Good hair day

March 9, 2004

Several inches of my hair got lopped off this weekend. I’d let my hair go long the past couple months just to see what it would look like. It was the longest it’s been since junior high. It was fun to wear ponytails, pigtails and buns, but soon that was all I was wearing. My hair took forever to blow dry and strangled me in my sleep. I made a hair appointment with Matt to stop the insanity.

When Matt finished, he smiled and let out a sigh of relief. “Back to normal!”

I looked at my reflection, then him, quizzically. “Normal? I haven’t had hair this short in so long, it doesn’t feel normal. But it does feels good.”

    I always have something about hair because I get bored with it fast but I’m letting my hair grow longer now. The shortest I got was skinhead! Looked cool though I don’t want to do it again. I did it thrice. ^_^ I would want to cut my hair short again but I don’t think I’m ready for that now.

    You’re looking great. :D

    I think the new haircut is very cute. I love how it feels soo much lighter once it is chopped off.
