slavic faced women go with:
Just a few wispy bangs to fill in that bare spot (which I have helpfully added) and this is exactly what I had in mind in the first place. See ya on the flip side. Or, to put it more accurately, see ya on the feathered bob side.
UPDATE: Apparently, I am ruled by Uranus this year. Is that good or bad?
