Oh ... Really?

Contemplating My Lovely Locks

Should they stay or should they go?

My hair has changed recently. All my life, it has been straight as a stick, or maybe a little straighter than that. Not a curl, not a wave or even a curve to be found. On the few occasions that I did cut it short, it just lay there, all sticky-outie and spikey. But I have noticed that it now has some waves to it. Not a lot, but some. It's also getting very long, and it's needs to be cut.

So the question then is, do I cut a little, or a lot? A little would mean a trim, to get rid of the ratty ends. A lot would be, oh say ... shoulder length. Right now, it is about the middle of my back. Oh, and I have kept it mostly in the same style for ... too long. Very long hair is kinda "young" for someone my age - which is fixin' to increment another year soonish.


I dunno. I'm tired of it ... I want something new, something different ... something that does not look like an mature woman trying desperately to hang on to the last remnants of her youth. I wish I could try on a new cut and style just to see if I like it. Maybe I'll just go for the trim and talk with the stylist ... and I need to find a new one of those too, the swishy gay guy that used to do it up and disappeared on me ... (He was so swishy, he'd lisp the word "Cracker")

Ugghhh ... I think I will just go get my nails done and look for new shoes instead.

*Now Playing on RadioParadise: "Changes" by David Bowie ... an omen?

First, lemme get this out: I'm not a hairdresser (not that there's anything wrong with male hairdresses...John Edwards would make a good one...)

I did find a couple of quotes I'd like to share with you, to help you decide what's best for you.

Jamie Lee Curtis: With short hair you have to get a haircut every two or three weeks. And if you're coloring your hair, you have to color it that often. Every time I did it, I felt fraudulent.
That's a scream...

Tucker Carlson: To be a feminist, you could cut your hair really short. You have to be really angry about something.
At your hair, maybe?

Well, those are new twists. From your favorite Bard, an older cut...

The Two Gentlemen of Verona: II, vii
LUCETTA: But in what habit will you go along?

JULIA: Not like a woman; for I would prevent
The loose encounters of lascivious men:
Gentle Lucetta, fit me with such weeds
As may beseem some well-reputed page.

LUCETTA: Why, then, your ladyship must cut your hair.

JULIA: No, girl, I'll knit it up in silken strings
With twenty odd-conceited true-love knots.
To be fantastic may become a youth
Of greater time than I shall show to be.

Maybe you should consider a hat?

I cut my hair boy-short two weeks ago and have been loving it ever since! Now I wish I could get back all the time I'd spent over the last 9 years messing with conditioners, hot oil packs, product, blow-dryers, velcro curlers, flat irons and the inevitable pony-tail holder (which is what my hair wound up in every day, anyway)!

Yeah, I'll have to get it cut more often, but at least now it looks nice!
