This is Beth. And this is one of the most dramatic hair transformations I’ve seen recently, complete with great story!

In Suzuki’s words:

Since you asked about my thought process, a less-is-more spirit has been compelling me. After a lengthy period of neglect, I recently overhauled my office, cleaned out my closet, pruned my fruit trees, and stepped into a hair salon for the first time in a decade. (My husband is now off the hook for trims.) The time had come for an actual hairstyle!

Specifically, I desired a 1920s style that would work with my waves. I had to cut it a few times before it approximated what I had in mind.Then I had to figure out how to let it dry and get it styled into a somewhat decent shape. (The alternatives provide family entertainment. I can now look just like a human Q-Tip or like my head’s on fire.)

One thing I noticed after the latest cut was: Oh, I have a neck! Suddenly, jewelry seems apropos and looks right.

The style itself is a work-in-progress and I’m having fun experimenting. Change is good!
