If you’re brave, put a blade to your hair.
So, I had the brilliant idea to cut my hair today. By myself. For the first time in my life. I’ve always gone to the salon, or had my mom do some trimming here and there, but I’ve never done it before. What changed that to make me so adventurous today? Nothing. Just my genius. ;) I’ve been needing a hair cut, but the more I thought about it, the less I wanted to take the trip to the salon. So, I decided to take things into my own hands. After all, I’m a Junior in high school, I should be able to at least trim my hair some, right? I also thought it’d be cool if I could eventually cut my own hair – so why not start now? hmm, yeah.
After watching a YouTube (gotta love it!) tutorial on cutting hair only a bazillion times, and watching it with my mom to see what she thought, I closed myself in the bathroom with my laptop, hair scissors, brush, hair ties, and a comb. Everything was going well until I was just about to apply the scissors to my blonde hair when the lights zapped off. :shock:
See, we’re in the middle of remodeling our garage into a bedroom, pantry & mudroom. So with that comes along rewiring lights, etc, and sometimes my dad turned off all electricity so they wouldn’t be electrocuted. Sounds smart to me! But also comes along with awkward circumstances like cutting hair in the dark. I’m sure that was *super* smart of me. I also found out later that those bathroom lights were the only electricity that went out. Coincidence? I think not. ;) weird, huh?
Anyway, after about half an hour (I think….I wasn’t watching the time. It could’ve been longer.), I was finished. My hands had been shaking through the whole thing. I think it takes quite a brave soul to cut your own hair – just saying. That is, unless you’re a professional stylist, of course.
Before hacking at my hair, my side swept bangs fell to my jaw line. They now hang just above my bottom lid of my eye. But when I style it with hairspray, they (thankfully) stay out of my eyes. I can’t stand my hair in my eyes (hence why I needed a hair cut, haha).
So for a first time of ever cutting my own hair, it’s not that bad. Could be better, but it could’ve been a LOT worse. I’m pretty picky with my hair, so if I’m okay with it, that’s saying a lot. *applause* I know you guys are so proud of me. ;) :P
“And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered,” – Matthew 10:30
This verse was when Jesus was talking about how special we are to Him. He even knows the exact number of the hairs on our head – that’s amazing. I mean, really, who would ever have the patience to count the hairs of our head – or even care about it? No one, that’s who. But Jesus cares so much for us that He knows, because we mean so much to Him. Whenever I think about this, it just amazes me. Why would someone ever want to care that much about me?! I dunno, but Jesus does. And it makes me so glad to have a personal relationship with Him.
Do you cut your own hair? Or if you don’t, would you ever be brave enough to? What do you think about it? :D
