I took a risk tonight: I had Stephen cut my hair.
Why would I have my tech-smart, common-sense based husband cut my hair?
Well, I have heard horror stories of people getting lice or bangs on a regular basis in this area; I am fearful of both. It also seems risky to have someone who cuts straight, black hair 99.9% of the time attempt to cut curly, brown hair.
I decided it would be safer to have someone cut my hair who speaks my language, is familiar with curls, and is very aware that I did not want bangs.
But I did get a little nervous when he held the scissors in his hand and asked, “So, you said you want it sporadic, right?”
No, I had said I wanted layers, not sporadic anything. When I said I wanted layers, but evenly distributed, it took some time to explain how these can coexist.
But I think it just might have worked!
We were at least successful with the no bangs and no lice. We’ll go from there tomorrow.
