About Me

My photo

Change. I've learned to embrace it, ride it out til the end. Sometimes I'm kicking and screaming, other times weeping with my eyes clinched tight. Once in awhile I ride like a dog in a car, head out the window snorting what life has to offer. Mother to young adult children, a marriage of thirty years, and a desert to mountain to valley waltz with God have shaped me into someone I never imagined I'd be. Life is short and I want to live it. Tears, sighs, laughter and change. Every morsel granted to me. Scrambled, shaken or stirred.

Scribble and Scrambles ~ Hair Chopping for the Brave.

I'm a do-it-yourself hair chopper. My worst experience were two extreme bang snips...one perpetrated myself when I was 16, and the second was when 22 was 12 and I let her cut my bangs. Bad idea, both. Hair does indeed shrink up when it dries. However, IT DOES grow back. So hardly deterred, we have kept experimenting.

22 just discovered a great way to chop her hair and it looks fabulous. Keep in mind that this will be a cho
ppy look, almost like you'd get with a razor cut.

First, she pulled strands, like the size you'd use for french braiding (all the hair on your head separated into eight sections). She twisted the hair several times and then cut downward at an angle.

If you are going to try this, experiment on the ends first. She started right above her ears and went all the way down. She chopped about eight different chunks. It thins the hair out and leaves the choppy look that looks so cute on most chicks.

She's gorgeous. I'm a hair chopper too. I'd never let my 12 year old do it though *L*

I liked her M.O. Pretty neat idea. I do mine becasue I don't trust anyone. I barely trust my hairstylist. She got to talking last time and took chunks out where no chunks should have come out adn I was SO aggravated. At least if you do it yourself you have no one else to blame.

You are smarter than me, Birdie. Ha. I will not let another 12 year old near my bangs, but you never know what other stupid thing I may do.

There is def an addition of insult to injury when you have to pay someone to ruin your head for 3 or 4 very long weeks. I've spent some time weeping over what "professionals" have done. : )
