New Haircut! - Salon 1219 (Phoenix, AZ)

Wednesday, May 8, 2013
I know...it's crazy that I actually grew hair to my butt.  I never really wanted my hair THAT long, but with all the stuff going on, I just didn't have a chance to cut my hair.

You can kinda see how I had ombre in my locks.  It had originally started around my ears, and just grew out a little longer.  I've always hated how your tips get so thin your hair is extra long.  I think it looks kinda gross...especially of the girls who have hair down to their knees, but it's like 10 strands that are that long, lol.

The main reason I wanted to cut it, is because I am now doing my own housekeeping.  People who have had to work my hair getting everywhere have often complained to me, but I've just ignored it.  But now that I have to clean it up myself, I have seen the error of my ways.  My hair was getting caught up in EVERYTHING, especially the vacuum.  I would only be able to vacuum for about 3 minutes before I would have to clean out the brushes from my hair.  And I'm only talking about a week's worth of hair!!  Jeez.  So I decided it was time to chop it off and make it easier on everyone (especially me).  When I look at this pic, I kinda miss my longer hair, hahaha.  I need to stop.

Sooooo, I asked my friend where she gets her hair cut, since I have no clue what is good out here in Phoenix.  She pointed me to Crista @ Salon 1219.  Since I had been referred, she gave me 50% off my first appointment with her. WIN! Lol  I decided to cut off about 8 inches.  I know that's not exactly dramatic or anything, but I wanted to keep my ombre!  I also wanted to go lighter, in case I could do a cool color.  Unfortunately, my work only allows for "natural" color hair.  I may do a red later on, but I kinda wanted Teal or Pink.  I wonder if I could get away w/ pink....It's a natural color, right? LOL

I haven't cleaned my condo up yet this week (it's a Sun/Mon kinda thing), but hopefully my hair won't keep messing with the vacuum.

Anyhoo, back to the actual haircut.  I think it turned out really nice!  And the ombre is also blended pretty smoothly.  Some people don't understand what ombre is...one girl, who works at one of those flat iron booths in the mall, asked me if I was growing out my color. WTF, she works in the hair industry!  She should be up to date on stuff like this!!!  Can you tell I'm bitter? LOL  I told her it was ombre and she asked what that was.  JEEZ, not buying anything from her, that's for sure!  (Sorry, moving back to my hair...) I also liked the way Crista curled my hair with a flat iron.  I tried to dupe this back home and it just didn't work right, lol.  Going to stick w/ a curling iron for now.  =)  The pics speak for themselves: long, old, thinning hair to medium, fresh, healthy hair. Hehehe

So yes, I am very happy with how my hair turned out.  I might even go back and get it dyed red in the near future. =)  If you are in the Phoenix area and want to give Crista a shot, just tell her that I referred you so you can get 50% off your first appointment.  Here's the Yelp link: http://www.yelp.com/biz/salon-1219-phoenix
