THINGS I'M THINKING WHEN DECIDING WHETHER TO GET A HAIRCUT
Readers Beware: 👹photos ahead. #331
- •You haven't had an honest-to-goodness true hair-alteration since May 2013, when you cut 13 inches off and looked like a deeply unfortunate flapper wannabe.It was my big college-graduation move. No regrets, but it was definitely not my best look.
- •Remember, one of the big reasons you chopped off so much all at once was so you could donate it, as it was five months after you'd been diagnosed and discovered that you'd never again be able to donate blood as had been your custom.A heartbreak I'll carry till the grave.
- •So. I know you're thinking it's time for a chop because your hair had finally gotten long enough again that it's becoming a (minor) issue when you lay down for bed at night,As in I keep laying down on it and unintentionally getting it caught beneath an elbow or shoulder which results in very minor pain and/or irritating inconvenience.
- •And that you were thinking about cutting off enough to donate once again, which would leave you with a long bob, aka "lob."Is this the Bradgelina of hairstyles? Hopefully it don't end as badly.
- •Now listen here. You obviously don't need to go and chop off your hair if it's going to lower your looks even lower into the trash heap than they already are, so faux-lob it and take a few pics of your face and see how you like it.
- •This could be cute except everyone on planet earth knows I'm not going to be rolling the ends everyday like a 50s housewife.
- •Also it somehow makes me look matronly? Hmmm. Maybe I could get some layers to help with that? But my hair is already so thin, there's pretty much only one layer to work with.
- •I look like an adolescent boy trying to grow Thor-hair.
- •So. For the price of giving another child suffering hair loss a wig, you'll look like the Beast post-transformation.Can I handle that again? 🤔
- •But remember, your hair was shorter than this on the Trip of Dreams! And those are some of your favorite pictures ever!The double decker bus...😍
- •A Midsummer Night's Dream at The Globe...😍
- •The Eye of London...😍
- •Peter Pan statue in Kensington Gardens... 😍😍😍
- •So?Oh man. Take me back. 🇬🇧
- •HEY. FOCUS. HAIR.Right, right sorry. Um....
- •Well?!I'll sleep on it. Maybe an answer will fly into my head in the night.
