Now that my parents are safely on their way to Boston and thus out of internet communication range until they see me tonight (You cut your hair? AGAIN?!? Why? Well, sure I like it, it’s just so…short), I thought I would give everyone the update on my current styling selection. How is it different? I’m not really sure. Do you like it? Again, I don’t really know yet. It definitely feels…funky.
The most obvious change is a lightening of the back of my head. Stanley the stylist razored it so that the underneath layers wouldn’t be weighted by lots of other hair on top, allowing the bottom part to curl a little. I think that’s working, but it’s really hard for me to objectively guage the curliness of the hair on the back of my head. I feel myself looking down alot. That could also be because I don’t really know how to type and I need to watch my fingers, but don’t tell my mom. Just say it’s a ‘new haircut head imbalance’. That sounds almost medical, as if it’s not my fault.
There are probably other changes as well that I’m not aware of yet. He did take a bit off the front, but mostly wanted to leave that curl intact. I feel like sometime soon the rising curls and the old ones are gonna have a fisticuffs, but I’m not sure who will come out the victor. I’m not sure yet who I’m even rooting for. Still, the new experience is to be valued. I haven’t had my hair cut by someone other than myself since that time in China they gave me the ‘mushroom’ style. I had to go home and fix it myself and just live with it really short for awhile. This style is nothing like that disaster.
Really, the whole new experience is due to Mike. He’s always encouraging me to try new things, and thinks it would be nice for me to try and new style, or do more ‘girl things’. So here’s to that. Hopefully this new experience will be one of the grow – to – love variety.
