To everyone out there who is not interested in the CRUCIAL ISSUE of what my hair looks like, I apologize. I’ll understand if you skip today’s blog post.
But you best come back tomorrow, hear? *teacher face*
So, here’s the thing: I love having long hair.
NO. Hang on. I DON’T love having long hair. I love the IDEA of having long hair. Like this:
No, this has NOTHING to do with my secret desire to be Hermione Granger. Why would you suggest that?
Currently, my hair is long. This is more out of a lack of time/energy to get a haircut rather than the actual desire to grow out my hair, but the end result is the same: I have lots of long hair. The problem, though–and if you follow me on Twitter, you heard about this WAY too much today–is that my hair is starting to look less Emma Watson and more . . . pirate.
The crazy look on my face and the fluorescent lighting aren’t doing me any favors, either.
Granted, I don’t have a whole TEAM of people with blow dryers and flat irons and curling irons and mousse and thirty-five different round brushes of varying widths and bristle consistencies. I’m sure Emma had a little help for that glamour shot up there.
BUT, the pirate hair picture begs the question: Is it time to cut?
I used to have a SUPER short haircut that I don’t think I want to go back to:
It was fun for a while, but I got sick of not being able to do ANYTHING with it. So I don’t think I’ll cut it that short again. I also had this haircut, which is short-ish, but not quite as extreme as the one above:
And then there was the time I got bangs cut, a la Zooey Deschanel:
And here’s a non-pirate picture of my long hair. In other words, this is what my long hair has the potential to be if I would quit letting it air dry or French braiding it just to avoid dealing with it:
So what do you think? Leave it long? Cut it off? Shave my head and be done with it? Does anyone have any secret weapon hair products they’d be willing to tell me about? Is ANYONE still reading this?
