A momentous occasion

I’m getting a haircut today. This is quite the momentous occasion as haircuts is the one personal grooming thing I put off the most.

For some reason, I end up going ages between haircuts even though I never mean to. Once a bit of time passes since my visit to the salon and my hair begins to get easily tangled and damaged at the ends, I start thinking about booking my next visit. It’s usually on a Sunday evening when I think “Oh I should call the hairdresser’s tomorrow and book an appointment.” Inevitably, the next Sunday comes and no appointment has been booked because I am a master procrastinator.

This goes on for a while and by then my hair is in a worse situation which only makes me procrastinate even more. I just hate getting that disapproving look from the stylist when she sees my split ends (even though the look is probably only in my head). And so I put it off. It’s only when the situation gets really desperate than an actual haircut appointment is booked. Which is today.

Do you guys do this too?

    I’ve resorted to cutting my own hair. It’s not so bad with a little practice, depending on your hair style. I was also coached a little bit by a friend who does cosmetology. Always cut under your fingers and point cut the ends! Also, I’m cheap! No one’s really noticed except that it’s a bit shorter for a while.

    The last time I went for a trim it was so expensive and the hairdresser left the split ends so I’m likely to wait a while this time. I could just go elsewhere but paying twice…

    I hope the cut went well!! I do this, too. And my hair is really thick and frizzes a bit at the ends–drives me crazy. I desperately need a cut but taking the time to find two hours seems exhausting. πŸ˜‰

    I feel you when it comes to serious procrastination getting a haircut (or in my world making any appointments whatsoever). I usually go around 9 months between cuts. And even then I still just do a walk-in because I still fail to make an appointment. so you are very much not alone.

    Hope your haircut went well!

    I’m exactly the same! I simply just don’t care enough about it. I frequently used to go almost two years without bothering when I was a student which was an absolute nightmare for my hairdresser at the time! Nowadays I make the effort to go once every couple of months (which I think is a lot but is apparently much less than most women! What!?) and it makes such a difference that I’m going to keep on trying. I don’t wear much makeup and I’m fairly casual so having slightly neater hair makes all the difference!
