Yeah, so, I’ve had the same haircut and color for about 7 years. I figured right now would be a great time to try something different … especially since I’m starting chemo in March and all my hair might fall out anyway. What do I have to lose, right? I mean, besides my hair.
So, I got bangs.
I got bangs, and I changed up the color a little bit. It’s still red, but it’s more brown red than red red.
Of course, I did go into this haircut with a pretty good idea of how it would look. I bought a wig a few weeks ago in preparation for chemo. It’s a cute, little wig. At the urging of good buddy Jess, I got a wig with bangs, because it would hide the fact that’s it a wig better, not to mention it would hide my lack of eyebrows.
I tried on the wig, and it was so cute that I thought, “I should get my haircut like this right now.” I immediately sent the photo out to my group of ladies for input, and the decision was unanimous: It was cute. My idea was this: When all my hair falls out, I can transition to the wig, and it won’t be such a shock. I brought my wig into my regular stylist and asked her to cut and color my hair to look like the wig. She did an amazing job. It looks a lot like the wig – so much so that some of my best friends saw the photo and assumed it was the wig.
I asked Calvin what he thought of my new hair, and he just pointed and said, “Hair.” He is not wrong. It is hair. I’ll take that as a compliment. David says he likes it, which is not surprising because he has always had a thing for Velma from “Scooby-Doo.”
