i was toying with hacking all of my hair off today. i mean REALLY hacking. possibly something like this... or, in anther picture, though i think it looks ... bad.. on her.... i just dunno. i wear my hair back all the time, i feel.. alien.. when i actually wear it down. it annoys the hell out of me when i do. but i'm..scared to chop it all off. i mean, granted, it's only hair. but also it would take like TWO YEARS for it to grow back, should i hate it. also granted, i do nothing but work, and certainly don't have time to date or even think of attracting the opposite sex at the moment. i think it may be fun to have something that i can wake up, toss some gel or pomade in, and go.

pros: something different. i would cut all the black out of my hair, so i could begin to experiment with colors again, especially since i'm working in retail, and not in a professional desk job. it would effectively be too short to have to pull it back. it would fit my personality better (possibly)...

cons: i might HATE it and cry. i might feel/look mannish (i already have issues with feeling unattractive and unfeminine lately, certainly don't want to make it worse..). it may make me look older. the pacific northwest already has enough women/girls running around with the long bangs and short everywhere else.

*sigh* just dunno. i SO wanna, but then i'm SO too terrified to.

at work today, i had an entire display fall on me. i was stocking the grid shelf near the entrance during our busiest time of day, turned to the side to grab more stock, and heard everything fall, and looked up just in time to see it lurch and to brace myself and hold it up. i was stuck. i tentatively pull my hands away, and the wall continues to fall towards me.

i yell, "SOME ASSISTANCE!!!!!?!!" loudly.

there's no answer.

a customer runs up and grabs one corner of it, trying to help me out. i frantically try to think of who the hell is out on the floor.

"TAM-MAAAY!!!!!" tammy does not answer.

"RUH-NAAAAAY!!!!!??" rene yaulps a 'what, hun?' from the register. i say that the wall is falling down on me.

all shoppers suddenly hear the following announcement:

"attention Michaels associates. all available associates in the building immediately to the middle aisle for Aubrey!"

i see workers meandering towards the front, looking at each other in confusion... is there a meeting? and why is aubrey of all people holding the meeting, and during Prime Time? is she QUITTING?

until they see me holding an entire wall display up by myself (the gracious customer was hidden around the corner), then a few rush up to me, as others run into the back to grab ties and other things to secure the wall. suddenly, the store manager is there, making sure that i'm not hurt.

it was a running gag the rest of the day about how i was calling a meeting because i almost died, and how i was going to throw my apron down in front of everyone and leave forever because of it.

HAHAHAHA...that reminds of that story about the little Dutch boy with his finger in the dam :D

As for hair...go for the first. I've had styles very similar to both of those, and the first is much more versatile (and forgiving!). I could only easily do two looks with the second.

and now, months later, i'm curious as to whether i should grow it out or hack it back off.

decisions, decisions.

My hair looks like that! I love that hair cut! It's hot and it doesn't take that long to style in the morning.

i guess i'm glad that i did it now, though it's in this weird arse stage and i'm not sure if i want to grow it out or hack it off again.

decisions, decisions.

and then there's my brother who wants me to grow it out - he was the one that gave me the suggestion to begin with, and then got quite angry when i did so!

ACK!!! NO!!! DON'T DO IT!!!

Besides, there are plenty of ways to get hair out of the way.

I'm glad you didn't get injured.

i'm not overly sad about hacking my hair off, now that i've gone and done it. i sort of miss it every once in awhile, but so enjoy it NOT being in my face.

now, whether to keep it short, or to grow it back out now ;)

cut it! please! it'll be fun

barretts make you feel less manish, belive me.. i know.. i went through the same thing.
its such a flattering cut! i totally miss my hair like that.

there is of course, bonuses either way.

i think you'd feel more independant and in control.

i think overall i am happy that i hacked my hair off, except for this feeling i've had lately, where i'm not sure if i want to hack at it again and play with the color more, or if i want to let it grow and be pretty again.

part of me wants to keep it short until i drop weight, sort of a reward type thing.

i never had a problem with feeling mannish, really, except for the bridesmaids dresses night. i mean, there's been bits here and there...

and i also feel that short hair makes me look SO much older...

I absolutely HATED my hair when I had it cut that way (the first) and the second (growing out).

I hated that I didn't feel feminine, at all, unless I took 30 minutes and styled it every morning. I resented that I couldn't leave it alone without risking looking like Alfalfa. When you get out of the shower, you have approx. 7 minutes to apply product and style the bitch before it dries beyond help (nevermind your bathroom is still too humid to make a hairstyle do anything good by then.

It took three years to get my hair to a place I liked it again (without looking like a ragamuffin the entire time). I felt less than pretty the entire time.

looking back at this NOW, i'm in limbo for my hair... can't for the life of me decide to hack it off again or to let it grow out. i'm excited that in a month, i will be able to pull the sides and front back to keep it out of my face!

but then i also think: if im so excited about being able to keep it pinned back all the time, why in the world do i even bother to grow it out?

i'm considering hacking it off again, until at least after summer. i'm considering going blonde again. *shrug* who knows. maybe i'll shave the damn thing.

but i DO miss having long hair sometimes. especially nights like greg's bday party where we wore our matching bridesmaids dresses. i felt like a boy in a gown.

Just wanted to put my $0.02 in, and say that I think short hair is cute on the grand majority of women. You know, so as long as it isn't a military crew cut or anything. :)

i SO wish that i was willowy or yoga maester looking so that i could get away with a half inch pixie cut!

i'm happy i chopped my hair. i had grown it out the last couple of months, but went and hacked it off again today! i love having practically no hair! (though sometimes i REALLY miss having long hair!)

I've had my hair cut like that before (the first one) and i loved it. In the morning i just tossed some mousse/gel in it and left. it was the easiest thing ever, and i looked hott. but, the only downside is that when i was trying to grow it out, it gets funky layers in it that don't always look cute, so that was a bit frustrating. I say do what you want, and if you are in Santa Barbara any time soon i'd even do it for you (for when i'm not in Michael's, i'm in Cosmetology school)

i realized how horrid trying to grow it out was recently. it's amazing how DRASTIC hair lengths (and ways your hair lays) seems to change from almost day to day.

when i got my hair cut a couple of days ago, she cut about from my ears back EXTREMELY spiky short, and then left 'bangs' from short (above my ears) to long (to my chin). i'm not sure if i like it THAT way, i feel like it makes my face look SO much fatter.

but now i know that if i should choose to grow it out after this, that soon the sides will be long enough to pull back into a barrette on the top of my head, to help cover the icky growing out underneath it.

says i.
