I hate change

I titled this 'I hate change' which isn't really true at all. I love moving to a new place and meeting new people. I love trying new food or a new activity. In almost all things, I actually embrace change. The exception, I hate it when I know and like a piece of technology and they change it. My most recent complaint is The Hair Styler website. I discovered this jem a few years ago when I decided to make a big change and chop my long curly hair that I'd had for years. This site allows you to upload your picture and you can 'try on' thousands of styles to see what you're looking for. I used it then and loved it and was very happy with my cut in the end.

As I mentioned before I am heading south in a few weeks and I'm desperate for a hair cut. I haven't had it cut since last November so I'm way overdue. Originally, I had decided I was going to let it grow out and do the mom ponytail thing but I just can't live with it. I'm not exactly sure what I want to do and I remembered The Hair Styler. It seems they updated the site in August AND IT SUCKS! There isn't near as many options to try on and its very hard to make them look right. The old site's hair was much less realistic, almost drawings than pictures but they actually looked better when you tried them. The new one's pictures are real pictures from celebs and they just don't work. Maybe I'll have to try a different picture of myself. Maybe a little make-up and a nicer shirt would help too :)

Anyway, I haven't found anything that I would remotely take to a salon but I have tried a few funky things in case I decide to go a little crazy. I really wish they would have just left well enough alone.

I had the first one for a few years. It was great: really easy to style. The only issue that you might run into was that I had to get it trimmed pretty often. I remember barely getting my hair cut at all when I lived in Inuvik, so you might have the same problem.

I wish I had enough nerve to go with a fun colour.

go with the last one...great cut for your face and you can style it in different ways. however, although i love colouring my hair in funky shades, don't do it in the north; you won't get a chance for any sort of upkeep (right now mine is a variety of shades - yuck).

the last one rocks, the others suck.

Hahahahahaha! These were all supposed to be jokes not real options. Good to know the first and the last could work. I'm going to keep looking.
