Thank you for your comments about haircuts. Charlies Aunt suggested going to the college to get it done. I used to go there a few years ago. It was very cheap, but you have to make an appointment, and it takes about three hours to get it done. As I am the impatient type, I make up my mind and want it cutting asap, I hate waiting for appointments. So, today was the day I had to get my haircut. Nowhere open on Easter Sunday so I'm going to have a bash at cutting it myself. The front bit is easy. Comb it all forward and trim around the face, now how to do the back.
I have two doors opposite each other, and conveniently they both have a nail in them at about head height. I also have two largish mirrors. Open one door slightly so it's not dead opposite the other, making a slight angle, and bingo, I can see the back of my head. No, I didn't cut my hair holding the camera, silly, ha ha. All I did was to keep combing my fingers through and lifting a clump of hair, gripping it near the ends, and chopping it off. I kept doing that all over, lifting and trimming. That's how I've seen them doing it at the hairdressers. It's dead easy once you get going.
Chop chop, lots of hair on the mat. A good all over trim.
Then I coloured it with a £4 colour from Savers the discount store. I know you are supposed to do a strand test, but I never do, and I've never had any problems in all the years I've been using them. So now I am a light beige blonde.
Rinse, condition, rinse again, and blow dry.
