So I did a thing...buzz, buzz, buzz went the buzzer. And most of my hair fell to the ground. Actually about 3/4 of my hair. I decided after more than three years of full pin curl sets that I was ready for a change. And boy was it drastic! I went to my husband's barber with a ponytail of the hair I wanted to keep and told him to buzz the rest. I LOVE IT. I can still style it with curls, victory rolls, braids, etc. but now it only takes minutes from start to finish. I can still easily wear my vintage flowers for my business ChatterBlossom and it bizarrely goes super well with my closet full of vintage clothing! Win-win!
