Have you ever noticed that women have a thing with hair? Some have big, flat, curly, long or short!
And they say it’s personal.
I agree it is, but for me it’s mainly just hair. I don’t mind cutting it of. 2 years ago, I had loooong hair, not much unlike what I do in this picture.
But I realised, that my long hair looked sad and did nothing for me. The same happened today. I had saved for 2 years to get it to be this long! I thought I would be cool to have it long, so I could braid and curl and what ever people with long hair does.
That did not work for me – as my hair got longer, it was just more flat and annoying. It looked again sad. I have realised that long hair is not for me, or at least not the normal long hair we are used to.
So today I had an appointment with my hairdresser (she is amazing!) and I told her, she could do what ever she wanted – but I do not want it to be long anymore. I want to go back to 2 years ago, but longer!
We agreed on one thing – the layer of hair from the midst and from after my temples HAD TO GO! No way am I ever going back – this is the thing weighs my hair doooooooown. So she went bonkers with the machine – something I do not mind. I seriously don’t! Last time we did this, there was a lady with the same hair issues as me who wanted it fixed. But her only thing was – she did not want it short. So when my hair dresser went zooooom with the machine, the lady almost cried and went “YOU ARE CRAZY!”.
You wouldn’t think that the shorter hair I ended up with would be easier to curl, braid or style in any way – but it is, and you can’t see that half of my hair is gone (the under layer! The length is pretty obvious!)
See I have tons and tons of haaaair!
The “slings” are basically my sideburns – so that when I have my hair down it won’t look weird.
Here is my quick attempt to curl – practice makes perfect right?
I looooove the no hair, feeling – I’m ready for summer with this – I like this change a lot. (Please don’t min my huuuuge pimple on my forehead!)
So my conclusion is – that they say it’s personal, but for me it’s just hair. Take a leap, it’s only hair. It will most likely grow out again.
