When I went to the salon on Friday and asked for a cut that included long layers but that didn't make my hair look shorter, the stylist kind of looked at me funny. Then, I asked her to make sure to cut off the damaged ends, but, again, to leave my hair long. At that point, she shook her head and chuckled before asking me if I would also like to have my cake and eat it, too. And I was like, "Is that even possible? Because, yes, I want that".
Obviously, I couldn't have everything that I wanted, but, I do now have a head full of healthier hair and some really fun long layers, despite losing a good two and a half to three inches of total length, so; I basically got the equivalent of a mini-cupcake and I ate that bitch with relish.
