As we age, our hair ages too. We just keep on truckin' with the same hairdo, but possibly the texture has changed by now. I know mine has. At one time I had stick straight hair. After menopause it's all curly in the back..horrid. But it's a big change and needs to be dealt with. That's another situation where a fresh eye might help. Sometimes we just need to let go.
I love this young hairdresser that I found on Social Media. Really. Experiment. Change it up...you have nothing to lose, except of course, your old fashioned haircut. You might have to suffer a few frogs, but in the end, you'll have a princess!
PS, It's always funny to me how women seem to be attached to their old hairdressers. I guess it's because they have become friends. Sometimes we need to cut the cord. And remember this, you are paying this 'friend'. Yup, I'm harsh.
