Chop, Chop

Written by Amelia

My hair has been driving me crazy. Last week, I got so mad at it that I “punished” it by putting it in a bun for five consecutive days. Not a new bun each day, but one bun. For five days.

My hair remained in its time-out while I slept, showered, and even when I went out in public. My most sincere apologies to anyone who had to endure my appearance. Over the weekend, toward the end of the bunstrocity, I was at my cousin’s outdoor birthday party where I believe a wasp mistook my hair for its nest. It was that bad.

So I made a hair appointment and had it all cut off. Don’t worry, I took before and after photos.

BEFORE:

I call the first one “Hair Despair”, the second “I’m Getting My Hair Cut Today!”, and the third “Hair Rage.”

AFTER:

The first photo is what my youngest sister came up with when I asked her to take a picture of my hair. Like, seriously? She got the hang of it, though.

I feel about ten pounds lighter, five degrees cooler, and seven times less likely to wage an all-out war with my hair anytime soon. Sometimes you just need to chop off all the dead weight dragging you down.

    Thank you both. Cathy, I feel more like me with short hair. I had forgotten that when my hair was long.
