Hair Identity

Last night I had about 6 inches of hair chopped off. Getting my hair cut is always a traumatic experience for me. It's not the haircut itself, but rather the results that I dread. Maybe that's why I don't get it done as often as I ought. Whatever the reason, its been about 6 months since the last cut.

As always, right off the bat I hate it. It's too short. It always takes me several days to get used to seeing a different hairstyle, so I expected this reaction. Unfortunately, this time I think its going to stick around. My hair is in this weird in-between length that I hate. Neither I nor my stylist anticipated the amount of bounce that would result from the loss of weight in my hair. This length reminds me of all the horrible awkward times in my life - 8th grade, trying to find myself in my first apartment... So this haircut brings back all sorts of horrible memories and insecurity.

Now I need to decide if I'm going to wait for it to grow out or make it even shorter.

You're funny. I currently have the haircut I was trying to avoid by chopping it even shorter than I did and getting sick of it. This is that horrible growing-it-out stage.

And there's never enough tequila.
