My Close Shave
Its been a week now since my clipping accident and I've been waiting for my hair to grow out to no avail. Yes go on- Laugh and gloat to ur hearts content all of you who have asking to see my gori gori. It was last week monday, I wanted to add some texturizer to my hair but decided to crop some off so it would look more beautiful and allow the texturizer work its magic better. So I got out hubby's clippers and went off to work.
Switched it on and the very first run through my hair went awry. I had failed to put any 'combs' on the blade and it cropped off more than I intended right in the middle of my scalp giving me a bald spot. Attached the 'comb' to the blade and tried again. The second swoosh gave me the same result. Oh No, I told myself, "You've got to be careful now". Hubby heard the buzz of his clipper and turned round to me - "What are you doing?" He asked? You know I dont like you with short hair and you're still cropping more off". Do you think I would have said a word to you at the airport the day I met you if you had short hair? Babe, its a new look and only for some time. I replied. Oh dear, Isaid to myself – now I cant ask him to help me out. Decided to finish what I had started and so I tried to be a little bit more careful. Finished cropping to my hearts content and then noticed that the hair behind my ears were a little bit too much and decided to crop there too and that’s where the mother of all accidents happened. I was using back to front movements but I guess my hand slipped when I got to the front cos the back was ok but the clipper went too low and voila the result is what you see on the screen.
So that is the story of my hair. I have been waiting for it to grow out so I can head to the salon this time (hand on my heart) and get it done properly. I have been thinking of changing the colour too. Maybe get it dyed blonde or auburn.
