I haven't had short hair for five years.
About two days ago I decided I MUST have short hair. The back was feeling bulky, and I thought it was looking a little straggly. I seem to only wear it up these days anyhow, so off to the salon I went.
I was scared, because my hair is crazy in a way that's very different from your average Korean's, but thought... what the heck? I found a nearby family hair salon, called Shampoo, that was staffed almost entirely by men. Male hairdressers listen to what you want. It's refreshing.
So I managed to explain well enough. My hair is too curly, so it ended up a little shorter than what I'd hoped for, but it'll grow out. I got some home dye and the final result is below.
