Or how to hit a moving target.
I may have mentioned previously that I have some issues with my hair. I cannot decide how to wear it. Should I cut it short? Should I grow it long? Should I keep it blondish? Should I go brunette? Should I dye it pink?
Well lately I've been growing it out. It is at a lovely mushroomy state right now, falling just at the bottom of my ears. In other words it is annoying. Tomorrow is d-day in a way. I have a hair appointment and I have to make a choice where to go from here.
I want to grow it out. I am so close to getting it to the style I want. But I am also close to pulling it all out. So I may be having Terri, my stylist, talk me down from the ledge. But if I can't get it to look exactly the way I want it to look length-wise, it probably means a color change. We will just have to see.
I also have an obsession with my daughter's hair. Because I didn't have long hair when I was growing up, I am keeping her hair as long as possible. Other than her bangs, her hair has never been cut (so she's the exact opposite of me).
But it is approaching an unruly length. I have to put it up every day to keep it out of her face. But she always complains that I pull her hair when I am putting it up so she preferrs it down. Which inevitably leads to her getting food in her hair or hair in her mouth, which she hates.
So this means it is probably time for her to get it cut. She could lose about 3 inches and it would still be below her shoulders, it would still be long. I could do that, I think. But then I think, if I'm going to get it cut why not donate it to Locks of Love and cut it short. Well this leads me to have flashbacks of being mistaken for a boy with my short hair and I can't do that to her.
So I do nothing and it keeps getting longer and more unruly. I can't even make an appointment to get her bangs trimmed for fear that I will make a hasty decision on a cut and traumatize myself (she wouldn't care in the least). Which means I have to trim her bangs at home and now they look all wonky and uneven.
