I see the merit in these points. I do. But today in Boston, it's a humid 96 degrees. And my hair--already thick when not preggers--looks and feels like a giant, fuzzy mushroom on my head. It's not especially long--falling just above my shoulders--but there's just so MUCH of it. So I'm ready to pull the trigger, rational arguments be damned. Crazy? Maybe. Cooler? Definitely.
I casually mentioned the word "haircut" to my husband a couple nights ago, and saw the crestfallen look on his face. What is it with guys and hair? Can he really like the frizzy helmet I'm sporting right now? Where I see mushroom, does Nick see girlish charm? Or maybe he thinks short hair is just one step away from mom jeans and clumpy clogs.
Maybe I'm a little worried about that myself.
Whatever it is, I knew I needed some visual aids to help us both feel better about my decision. And so I prepared my presentation and last night over dinner, displayed before Nick several pictures of hot, young actresses with cute, short hairstyles. As he visibly relaxed, I called the salon and booked a 12:30 appointment for today.
And away I go...
Ahhh, that feels better. Oh, hello, neck. It's so nice to see you.
So I did it, and let me tell you, watching all that hair fall to the floor of the salon was very, very gratifying. And while I might not look like the next hot young thang in Hollywood, I do feel like a new woman. In fact, I might need to go out and get some new shoes to go with my new hair.
Anyone know where I can get some good clogs?
Everyone should have short hair!! Ok, well not everyone - but I think more people look good with short hair than long. If they weren't so afraid that they would look too "butch" and not feminine enough.ReplyDelete
I chopped my hair ala Gwenyth in Sliding Doors when I broke up with a terrible boyfriend after wasting 3.5 years of my life with him. I was in college, and it was a big risk but I did it, and have never looked back.
I have had everything from pixie barely any hair, to long in front short in back, short in front long in back whispy (which I am rocking now) - there are so many options for short hair! And I feel so much sassier...
I have crazy thick hair too and it was beautiful when long, but I feel like I became "me" when I cut it - and my husband thinks it is totally sexy - even when I am fat and pregnant. HA!!
You go Mama! Especially when it is this freaking hot out - cut away!!
Thanks Mama J! I think this feels more like "me" too... And it's the only way I'm going to lose weight these days! :)ReplyDelete
