Well, folks, it's done! Thanks to some very generous people I not only reached my target of $1,000, but passed it! And so, true to my word, today I became shorn.
My thanks to No Frills Hairdressing at Wyndham Village shopping centre on Sayers Road in Tarneit. The lady who did it for me at first looked at me like I was nuts! She even offered me a few minutes to think it over. But I said "no, I said I'd do it if I reached my target, so I'm doing it!". She laughed, and off we went. She was nice enough to tie it up for me before she snipped so I could keep it. After that I shook my hair out and damn if it actually didn't look good in that little bob. Just between you and me, if I hadn't reached my total that's the haircut I was going to get anyway, so it was good to see it looked nice. Well, then she started snipping the long bits off in preparation of shaving, and damn if that didn't look too bad too!
So we started with the No. 4. It was kind of like a head massage. But when I saw the length of the 4 I said "nah, let's go a bit shorter" so we ended up going with a No. 3. And I don't think the results look too bad!
