I am being crucified on Facebook because I spent $350 to get my hair colored and cut. I'm a single mom with two kids. I make ends meet and do my best with what I have. Last Saturday, I paid $350 to get my hair cut and colored. I posted pictures on Facebook before friends, family and others started vilifying me for spending so much money on myself rather than my kids. They made me feel horrible. Should I feel this way? Shouldn't I be able to do something for myself? What is your opinion on this? Do I deserve the criticism or not?
