I have been dying to do my hair since we got back! My last haircut was more than 8 months ago! It is really hard to find someone to cut my hair even here, because it's so thick and it chunks up easily and I'm picky. And in Taiwan, they mostly all have the same hair type, so it's really hard to find someone who is good with other hair textures. I was ready for a change, and I debated cutting it above my shoulders, but I decided to go halfway first. I chopped about 6 inches off, and I'm glad I didn't cut it any shorter because it is so thick, I'm sure I would have ended up looking like a human Q-tip! But I really like it, and more importantly so does Nate!
