I finally, FINALLY, got my hair cut. Going to the hair-dresser is not something that I frequently do. In fact, for the last 2 years I've been cutting my own hair, at home. Why? Because I think that going to the hair salon is just extremely expensive. Don't you agree? I'm there for one hour, and they just wash, make me a very simple hair cut -- I don't get something very elaborate or any thing. It takes her 15 to actually cut my hair -- and then she just blow-drys it and makes it all straight. One hour of this service costs me 30 euros. I don't make 30 €/hr and I have a double masters degree! And this lady, has what? a professional degree on hairdressing or whatever, and a salon in a dark ally near Lisbon' city center gets 30 euros for working one freaking hour?! So yeah, I think It's expensive.
But I was really needing some pampering. I did my hair and my eyebrows and now I feel so much lighter! I have been punting this away for SOOOO long. Anyway. It's done. And I chopped a lot of hair off. My hair was hitting me right under my armpits and I now is up to my shoulders. I asked for a long bob and of course the lady had no idea what I was talking about, so I showed her a couple of pictures -- like the one I'm posting here. And I think it looks pretty good. I look profissional and more put together than before and that's what matters the most to me. I don't mind doing crazy stuff to my hair, but I have to be conscious that I work at an office with a very formal dress-code. Less hair also means less effort every morning, so win-win :)
