I know that this is going to sound crazy but lately I can't stop thinking about cutting my hair. Short. Like really short. It is crazy coming from me because I am always so against anyone else doing it. My advice to anyone who wants to cut their hair is DON'T! DON'T! DON'T! Especially after having a baby! I don't know why I feel the need so bad?
It's true, I still have weight to lose but that is not what is driving this desire for such a change. And not to toot my own horn or anything but I get alot of compliments on my hair. Michael loves it and I feel prettier when I do it but I just have this stomach full of butterflies when I think about chopping it off. I just want to do it soooo bad! Have you seen that Diet Coke commercial? The one where the pretty brunette goes into the barber shop and points to the man's haircut? I love it! What about Ellen DeGeneres' new hair? Or Mia Michael's? I know these two women are lesbians and I am clearly not and don't really want to look like one but man! What I wouldn't give!
I also worry about not being girly enough. Like would I need to constantly be wearing feminine clothes and lots of makeup? I used to wear red lipstick in high school quite a bit, would I have to do something like that again? And then they always say, "it's hair! It will grow back!" but my hair grows soooooo slow. I don't know how many of you remember but the last time I cut my hair short was sophomore year of high school. I cut it into a "duck butt" and I have never had short hair since then and it is only this long. I mean, it took foreverrrrr to grow out and it was so awkward for a long time. Did any of you know me when I constantly wore "Kat balls"? That was not the best summer of my life.
See, I just don't know what to do! I want to soooo bad but I am sooooo scared. I also think that in order to pull this haircut off I would definitely have to get skinny. Like even skinnier than I was before I had the baby. Maybe I should do that first and as a reward I can chop it all off. I bet I would lose at least another pound! Ha!
I tried to create a link to that Diet Coke commercial so hopefully it works for you.
Do any of you remember when I was obsessing over getting bangs? This was the haircut that started that obsession. Since cutting bangs about a year ago I am in the process of growing them out and regretting having done it in the first place. And that was just bangs!
These are just examples of what I am thinking. Honestly, the best example is Lindsey William's from high school. You Timpview gals know who I'm talking about and if you're her friend on FB then you are fully aware of how awesome she looks with her fabulous haircut. Check it out to get the full idea of what I am dreaming of. If you don't know her hopefully these will suffice.
Here is a picture of Ciara before and after. Isn't she so stunning either way? What do you think? Does she look better short or long?
Ok so obviously I am not a super model turned singer or a lesbian or married to a sexy soccer star. I am just a mom and a wife. Is this so silly? Am I crazy for looking at famous people with distinct style and thinking I could do the same? I have a hard enough time trying to dress myself in something cute/age appropriate so maybe I should master that before I take such drastic measures. And what about the winter months when I am all pasty?! Am I going to look like a pale, drab, sad Mom who should just give up already and buy the Lee brand jeans with the elastic waist band? Ah! This is so hard! Then there is the issue of divorce. I seriously think that Michael might consider divorcing me! It sounds like a joke but it is almost that serious. He loves my hair. What do you think about this whole thing? Give me your opinion. I want it.
