Lazy hair is no longer an option

Now that the weather has finally started to turn cooler, I don't feel the need to have all of my hair off of my sweating neck (even in my office). But wearing it down was a bit much, so I chopped a lot off yesterday.

Not as much as Scarlet did on Nashville tonight though. (OH MY WORD!) It is shorter than I've had it in 2-3 years.

The thing is... in some ways longer is easier. Shorter you have to fix it, even if it doesn't take quite as long with the straightening iron. Lazy hair - which I had been doing far too often as of late - is no longer an option.

Oh, and this morning I woke up feeling like the back of my head was bruised. The girl doing the shampooing at the salon evidently thought she was a head masseuse. She needs to think again. She was way too rough. She rubbed the base of my head/top of my neck way too hard. I almost told her to stop when she told me to relax my head. I couldn't relax because I was in pain.
