So, a while back I was getting restless and bored.
Do you ever get like that...just feel like you need a change? Well, I do.
I felt I NEEDED to change something NOW. But what?
Should I pierce my ear, again? No, too juvenile. Should I pierce my eyebrow? No, definitely not me.
My hair. I should change my hair. For years it's been my outlet for restlessness. It always works.
But what do I chage?
I KNOW! A perm!
Wait....what? No, been there done that, and NEVER AGAIN.
GOT IT! I'll dye my hair fire engine red! Okay, now I'm going loopy.
But then I saw this picture:
and this one:
and, oh my, this one:
I loved how it looked! Better than the long hair she had, and so feminine and sophisticated, and lovely.
And because of the hair commit-maphobe that I am, I just knew.
I've always wanted to do it. Chop off my locks. Short. Like a boy. I'd never been brave enough, But I decided "if you're ever gonna do it, DO IT NOW!" So, I went from this:
And I LOVE IT! I can't say I always feel feminine (hello! NO make up in morning = strong resemblance to a twelve year old boy!) or sophisticated (didn't think of this, but if you nurse your baby while lying down in the mid-afternoon, you wake up with one side of your hair COMPLETELY flat and the other sticking up, making you look like something out of a Lady Gaga's video. And that is NEVER good. Oh, and you get to go OUT looking like that. Joy.) And definitely not always lovely (see above brackets). But it's quick, it's easy, and I feel MUCH more put together than before. It takes me MINUTES to get my hair done, and I always look, at very least, neat. Needless to say, I am a convert to the pixie cut!
I am STILL trying to grow it out back to this:
Yes, THAT'S how long it's been since I had long hair.
Coincidence that I happen to have my first baby the very next year? I think not.
