Let’s face it. There are MANY big problems in today’s world. Big, complicated, multi-faceted, no-easy-answer situations. I’m not going to attempt to list them all – let alone answer them – because you know them and are probably as confounded by them as I. So today I wanted to address just one little (superficial, I confess) aspect of one of just one of those BIG situations.
Oy – have you struggled with this THING? When I opted for the short hair look four years ago I knew there would be trips to the hair salon every six weeks or so. And given that we generally change location monthly, it would be trips to a NEW stylist almost every time. I came to appreciate (and even trust) the Hair Cuttery and Super Clips and even the occasional Walmart Super Styles. I’ve even had a FlowBee cut or two
which have turned out quite nicely thanks to Jenny’s expertise!
But it never occurred to me that a time would come when ALL the salons would be closed and my only option was to let it grow or let Gary cut it. The former seemed like the way to go, trust me.
Armed with a good supply of gel and “fiber wax”, I attempted to manage my COVID hair over the next several months. (Since one of the things I loved about my short hair was the actual lack of management it required, these were trying days indeed!)
Friends, the struggle was real.
Last week, much to my delight (and Gary’s also – he was getting pretty tired of my whining about The Hair), I was able to get rid of my COVID hair and return to my finger combing, new-every-morning (in a good way) short hair!
Still no answers to any of those Big Questions – except to keep trusting the God of the Universe who continues to work it out for His Glory. But at least I can stop fretting (ok, it was actually whining) about Another Bad Hair Day!
