I had a most liberating haircut this week. I love having my hair short.

Haircuts are tricky things. For a long time I was more or less unhappy with all the salon haircuts I got. Some just had no skill; some did not listen at all to what I asked for.

I got a good haircut at a hairdressing school in 2008. Then I tried out the various salons around Odenplan which is where I worked at that time. When I found a good one, I stayed, and I hope she never retires. So now I take the train to Odenplan whenever I need a haircut.
