Cuts, Color, and Piercings
I have very fine (like a baby), straight hair. I was not blessed with a lot of hair, either. I always wanted to have been one to have been given a thick mop of curls, but it was not what happened when I was being formed. Thus, I have had short hair since I was about 12-years-old.
I have tried on a couple of occasions to grow my hair. When it got long, however, it was thin and lifeless. The popular thing in the 1970s was to get a permanent curl, to "give (me) body." I tried on two separate occasions. It looked okay for about a week. Then my hair began to break off and, that which was left, looked like trampled, dry straw.
I keep it short nowadays, and have for decades. There is not a lot of variety that I am afforded because of the fine, straight, and thinner mop I have, even in style cuts.
I have my hair cut quite often--every 4 to 6 weeks. It is a way that it keeps it looking neat and tidy. Every third cut, I also have some color "sliced" in to my natural color. Color-lifting or -adding gives it a bit more body than if it were not processed.
Today is a haircut only day and will hold me to near the end of January. I will not be due for a color until my appointment in March.
Perhaps, I should be bold and get it cut and colored like the person in the picture? Would I would have to consider the multiple piercings in the ear and in the face, too?
