Aaaaaaand…I minimize my hair once more!

Soooo…I minimize my hair once more.

Though I’d been dreaming of lengthy hair Gisele Bündchening down my again. I used to be nearly there.

I actually struggled to get to that time, too. Though the rising out interval doesn’t hassle me that a lot, since I like random lengths. And regardless that it doesn’t matter what I do, I nonetheless choose how I look with my hair pulled again, I stored telling myself I simply wanted to get to that supreme size for it to essentially look good.

For one factor, let’s be sincere on this splendidly feminist time – I actually grew my hair out simply to please Chris. And guys – let’s not even attempt to determine what cliche, Freudian purpose, or Gisele Bündchen acquired into them, however plenty of the time, guys appear to choose lengthy hair.

I’d even go as far as to counsel a idea: they love brief hair at first, as a result of it makes us look free, totally different, and a bit wild – however as soon as we’re with them, I don’t know – lengthy hair reassures them?

Anyway, I’m getting off the topic.

My hair was lastly attending to the minimal size I hoped for – to the highest of my again, and it was lengthy sufficient to do a really excessive bun (my favourite type).

However then I began to attempt leaving it down, and that’s when the explanation I minimize it, what, 6 years in the past? got here flooding again to me.

Nothing had modified – not my facial construction (preserving my hair away from my face works higher for me), not my hair (tremendous dry ends with an inclination towards oily roots, tremendous curly at some point, tremendous straight the subsequent, and a totally totally different texture relying on the climate) (oh, and on prime of all of it, I’ve a bit smattering of grays to drive me additional loopy now), not my laziness (I’m simply by no means going to be the lady who spends a ton of time styling her hair).

As for dry shampoo, I don’t know the way all my pals who like it do it, however once I use it, I really feel like a bag of damp flour has been dumped on my head.


So I began considering fondly of all my years with brief hair, the years once I forgot what a nasty hair day was, once I was getting compliments on my hair daily, and I didn’t want a hair stylist even once I was attending a gala. So I talked to Chris about all this and I feel we’ve most likely gotten to some extent in our relationship the place it’s superb, he’s reassured, (or he doesn’t care haha!) as a result of he simply mentioned: “No matter makes you content.”

So I referred to as Clyde, the one who got here up with my brief minimize within the first place, to ask him if he knew somebody good in LA, and he mentioned “Me! I’m coming to LA subsequent weekend, I’ll minimize your hair for you.”

And he added: “It’s good to vary issues up, however I at all times thought brief hair regarded actually good on you…”

Gah! So right here we go once more.

I wished it brief, however not fairly as brief as earlier than. I’d stored a bunch of pictures I cherished of Laetitia Casta throughout her brief hair interval in my photograph album.

So Clyde got here, we minimize all of it off, and we even coloured it, and…pheew, I didn’t remorse it for a second. However the fascinating factor is – hear fastidiously when you’re considering of chopping your hair – it takes just a few phases to search out the precise minimize.

For instance, within the photograph, that was the primary section of the minimize. It’s not unhealthy, however for me, it was too lengthy within the again, and I didn’t really feel like having the identical lengthy bangs I had earlier than. I stored it that method for some time, a couple of month, however then once I went again to New York on the finish of September, I reworked the thought a bit to provide it a bit extra construction.

We additionally did a keratin therapy to make my curls extra manageable, which made my hair a bit too straight at first – however daily the feel will get a bit nearer to the best way I prefer it.

So, in brief – a pleasant haircut can actually be life altering, however you shouldn’t hesitate to check out various things over just a few months to determine what the perfect size and shade is for you.

So there you go! I’m actually pleased with it! What do you all assume?
