The Long & Short of It
August 4, 2011 § 7 Comments
Here is a topic I don’t believe I’ve covered yet in all my years of blogging. I want to get a haircut. To be exact, I am thinking about getting a haircut. I am not quite sure if I want it. However, my hair has looked the same for about the past 10 years. That’s an incredibly long time for one haircut, especially for a fashion-loving girl like myself. Right now my hair is long and straight, parted in the middle, highlighted blonde but mostly brown. You all know me. I think. For those who don’t, here:
I’m tired of this hairstyle. I’m tired of curling it all the time, because if I don’t curl it, it just hangs there with a half-hearted wave in the back. I don’t really like to straighten it all the time; the style’s a little too ubiquitous for me. Therefore, when my aunts suggested I cut my hair short, I actually gave it some thought. This is what they want on me:
What do you all think? Give your honest opinions here. Feel free to tell me it’d look terrible on me, but just say it nicely, you know? I have sensitive feelings. That’s why I spill them for the entire internet. It’s a radical change, but right now I am just so sick of my long hair. I want to chop it off. I think I can pull off a short hairstyle because I will maintain it. I won’t let it get all raggedy or uneven. I always wear makeup and have a rather (meaning totally) feminine style of dressing, so I’m not worried about looking overly boyish.
Honestly, it’s just hair. It will grow back, and pretty quickly too. If I have to grow it out and endure wearing clips and barrettes to hold it back, so be it. For all my love of make-up (I rue the day the local Penney’s put in a Sephora counter!) and high heels and haute couture, I don’t really think about my hair all that much. It’s always been the one ‘beauty’ aspect in which I never chose to experiment.
Let me know what you think!
