So, the "after" do...



Weeellll, as expected, I look nicer and more feminine with long hair, and this is kinda ridiculously short. But I wanted them to donate the long locks to the cancer patients, and to do so they needed at least 10 inches, so I boldly told the hairdresser to go as high up as the ears. And, honestly, I don't mind looking like a 15-year-old boy for the time being, since it's MUCH easier to deal with. And in the next few months, as it grows, it will be fun to play with other styles.

Still, I had forgotten how unruly my hair is. ("You can't style it; you can only hope to contain it!" By the way, what is that quote, originally? I can't remember.) This photo is after taming down with gel and water. In the morning, it looks like I did a short Kim Novak style, then took a motorcycle ride without a helmet, then fell off and slept in a ditch. And climbed out through a hedge backward.

It's entertaining, at least.

You look really nice with short hair! I wish I had the courage to cut off my hair (it's down to my waist) but I'm too chicken. I cut it up to my shoulders when I was in high school, and as a result, I looked like a 12 year old. But you look good. And I know how it goes with babies and long hair. Kids have a field day with mine since its so freaking long.

Oh and yay for locks of love! I donated mine when I chopped it off in high school.

I guess you could keep yours in a braid or something, but even so, they tend to find the loose hairs and grip tight. As you've probably noticed.

Anyway...thank you!

My brother and sister would grab my hair by my scalp and pull it out of my bun/braid. So yes, they do find ways to have fun. My brother once pulled out a handful of hair. Not good times.
