Bob had developed a bit of a comb over look. I trimmed the top a week or so before, the weekend Brian was gone, but then he started getting too wiggly and I decided to wait until Brian was home to help keep him still. Turns out that was the right call since all Brian had to do was read him a book on the bathroom floor while I snipped off some of his curls. I left some small curls, but it was just getting too long in the back for how much hair was on top. Now the mullet is gone.
On other hair news, I was getting tired of my fading blue hair so I made the appointment to chop it all off a month in advance. The day before my appointment I made a last hoorah crown braid, my favorite hair style ever. I wanted to go super short, but longer in the front. Brian said I could do whatever I wanted, but he seemed like he'd prefer me to not go quite as short as I was planning. I figured that I can always go shorter next time if I want and went with a bob that was slightly longer. I also wanted highlights and since I wasn't going super short there was still going to be the tiniest bit of color on the tips in the front.I was wanting honey/gold highlights, but had to go with a cooler blonde which was whiter than I prefer in the end.

**Update A few days after I wrote this I figured out what was bothering me about the back of it when styling it myself. It was just too long for me. I messaged my amazing hair dresser and she said she could trim that back shorter if I could wait until after my trip to Venice. So, I went back and she did a whole new cut with a shampoo and blow dry and didn't charge me a thing. She even turned down the tip I offered her. I am much happier with how it feels now that she took it up to my hair line in the back. That's how I used to keep it when I had short hair because I don't like constant hair on my neck. I need to be able to escape it with an up-do if it's long enough to touch my neck.
