Economy Hair-do







We are all feeling the effects of the downturn of the economy and life's little luxuries are becoming a thing of the past. One little luxury in particular that I enjoyed was getting "my hair did." However, with prices rising on everything I can't afford to have my hair done anymore. First of all, my hair is super thick and they have to mix up twice as much color to get the job done. Second, they want to charge me another 25.00 bucks just to trim my hair. Maybe they charge double for cutting thick hair too. Anyway, it costs about 100.00 just to get my hair done at a cheap salon and I never know what color my hair is going to be when I get done. So my hair was looking a little shabby to me a couple weeks ago and I decided I would take my hair into my own hands. The first thing I did was cut myself some bangs, which was scary and I don't really like them anyway. I never like my bangs when I have them cut. I guess I thought cutting them would get rid of the itch to get my hair done, well it didn't. I made a little trip to Target and picked me out some nice hair color in a box. The great news is that it only cost me about $12 for two boxes of color--way cheaper than a salon. Anyway, it was pretty easy to apply and really not messy at all. I think it turned out pretty dang good and I think I like the "economy" hair-do afterall:)

I love it! Good Job! I stopped dying my hair when we got married because of the cost and damaged hair. Now I want to start again but I don't think it's very good timing since we are adding a very big expense to our lives in a few months.

I love it Chelle! I've had to do the economy thing too. It isn't that bad, but if you ever need a trim or something, I would do it for you! I can cut anyone's hair but my own, I'm scared of doing the back. But I still do Deysha's on a regular basis. Anyways, you did great! Your hair always looks great!

Looks good! I'm feeling ya on the hair salon/economy thing. After 5 months of regrowth, I finally got mine dyed (only because my sis-in-law does hair and did it for free for me)!

welcome to the do your own hair club! lol I am not brave enough to cut my own hair though, i have tried and screwed up pretty bad before, but I have also had bad haircuts from professionals too so i guess it's all the same right.
