And not necessarily in that order.
A few years back I decided I wanted to trade in my mid-length hair for something with a little more spunk. With each mile closer to the salon I found myself getting braver and braver. Maybe I’ll go for a pixie cut. I like pixies, they’re cute. I could be cute….especially in a pixie cut. Yes, pixie cut it is. A surge of adrenaline rushed through my body at the very thought of it. No more hiding behind my hair, it was going to be all me and all face. As I sat down in my stylist’s chair I had an epiphany: I do not/nor will I ever have Winona Ryder’s petite frame.
Slightly angered by my genetics, I decided to nix the pixie and went for a “longer” short haircut instead.
Before you read further, just know you won’t leave this post inspired or warm-hearted. You might not even leave this post glad you read it, but for those of you considering a short ‘do just in time for summer, I hereby offer the following short hair confessions for your consideration.
Going short taught me perhaps the most valuable lesson of all:
Having the same hair as a celebrity does not actually make you look like a celebrity. Ouch, that one hurt.
Have any short haired confessions to share?
