Since I'm a lady of my word, I kept to my Labor Day weekend goal of getting a haircut. How do you like it? I personally love it so much....now.
When my hairdresser put my hair into a pony tail (so that I could donate it to Locks of Love later) and made the first cut...I thought I was going to throw up. I honestly started feeling nauseous. My mind started to race and crazy thoughts began to swirl around my head, "is it possible to glue hair back together? Can I make extensions out of my old hair and get that braided back into my scalp?" but luckily, my friend who works at the salon was there to reassure me that I made the right decision and I quickly got over my panic.
Short hair makes me feel so free. If you read this blog regularly then maybe you've picked up on how ambivalent I was towards my hair. When it was long, I was constantly at battle with it. Clawing at knots, endlessly redoing updos because my hair would be so heavy that after a half hour buns that once were high atop my head were now hopelessly to the nape of my neck, finding hair EVERYWHERE and how annoying and gross it was to look down at my floor and see practically a carpet of hair (I have wood floors in my room, mind you).
Anyway, I'm glad (relieved?) for the change.
