I just had four inches cut off my hair. To some this may seem like no big deal, others may gasp knowing the difficulty one can have in cutting any large amount of hair. My hair is still by no means short, mouths don’t drop when I walk into my now very regular studio, but it feels shorter to me. Not just shorter, lighter. It is making me feel lighter. It feels amazing. And it has opened the door to more hair possibilities.
I’ve said for years that once my hair hit my butt or I turned ____ I would cut my hair off all the way to my chin. Now that I am knocking on the door of that very age, I’m wondering if I really will go through with it. Most people insist I can’t. They make a big stink about how I can never cut my hair. Nine out of ten people have as strong of a reaction as they might if I said I was cutting their own hair. I even had a photographer say to me, “If you cut your hair, Hibbard is going to break up with you.”
Thankfully, since I’ve already cut a good hunk, that is not true. Hibb is one of the few people who is AOK with whatever I want to do to my hair; cut it, dye it, shave it. But I wouldn’t put my money on shaving if I were you.
I have been thinking about dyeing it though.
How do we feel about ombre or blonde tips? Is it too little to late to try to jump on this bandwagon now?
I just feel as though I could use a bit of a pick me up, and if I’m not going to cut it all short, won’t a little touch of blonde make me feel fun in the summer ending my twenties?
It will still be my hair in texture, length (that it is now), and style, but just a bit of sunshine added in. But I would need to make sure it didn’t end up looking like this
That would be bad.
Or it can still all just come off into a short little bob…
It is just hair. It grows back.
