I Think I’m Grown Up Because I’m Not Crying About My Hair

You may or may not have read the tweet late last week about my haircut. After cutting off some length and going for bangs the last time around (huuuuge transition), I was just going in for a trim. I loooove my stylist…rave about her actually….but I’m still feeling like this cut is too short all the way around.

It looked cute the first night, styled professionally, and on one of the best dates, ever.  Butttt since then it’s kind of been a certifiable disaster. My favorite comment was, “I’m trying to decide if I like your hair or not. It’s kind of retro…I think my mom had that hair cut in the 80’s.” Quickly followed by, “and I think my mom is the most beautiful person in the world.”

But the moral of the story is this: a.} I DO like standing out in a crowd b.} It’s just hair and it’ll grow back {stimulated by some powerful omega-3s}. AND c.} I’m a grown up because I haven’t even cried once.


Oh, and yes…the hair clip is a project from the lovely Rachel Denbow that I talked about last week. Happy Monday!

Well – in my most humble, unbiased 🙂 opinion, once everyone gets over the shock of such a dramatic change they will see that your hair is adorable, trend setting and just plain fierce.

Definitely different. But honestly you can pull off so many styles. And I’m still jealous of your curls. 🙂

I think it’s cute and I agree with Shelley that it’s trend-setting and in two months you’ll get different comments as their eyes catch up with you. I can’t believe what people will say. I had a friend who got a super short cut and people kept saying “well, it’ll grow back.” We should start a support group because I got a cut I’m not sure I love. Only Phil (who is obligated to say he likes it) and the hippies at work (who said nothing at all) have seen it so far. I didn’t cry either, but it was very close. Hair cuts are like the prom. You go in thinking everything is going to be perfect, only to leave disappointed.

@Beth — yep that’s kind of how i’m feeling. Just got back from seeing 40 vendors in 2 days…and most people commented, but did not compliment. It’s already grown out a bit and is starting to relax. I’m loving it 🙂
