Going to extremes

I'm considering cutting my own hair. Typically I get my hair cut once or twice a year, and when I go, I go all out. I go to an expensive salon and get highlights and low lights and a cut, and it runs me well over $100. Right now I really need a haircut. The last time I got my hair cut was last Spring/Summer (I can't remember but it was about a year ago) and my highlights are grown out and my hair is all misshapen.

Which brings me to my insanity. I am considering just cutting it myself. I cut my hair a million times in college, I cut my friend's hair too, and I think it will be fine. I also think I might be crazy for thinking it will be fine.

Gandhi was a strict vegan, and at a point later in his life, he gave up eating anything that would give life to other organisms, leaving him to eat only rotting fruit. Any good idea can be taken to the extreme. Now, I'm not comparing my potentially disastrous haircut idea to Gandhi, but I often think about him, so I wanted to mention it. I'll let you know how the hair situation pans out.

Okay, I've been behind you on everything up to this point, but PUT THE SCISSORS DOWN. I brought the boy to Super Cuts yesterday and I think they charge $16 for a woman's haircut! Leave the kids here while you do it! :)
