Yesterday I cut myself some bangs. I haven't had bangs with this round of grown out hair. I'm ready for something new.
My hair is a constant source of frustration. It's STRAIGHT...except for the annoying cow-lick on the right side of my forehead. It's fine, but there's quiet a bit there. It's impossibly healthy because I don't color, blow dry, use product, curl, straighten...it just exists. Most days you'll find it in a pony, out of the way and forgotten. And even on the RARE occasion that I actually style it, it eventually ends up pulled back or tucked behind my ears.
Lately I've had this urge to go back to super short. I love the carefree style of super short. Wash, a little wax, viola. With my schedule, low maintenance is key. I go online to find photos of examples of cute pixie cuts. All the "reviews" suggest pixie cuts work best on oval faces with fine feminine features, flawless skin, and good make-up. Ummmm....not me!
So I hesitate.
Then I remember why I always grow it out after a year or so of having it super short...because I want to feel more like a girl. I mean it doesn't do much for your self esteem when you're mistaken for a guy! (Yes, it has happened!) And as much as I hate to admit it, I care what people think...especially my hubby who I know loves me regardless, but who prefers my hair longer.
Looking back through photos of me over the past 10 years or so, it seems like I'm always in a stage of growing it out. I actually found this ONE photo of when it was super short the last time around. (Pics of me seem to be few and far between...but that's another issue all together.) Other than the fact I was 40 pounds heaver then than now, I don't think it looks too bad.
But it's not the cute close head hugging pixie I envision. So what's a girl to do? Suggestions welcome!
