Hair style is the final tip-off whether or not a woman really knows herself — Hubert de Givenchy, Vogue, July 1985
I did it. Well, to be honest, I do it quite frequently, about every year or so. But this time, this time it was different. This time I went s.h.o.r.t. Even my hairdresser said it was the shortest she’s cut it in the four+ years that she’s been doing my hair. It’s different, that’s for sure.
I love it though. And I feel like I needed the change. I’m that type of person that goes and gets her haircut when she wants to bring on some new life experiences. I typically get one right before I get a job, or as soon as I get a new job. I like the energy and the process of letting go.
The hubby, well, he hasn’t yet voiced an opinion (as he was a fan of my long hair and tended to like it better straight rather than curly – and that nearly never happened!). He said he’ll wait and see if it grows on him. Then again, he’ll also need to “see” it again when I let it go curly instead of straight. He just needs to remember that it’s only hair and well, mine grows like a well watered, weed and can be full on long again by spring if I so desired.
Either way…bring on the changes, baby!
